UFC: Welcome to the 29th season of The Ultimate Fighter! How does it feel to have this opportunity?
Blood: I don’t really like to call it an opportunity. Opportunity feels like a place where you can lose out or where you are only there for a minute. It’s mine. I’m ready.
UFC: What do you bring to the Octagon that makes you a force to be reckoned with?
Blood: Guys better watch that left hook and they better watch my right hand and wrestling. I can fight and I can fight. Wherever he goes, I’m ready. I know they’re ready too, but I’m ready to see the white in their eyeballs and see them panic.

UFC: What will be the biggest challenge for you in the series?
Blood: Just missing my newborn son and my wife. This is my main thing that is difficult. I miss them. It’s my everything and it’s my world. When it comes to fighting these guys, they’re just men. They bleed like me. I have the defense; they are not going to touch me. I will make it one-sided and dominate.
