God willing, I'm healthy, I'm in shape and ready to get there with this victory and the opportunities they want to give me. I can see myself fighting for the belt very soon. It's just a matter of doing my job and fighting to the best of my ability. Everything is possible. When I started my UFC career, this was the vision I had in mind. It wasn't super solid, but I definitely wanted to become champion. And then, somewhere in the back of my mind, I thought about becoming a champion in two divisions too,” said Namajunas.
