"In my humble opinion, I thought I won all the rounds. I thought I won it pretty unanimously. That's all I can say. I thought I won it."

"I think that the crowd has a big part to play in the judges' opinion sometimes. Also, he caught me with a real slick knee up against the cage that made me bleed real bad. I would assume the blood could have swayed the judges as well."

"It felt like the same fight almost. He's still quick. He still had a lot of good pace. He still threw a lot of good stuff. I think he was a little more cautious this time. He didn't go as crazy this time on a lot of his striking, but that kind of plays to my advantage a little bit, in my opinion, just because I make good reads as the fight goes on, and I get stronger and stronger as the fight goes on, as well."

"I'm a little disappointed I didn't the finish. I was really looking for it. I landed a lot of shots that I felt like should have finished him, but he's tough. You've got to give it to him... All these guys that I get in there with, they're tough. The 135-pound division is stacked. We've got some of the best fighters in the world, and none of them are going to go down easy."

--WEC Bantamweight Champ, Dominick Cruz (16-1) says he is a bit surprised that the judges were split in scoring the decision. For what it's worth, Fight Metric also scored all five rounds in favor of the #1 ranked Bantamweight.
