Anthony Ferguson had a lot to say at the press conference:
"I saw Amir Sadollah, and I know that he was a pretty big guy from 'The Ultimate Fighter. I think that would be a pretty good little start, right there.
"It doesn't matter who you put in front of me. I have great coaches and I'm going to be ready for any kind of fight. It took me a bit to get used to being in front of everybody, but I think I belong here - and I've got the trophy now to prove it.
"I knew he (Nijem) was expecting me to go for a takedown on him. That's what we were practicing. I've always had hands, but I kind of forgot that I was a wrestler. As you saw on my first fight in the house, I got taken down twice. I knew he was going to put a lot of pressure on me, so I took that inside. I had my takedowns to try and slow it down a little more. He caught me a couple times and I had to shake it off.
"Lightweight is in my future. Wherever Dana wants me to fight. I wrestled in college at 165. But I'm comfortable where I'm at right now. I like food. I like eating. I could see myself going to lightweight, but I love welterweight."
