Lerone Murphy’s post fight interview

“I come here to die,” Murphy said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “I come here for a war.

I packed all my stuff in the hotel. I didn’t even know if I was coming home. That’s what I was coming for. “I’ve had the hardest road out here. I’ve put in the work, continue to climb. I’m not really bothered about the rankings, I’m just trying to get to that title.

I just took out a legend, Edson Barboza, who was on a two-fight winning streak. I deserve the recognition now. I’ve been in there with the best of the best. I just showed my worth. I’m going to be champion. Simple”.
