"I got a lot of family that lives here also, so I’ll have a lot of family that will come down and watch me fight. I’m excited about that, it’s like fighting in your home town away from my hometown. Have you missed Michigan? Well, I don’t miss the winters, the winters are horrible sometimes for me but the spring and fall are absolutely beautiful, you couldn’t beat it."
Butterbean currently resides in Alabama.
