WHAT? YOU GUYS DON'T WANT TO SEE HUGHES-ST.PIERRE IV, V, AND VI?
"I don’t have any problems with Koscheck or Swick. They’re just guys who want to beat someone who has been in the sport for awhile, to beat someone who has held the belt." - Former UFC welterweight champ Matt Hughes (Heavy.com)
"There are plenty of older guys out there with big names who can fight, too." - Hughes, like Carlos Newton, Dave Menne, and Renato Verissimo, right?
"I like to take fights where I’ve got something to win. If I take a fight against Mike Swick or Josh Kosheck, I’ve really got nothing to gain from that fight besides a paycheck and beating somebody up." - Hughes. Who are you going to fight then?
"Royce Gracie was a big fight, you know? It was a huge name, a guy that had won the old tournaments in the beginning." - Hughes
"Those are the kinds of fights that gets me into the gym ready to train and work." - Hughes.
THIS WEEK IN HEAVYWEIGHT SUICIDE WATCH
"I was very, very disturbed after the loss to Dos Santos." - Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic, commenting on his loss to Junior dos Santos at UFC 103. (Fighters Only)
"I was in such a state that I wished to hang myself in my hotel room so I would be gone." - Filipovic. Someone needs to make sure Mirko and Andrei Arlovski do not get within 50 feet of one another.
"I am seriously thinking about hiring a psychiatrist to help me out. I have already made some calls about it." - Filipovic. Probably a good idea.
"If someone offered me millions of dollars to quit my career right now I would not accept it. [Fighting] is my life and I don’t know any other way to live." - Filipovic. What about the fishing trip?
I BELIEVE IN RESPECT BY DISRESPECTING YOU
"I feel like I have paid my dues and so have a lot of fighters waiting for their shot." - Heavyweight contender Shane Carwin, who's set to face Brock Lesnar at UFC 106. (Five Ounces of Pain)
"Brock is what they call a ‘Draw,’ he sells tickets, I am what they call a ‘Fighter,’ I fight who I am told to fight the way my coaches train me too." - Carwin, who will find out the hard way that Brock Lesnar is also a "fighter".
"To me this sport is as much about respect and honor as it is paychecks sound bites." - Carwin. Please live up to this ideal and stop giving interviews.
"The only thing Coleman is afraid of when it comes to Tito is contracting swine flu from that dirty ass d-bag." - Mark Coleman's trainer Mike DiSabato, defending Coleman after comments were made by Tito Ortiz. Coleman pulled out of their UFC 106 bout. (Fighters Only)
"We all know where he lays his head down at night." - DiSabato.
"Tito wants to get personal with a legend? OK, let's get personal - we can all go to our porn collections and watch what Tito sleeps with night after night." - DiSabato. Unfortunately, there's such a disconnect between Jenna now and Jenna then, that it really ruins the whole process.
"I don't remember being pissed about the Kimbo stoppage." - UFC President Dana White (Bloody Elbow)
"Then Roy jumps up and looks at me like 'What the [expletive] Dana?' Like I'm up I'm over there telling the ref, 'Don't stop this fight'. Like I have input or something. That was my first beginning of getting [expletive] irritated with Roy Nelson." - White, not Jared Shaw.
"Then he runs over and asks me to go get him a [expletive] Whopper. That was my second starting to get [expletive] irrated with Roy Nelson." - White, walking a line dangerously close to Brock Lesnar's Bud Light fiasco.
"It looked like a couple of high school kids, a barroom brawl. The fat biker dude took his vest off and put ranch dressing on his (chest)." - UFC Heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar, commenting on the Kimbo-Roy Nelson fight. I have Lesnar actually watching the fight at +350. (Yahoo)
"I was never a Fedor fan. ...He is just another man to me. I'm just going to go in there and I'm going to smash him." - Brett Rogers, good luck with that.
'The UFC only has like three top lightweights: Gray Maynard, BJ Penn and Frankie Edgar, so this way I can fight most of the top fighters in the world outside of the UFC." - Jorge Masvidal. (Tapology)
"Is there anyone better than me? For sure, but we don’t know where he is." - UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva. (Fighters Only)
"Do you know who I am? I will kill you and rape your family." - Junie Browning, everyone. (Las Vegas Review-Journal)
