UFC 127 Pre-Fight Interviews: Penn vs. Fitch

Jon Fitch - "(BJ's) right hand is strong but it's not his technically superior hand. Everything he does is set up with a jab, so that's the hand. You can't give all your focus to that hand because he's still sneaking that uppercut and overhand right. But his jab and his hook is what he utilizes the most in his stand up."

B.J. Penn - "I'm definitely looking forward to this a lot. It's probably the biggest test of my career so far. It's going to be a barn burner."

Michael Bisping - "I'm looking to finish this fight. I'm looking to make an example of (Rivera). I want to make him pay for the criticisms he's made of me and mocking me a little bit. I want to make an example of him."

Jorge Rivera - "The average man will look at things as a blessing or a curse. The warrior takes everything as a challenge. That was written by Musashi. I love that quote, I think about that quote all day long. ... I'm looking to go out there and bang it out and see if I can do it. Even with all this against me. I'm still coming to do it. I love it. I'm dead serious, I love it."
