"I will beat the sh*t out of John Hathaway. Let's face it; the fight that he had with Diego (Sanchez) wasn't an awesome, back-and-forth fight. Diego's a small, somewhat average (sized) [155-pound fighter]."
"I'm a big welterweight, I'm a long welterweight. He’s fought a lot of shorter opponents. He's had a reach advantage, and he's been able to use that really well. He stayed away from actually having to get in a fight with [Diego]."
"It's not an, 'Oh my god, if I don't get (John Hathaway) down, there's nothing I can do (situation)’. I could knock the kid out. I almost knocked out the last dude. This kid's going to be in for hell. I ain't Diego Sanchez. His last fight was a good and easy fight. This time, he's in for the fight of his life."
"I can't wait for (the British fans) to boo me. I'm going to suck it all up and spit it right back out at all them crooked-teethed Englishmen."
