"Camp has been tremendous. I've pushed my body to a new level. I'm in great condition. We're just waiting for the 29th.
 
"I always try to add to my game in training camp. I'm trying to perfect my craft. Defense is one thing you can never have too much of.
 
"I want to make someone miss and make them pay. I'm focused on my balance and being aggressive.
 
"I've always been an intelligent fighter. I'm trying to stay two or three steps ahead of my opponent. I want them to adjust me. I can let my skill dictate the action.
 
"I'm visualizing an A+ performance on Tuesday night. I'm still learning and finding myself every day. I can't wait to bring it all into the ring."

"I've had to slowly get back to it after my hand surgery but I feel great now and ready to go.


 
"I'm anticipating a clean sweep Tuesday night. I can adapt to anything on the fly in the ring. I'm a smart, all-around fighter.
 
"Get your popcorn early because you're going to see everything in the ring, you never know what you'll see.
 
"I'm fighting for my family and friends. I've had so much support through my injury. I learned a lot from sitting out. I'm ready to get in there and test it out."


 
ANDREW TABITI
 
"I've been working hard in the gym on my conditioning and just staying in great fight shape.
 
"The main thing I'm looking for is the win. I have to respect each guy in front of me and if the knockout comes, I'll take it.
 
"I want to stay active and just keep gaining experience in the ring. I'm getting better with each fight."
