"I'm so sorry I lost the fight – to all my fans – but I don't want to go out that way," Pellegrino today told MMAjunkie.com).

"I want to fight in December. If I can fight in December, that will give me enough time to go through the surgery, to heal my leg and get ready to fight."

"If you watch the fight, he knocks me down. As he jumps on top of me, he pushed me over my leg, and you can see me holding my left knee as he was punching me in the face.

"I have no idea how I was able to fight through that – just by the grace of God and the will to where I tell people I'll never tap. I think it was just that will that kept me going."

"I was completely healed from my injury; the doctors all cleared me, and I was ready to go. That's why I fought. George completely, 100 percent won the fight. If I didn't get knocked down, I wouldn't have re-tore my meniscus. But I got knocked down, so that was a credit to George and a discredit to me."

"I will not keep my head down for too long. I used that retirement for motivation, but there's still huge fights for me in the UFC. I'm looking to have a big fight, win the big fight, and get right back into the title picture."

"Kenny (Florian) is one of my heroes, and when he lost for the title against B.J., he went and fought Gomi in his next fight. That put him right back into it. I would like to follow the same footsteps as my mentor."

I'm glad he's not retiring. That was an awesome fight, especially impressive knowing that he tore his knee. The last few seconds he came very close to stopping the fight, too.
I'm a Pellegrino fan!

i find it a bit strange that he keeps going around saying he doesn't tap, yet 3 of his 5 losses come from tapout

i fuckin love the 'he won the fight 100%' statements, right behind that saying 'but if i hadn't blah blah blah'

reminds me of 'no offense but' then say something offensive...

verbal diarrhea dude. and you might try asking for the 'big' fight after winning, not losing. ROFL

"I'm a huge [insert fighter name] fan but I feel he's a piece of shit and was completely dominated 100% in that fight and the judges made the right horrible decision and like I said I'm a big fan but I hope [insert name] dies very very soon"

Looks like he doesn't make any excuses at all, which is refreshing!

look, George owned him, but thats nothing to retire over, George is one of the best up and coming prospects in 155, theres no shame in losing to him.

You can't EXPECT a big fight AFTER you lose.

This isn't Strikeforce, Kurt.

 Unless you lost fighting for the title or were already in contention.

Florian's fight after BJ was against Guida, not Gomi.

Sorry if this seems like nitpicking, but, "just by the grace of God and the will to where I tell people I'll never tap", sounds a little odd coming from someone who tapped out to Drew Fickett and Nate Diaz.

That said, I hope that Batman comes back well in his next fight.

Not a Pellegrino fan at all, now that I got that out of the way I still think he puts on an exciting fight.

Glad to hear that hes not out and i hope to see him fight again soon.

I think a fight between him and Randy Couture would be cool.

Batman vs Capt America.

just kidding.

War Pellegrino
