"I think he's the same old Rashad, which is very dangerous, very skilled. He's definitely gotten better over the years but I think he's the same old guy."
"The problem is that we're both known for excellent wrestling, but only one of us actually has it. So, I'm thinking about using the wrestling and mixing it up and doing what I can."
"There is no point in my career where I plan on abandoning my wrestling. It's always a part of my game plan. It's who I am. It's my strong suit. That is something that I am going into fight making my opponent respect."
"I definitely want to sharpen up my wrestling, so it looks crisp ... and my striking. Rashad Evans is a pretty good striker and I want to be prepared for that. And lastly I gotta stay strong in jiu-jitsu because the fight will go there and I can't let Rashad stand back up."
"How good is Rashad's jiu-jitsu on his back? I don't know but we'll find out."
"I like Rashad as a person, he's a family man, he's a good guy."
