"Just yelled at Fedor that I liked his sweater. He didn't understand until I grabbed it and gave the thumbs up." -Mayhem Miller, on the sweater of doom.
"Wrapped and ready :) http://twitpic.com/op0z3" -Jake Shields
"This hatin' ass audience. Shut the fuck up! Why do u never hear boos in boxing? Now that shit is boring." -Jason High
"Sorry bout that monkeys, didn't train hard enough, wasn't prepared to grapple that much. poop." -Mayhem Miller, obviously showed better standup, but got out worked on the ground en-route to a decision loss.
"Thx everyone Was trying to be the first to sub him.Sorry I couldn't finish.He is one tuf dude. Respect to Miller. http://twitpic.com/oq3rh" -Jake Shields, showing off his new bling.

"What did ya'll think of that fight with Fedor and Rogers. Wow!! That was and exciting fight to watch!" -Roger Huerta
"As for the fedor fight, I thought it was very interesting, but I thought Rogers hesitated, and I felt like Fedor got exposed a bit... Mark my words: Alistair Overeem is going to give Fedor mad problems if they fight" -Joe Rogan, Fedor gets "exposed" all the time.. what's new?
"I love to watch Fedor fight because he looks to be in danger but always wins. And of course... Vicious and violent finishes." -Joe Lauzon, Fedor is never in trouble, he is just playing possum!
"All the "Fedor isn't the best PFP" talk needs 2 stop. I fart in yr general direction. Its abt consistency people... For real tho, A. Silva, St Pierre have only been that consistent in recent years. That's 31 for Fedor, stop HATING... Give it up to Brett Roger tho, that fool gave it up! Awesome, I thought it'd be by submission! See, if Sokodjou had Rogers' attitude well..." -Jason High
