"Honestly, I’ll stand with him until he hits me and then I will stand with him some more and then he’s going to be like, ‘What’s happening?’ And then I’m going to take him down. Then I will keep putting him on the ground and he’s going to try to get up and then I’m going to take him back down and I’m going to hit him. He’s not going to know where I’m coming from and he’s not going to know what happened. And then he’s going to know the fights over. I [know what] I really want to do in my heart, that I’m going to do and I can’t say it, but it’s going to be bad." -Joe Stevenson giving one of the worst quotes of the year to FightHype.

UFC 99 Preview: Spencer Fisher interview with PRO MMA (audio) "I feel great I feel as though I am 100% this time and I am going to go out there and going to try and knock Caol Uno out."
