“I gave Tony Khan a discount. I gave him a discount and said, ‘Tony, I’ll sign for this money because it’s the pandemic, but after this year and a half we’re getting stronger I knew he was signing the wrong guy. He was signing the Twitch guy.
“He bases his opinions on my Twitch and that’s where it all started with Kip. I knew it wasn’t me. It’s not who I am. I knew once a year and a half I was going to show him who I am and what I’m capable of and we’re going to sit and talk like men for men’s money. That’s exactly what happened.
“Sometimes I have 30-45 seconds, but I take advantage of it every time. That’s the whole story. It’s not just about having great games or having 20-30 great games. We “We don’t have a lot of TV. It’s about what you do with the 30 to 45 seconds you have. That’s where I excel the most.”
