"Joe Goossen is an exceptional trainer and he just told me to work from a different direction facing a southpaw. I just made sure to block his punches with my elbows. That was the only adjustment I had to make and it ended up working just fine.
"When I first heard the news about Molina, I knew that I wanted to still fight on a show of this magnitude. As far as fighting a southpaw, I've had so many amateur fights in my kickboxing career that I had no problem adjusting. It was just a matter of time. I also spar with great southpaws like Victor Ortiz throughout my career, so I was comfortable with the change in fighter.
Joe Goossen (Lipinets' Trainer): “You never know what to expect. You train for one style and then you get another. But I’ll certainly take the results, a second-round knockout. I really love that. We were warming up on that particular thing in the locker room so he was looking for it. A great fighter always executes what you ask him to do and he’s a great fighter. I expect him to be champion again one day, that’s for sure.”
"I got hit and I slipped, that made it look worse. When I stood up I thought I was fine and tried to raise my hands and show the referee.
"I feel good now and I was ready to fight. I'll be back and ready to put on a good performance."
