"I’m not going to get in there and get frozen watching all the beautiful stuff he throws. I’m going to get in there and just mix it up." - Rashad Evans
I didn't think that one was special enough to be the front page quote in the first place but that's just me. Rashad had his time so let's move on to a new one. There's plenty of good quotes to choose from and I figured this little post could be a place for us to submit ideas for something new.
I like the classic quotes, which could stay up for a while like the Joe Frazier " I want to hit him, step away and watch him hurt. I want his heart.". But I also like the approach of a quote that is relevant to an upcoming fight, like the Rashad one.
Here's one of each to get things started...
"Getting hit motivates me. It makes me punish the guy more. A fighter takes a punch, hits back with three punches." -Roberto Duran
“To be honest with you, I really don’t like to hurt my opponents; this just happens to be our job. But if somebody disrespects me they will pay for it. I promise.” -Anderson Silva
And in a perfect world we could use this Mike Tyson quote - "I'm scared every time I go into the ring, but it's how you handle it. What you have to do is plant your feet, bite down on your mouthpiece and say 'let's go'."
and switch up one word for another, throw in some caps and we get - "I'm scared every time I go into the ring, but it's how you handle it. What you have to do is plant your feet, bite down on your mouthpiece and say 'LETS MUTHERFUKERS'."
What say you, BE ?
