"It really wasn't an exciting fight. Everybody hyped it up to be. For (Melvin Guillard) calling me out, saying he's going to knock me the f*ck out in the first round, I would have rather had that happen, instead of him really not trying to engage with me."-- Watch Jeremy Stephens' post-fight video blog after the jump.
"I was trying to put he pressure, trying to engage. I've never really seen Melvin fight like that; where he is just moving around the whole time. I thought we were just going to go to war, but it is what it is."
"I would have loved to put on a show for the fans, but you can't make the other guy fight. I'd rather of him come at me like he does everybody else. I was chasing him around the whole damn time, he was in and out, but what the f*ck, we're not fighting. Why not go out and put on a f*cking war and get knocked out."
