Nicco Montano: “They literally wanted me to put on a costume. They literally wanted to see me coming out with war paint on my face.”
Darren Till nutritionist: “Under the circumstances we’re doing amazing. The last part of the cut is always going to suck.”
Rafael dos Anjos: “If Till does not make weight and the fight happens, I think he’ll have a little advantage over Tyron. But I think that weight cut will be brutal on him.”
Gray Maynard: “I want to see every guy in here make enough money to retire and do good. It’s a hard f@$%ing sport.”
Valentina Shevchenko: “You cannot be relaxed, not one time. Never. It doesn’t matter what kind of opponent you have in front of you.”
Trevor Wittman: “She doesn’t leave her house. It’s still there. She doesn’t go in public places.”
Michael Bisping: “He says, ‘Go on motherf@$%er. Swing a shot. By the time you swing on me, I’ll have hit you in the face six, seven times.”
Robin Black: “Before we could talk about technique, we talk about passion and he was as intense as they come.”
Conor McGregor: “I always say, it depends on what fights are available, I think, for Conor. As I said, if there is another big super fight and Conor feels like he would enjoy it, then he’ll do it.”
Sage Northcutt: “Guys or friends of mine, for example Rory MacDonald, people that fought for the UFC like Machida, they’re making double if not triple what they were making fighting for the UFC.”
Javier Mendez: “So those are the things, the unknown things that the fans don’t know and they don’t understand and they don’t care to hear either.”
Jon Jones: “Leading into our fourth fight, a possible fourth fight for the heavyweight championship of the world, his confidence won’t be in the right spot.”
Flash Entertainment CEO John Lickrish: “After almost 10 years the time was right to exit that investment.”
Andres Quintana: “Besides, it’s to qualify for the $100,000 tournament. So, I look at this fight, and all the work, as an investment in myself. I just have to get past this fight.”
Tyron Woodley: “Those are three different weight classes that I could fight in and be extremely competitive in all of them.”
