Dan Hardy:
I’m thankful for my health and quality of life, my girl and my family. I’m thankful to be a part of the UFC and all of the fans that support me. Oh, and to Carlos for the wakeup call to get my s— together and refocus on training.

Stephane Vigneault:
I am thankful Cain Velasquez took the belt from Brock.

Robin Black:
I am thankful for the UFC, Georges St. Pierre, [UFC President] Dana White and stuff making people so hungry for MMA in Canada that I can work in the media and make a half-decent living in the sport that I love. I am thankful that I am a bantamweight, so I never have to get smashed by Lesnar or elasquez or Carwin. I am thankful I don’t have gross staph and that the paralysis in my face from a bad punch went away after four months.

Erik Paulson:
I’m thankful for big seats in first class on American Airlines. Also, I’m thankful for our freedom thanks to our troops. God bless … Hoorah! And I’m thankful for one more thing: living on Earth in the best of times the entire human race has ever experienced. Think about it. We have the best of everything and are as spoiled as s—! Be truly gracious for your great life, as many others were never so fortunate as we. Say “thank you” and smile!

Mike Whitehead:
