On Nate Marquardt:
"Nate has a couple of holes but I'm not going to point them out because he's my only friend in this business. So for the next guy, you're going to have to study the film because I'm not going to give it away. But I stuck with it. We did some things out there that we noticed he had some problems with."
"On the way over here (to the fight) I told my uncle, I hope I get on top of Marquardt one time. I left the hotel to come to this fight at 207 pounds. I told my uncle if I could get on top of this guy one time, he's going to be exhausted. I'm a heavyweight right now."
On Anderson Silva: (at the 2:20 min mark)
"As soon as Anderson tries to punch me, I'm going to stick my forehead in his chest, run him against the fence, pick him up, put him on the canvas and that's the end of that round. As soon as Anderson tries to kick me, I'm going to stick my forehead in his chest, run him into that fence, put him on the ground, that's the end of that round."
"I am five strike attempts by him away from being the UFC champion."
