"I did what I wanted to do" - Phil Davis' persistence pays off as he continues his climb up the light-heavyweight ladder with a win over legend Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Scores were 30-27 across the board. "I knew he was tough, and he’s resilient," said Davis, who admitted to dealing with "all types of injuries" in the training camp leading up to the bout.

- Anthony Johnson: "Deep down inside, I wanted to finish the fight. But in reality, I just needed to win. ...I knew I could bang with him; that was no problem. But I knew his weakness was his wrestling."
