Speaking with Jon Anik in the post-fight interview, Waldburger commented, "I love this sport, I love everything about it... we're here to put a show on for you guys, I don't like to go the distance, I want to finish these fights... there wasn't really a gameplan going into this, he gave me an arm and I took it...
