NOT SO SEXY MCCORKLE
"To answer a lot of you with 1 tweet, the pressure got to me, and I choked. Felt like I couldn't breathe the minute the fight started" -Sean McCorkle
"Also, I thought the stoppage was early, but probably wouldn't have made a difference anyway. Congrats to Stefan... Oh, lastly, all my haters on here, I'm way better, cooler, better looking, and funnier than any of you. I've not yet begun to talk trash" -Sean McCorkle, I disagree.
"Seemed like I was in his league for the first 3 1/2 minutes of the fight. Doesn't matter though, you're not in my league. I win, you lose" -Sean McCorkle

"@StefanStruve My pride will never allow me to follow anyone, but if I ever change my mind you'll be my first. Thanks for the cake... PS the video of your coach in the hotel room still haunts my dreams" -Sean McCorkle
"BTW to all my haters on here: When you post lame stuff like "you suck" etc I don't read it or care. I'm somebody you're nobody. That is all" -Sean McCorkle, he senses it when you tweet stuff like "you suck", but he doesn't read it at all. I swear. He doesn't.
"Everyone always asks me why I don't follow anyone on twitter. It's because I'm only interested in my life. I don't care about who Tom Cruise is pretending to be straight with this month or what Snookie thinks about anything. I'm kinda into me" -Sean McCorkle, sigh.
