FIGHTERS WEIGH-IN ON UFC 105: COUTURE VS VERA
"Wow matt brown is a stud!" -Jamie Varner, yes really good for breeding.
"Damn it if Dan Hardy & Lil' Wayne don't look like brothers!" -Renzo Gracie, are you sure you've gotten your eyes checked lately?
"Dan Hardy rubs me the wrong way but that fool can scrap. I still think GSP puts him away in the first round." -Jason High
"Sorry guys, I wish I could have performed better. I will be back. Thanks for the support... Thanks for the positive feedback guys!" -Mike Swick, after losing to Dan Hardy.
"UFC 105 overall was a solid card. Loved the Brown vs Wilks fight. Can't wait for WEC 44 this week and of course UFC 106." -Kenny Florian
"Ross Pearson did look tough last night" -Jake Rosholt
"Lets go Randy! ...Damn great body shot by vera... I love Randy but I think Vera won" -Brendan Schaub
"Wow I thought Vera won that fight!!!!!!!!!!! What is going on with the judges in Mma????????? ...For those of u that think u know fighting damage wins fights. Vera won the second dropped Randy in 2, close first but got mount and td in 3... Seriously I'm getting pissed... Holding a guy against the cage shouldn't win u a fight in the UFC. I love Randy but he lost.. Vera did more! ...these guys are acting like I dislike Randy! He is one of my favorite fighters and I wanted him to win I just feel bad for Vera he did well!" -Jamie Varner
"Damn, i know Handy gets the nod but I think Vera won." -Jason High
"Well what can I say, I'm so proud of Brandon as a student, it's to hard to explain. We've been going through 'A Process' and this is the next step of that 'Process' I guess. When we left the cage 16,000+ fans cheered for Brandon, the same 16K fans that didn't cheer for Brandon before the fight. Unanimous decision? I c...ouldn't believe it! Felt like I was up in county jail. thnks 4 the support everyone. Pacquia da MAN!" -Lloyd Irvin
"Welllllllllllll we all know who won that fight hummmmmm" -Kurt Pellegrino
"Down but not out. Back to training on monday." -Denis Kang, on losing to Michael Bisping.
"Pacquiao's "Eye of the Tiger" > Tyson Griffin's "Eye of the Tiger"" -Luke Thomas, true that.
"Cotto has the heart of a lion, Pacman the speed of a rabbit on crack. Very good fight to boths fighters." -Miguel Torres
"Speed vs Power? Pacquiao does it again! It time to bring on Floyd Mayweather.... Manny Pacquiao won his 7th title in seven weight divisions, a first in boxing history." -Renzo Gracie
"Wow PAC-man is a stud!" -Jamie Varner, maybe he should meet up with Matt Brown.
"If more boxing matches were like Cotto/Pacquiao boxing would be more popular. Hopefully it doesn't take 2yrs to see Floyd/Manny." -Jason High
"Pacquiao's baby right hook is the prettiest punch in all of combat sports. The timing and precision to land that consistently is insane. ...Cotto = gameness. Pac's speed, feints & diversity of punches is 2 much for anyone out there right now. Roach created a lil' monster." -Kenny Florian
"Wow pac is the man! Unbelievable!" -Frankie Edgar
"I just watched it. Pacman is a fucking legend. He may be the best boxer ever." -Joe Rogan
"Jake, the worst damage you did was give me staph, zit covered leg humper." -Mayhem Miller
"@mayhemmiller I'm on to bigger & better fights like always. I mean ur last real win was when you beat up your girlfriend and got arrested" -Jake Sheilds, oh, damn it gets even more personal.. why would you bring this up? (he did get acquitted though.. kinda left that one out huh?)
"Dad is getting weird. I think he may be growing a new pet under his neck. He'd better not die before I get to play with it." -Gator (Mayhem's Dog)
