"I’m feeling the pure ecstasy of having a war ... A lot of UFC fighters, we dream about going in there and finishing a fight in the first round. But it’s the fights like I had tonight that when you’re an old man you’re like, 'Yeah, yeah, that was a war'.
"You get to call up Martin Kampmann when were like 65 and be like, 'remember when we threw those hooks in the ring?' Those are the wars and the one’s you don’t forget. Whether you’re cut or your hurt ... you don’t forget these no matter what, and they’re fun.
"The whole fight was, ‘It’s going to land, it’s going to land, it’s going to land.’ I was planning on landing that right hook and dropping him. 'It’s going to land, it’s going to land.’ It landed a couple of times but he didn’t drop.
"When it all comes down to it I kind of threw the game plan out the window and made it a street fight, and that’s what I did honestly."
"My plans are to eat green chill chicken chiladas ... hitting the gym ... running my mountains. I promise I’m going to have a very fast recovery.
"Jesus Christ is going to heal me. I’m going to be back in the Octagon soon."
