I dont think he said the 'fight in a heartbeat' comments due to it not being a reality at that point. I think he said it out of confidence at that time and rightly so. He knew he is one the best MMA fighters in the world and has all the physical tools to fight any style. What really bothers me is that when it became a reality he chose a cowardly path and went back on them words especially fighting a unprepared MW disadvantaged Sonnen.
