"I train 8 months for this fight, very very hard. I only training jiu-jitsu. I have very big surprise for everybody." - Fabricio Werdum
"He's obviously entitled to his opinion, but we're disappointed that Benji is trying to take away from what was such a great fight," said Smith's manager, Mike Roberts of MMA Inc.
"At this point, we're moving on and are completely focused on Scott's June 6 fight with Nick Diaz."
The Smith camp on Radach's decision to appeal.
"Well, if I beat Serra -- and I obviously think I will -- and Thiago wins I'd love to get a rematch with Thiago. I think that fight could have gone differently if my knee hadn't gone out, so I'd love to rematch Thiago."
"To be honest, I didn't like the way the last GSP fight went either, so I'd love to rematch GSP. But all I'm worrying about right now is Matt Serra. So where ever winning that fight puts me is fine, but I've just got Matt Serra on my mind right now."
"I think that a lot of people realize that he was only 1-1, he had a .500 record in the UFC when he got a title shot…. I know at the end I’m going to be able to get a hold of him. There’s going to be a day of reckoning. So he’ll have to answer to me personally. There’s going to be no reporters or nobody to protect him…. Three or four years from now, if I decide to switch over into full time coaching, I would like to coach Brock. I see a lot of things that he’s done in his last couple of fights that I think are mistakes that are not really his fault, they’re maybe his trainer’s faults. How can he be so talented, an NCAA champion, probably one of the best wrestlers to come out of college in the heavyweight division, and still make some of the real basic balancing and footwork mistakes that he’s making right now?"
"I think [MMA is] here to stay. I think it’s here to keep existing. I think in a hundred years from now it will be interesting to see how variegated their experience is. But I believe there’s room for both, and that both are going to continue to exist and both are going to produce stars. And you know, I used to think of this in terms of "I like boxing because it’s better." But now I think of it in terms of "I like boxing because it’s boxing" – and some people like MMA because it’s MMA. It’s no better and no worse, it is what it is. And I think there’s room in the cultural marketplace for both." - Jim Lampley on Toro Magazine
