Tyron Woodley - "(Tarec Saffiedine) is well known for being a great kickboxer so my job is to neutralize what he does best while I do what I do best to get the victory. He baits guys in well and defends takedowns well so I need to set up my takedowns well with strikes. ...A lot of guys he's fought, he's defended the takedown once and his opponents haven't tried a second or third takedown on him. The guys that have, have taken him down. So, my plan is not to expect to pop him one time with a good penetration shot and get him off his feet, but to continue to work and grind. That's what we do best."
Daniel Cormier - "I know that (Devin Cole) is a wrestler and a strong guy with a lot of experience. It’s going to be my toughest fight to date, for sure. I think I’ve prepared well and trained hard so I feel confident."
Ovince St. Preux - "(Ron "Abongo" Humphrey) is a short, stocky guy so I’ll have some problems getting under him. I know that he punches and kicks a lot and he’s got good stand up. He’s fought some pretty tough guys like Mike Kyle and Brett Rogers. It’s one of those things where I’m just happy to be here and I’m going to put on a good show."
