[UPDATES] via @Mike_Fagan_13:
- Shogun Rua: Biggest change I had to make was finding guys with his body type. They have a similar style.
- Shogun: The timing was perfect to make the change though.
- Shogun: I don't think Rashad ran from the fight.
- Shogun: I think Rashad tries to stall, play safer. Jones looks to finish.
- Shogun: I know Jones as a fighter, not a person. So I can't comment on any sort of change in personality.
- Shogun: It doesn't bother me that Jones is the favorite. He's won fights decisively. He's fighting in his hometown.
- Jon Jones: I don't find the attention as a distraction. I'm enjoying the ride. It's a dream come true.
- Jones: I meditate a lot on victory.
- Jones: I'm sure Shogun poops like I poop.
- Jones: I absolutely expect the home crowd advantage.
- Jones: I want to show people that, despite where you're from, you can do anything if you put your mind and heart into it.
- Jones: I think everything happens for a reason. I think I might have a feeling of "I was just here yesterday" when I step in the cage.
- Urijah Faber: I've been pretty decorated, but fighting in the UFC is the biggest of them all.
- Dana White: It's a dream for fighters to fight in Madison Square Garden.
- White: When you look at the guys Shogun has beat, it's a pretty distinguished list. He's one of the nastiest guys who's ever fought in MMA.
