It doesn’t matter who would do it. Like, if you really want to fight then we go one on one. This is not a fighting game. This is not a game to be against someone, it’s about competing and winning games. … He needs to respect the game. If you don’t respect the game and if you don’t respect us, then that’s going to happen. Because he’s doing it to us.”
