Lyle "Fancy Pants’’ Beerbohm - "My ultimate goal is to become STRIKEFORCE world champion but my immediate goal is to get my hand raised and beat Pat Healy.
"My time has come and I am really looking forward to the fight. l want that title shot.’’
Carlo Prater - "This is going to be a great fight. Travers is a tough and durable and I know I need to be at my best. I’ve trained very hard. I want to make a statement and be around a long time.
"I want Travers to be at his best so when I win, I can say I beat him at his best.’’
Lee Higgins - "I can’t and won’t allow myself to get caught up in the hype of fighting a fighter with a very famous last name. Sure, there is extra motivation but I am not going to put any more pressure on myself.
"So, I have to treat this as just another fight. Besides, I’m fighting Ryan, not Randy. I’ve watched his tapes and broken them down. I’m ready to fight the fight. There is no pressure. If anything, the pressure is on Ryan.
