" : D " -Dana White, after Fedor lost.
"Congrats to Werdum for his amazing victory, he told the media he wants the belt so try to take it from me and fight me, rematch time!!!" -Alistair Overeem
"My #MMA mailbag is now on Yahoo! Sports http://yhoo.it/9aCBki" -Kevin Iole, called Fedor "Amateurish", and says he doesn't belong in the top 10 pfp.
"FOR THE RECORD: I have been reading reports that I have a broken eye socket, I did get xrays and I had nothing broken, but do have a pretty good black eye. I did get a few stitches too. Those are my only injuries from the fight... REGARDING THE REF of my fight. I thought she did a great job. I am glad she did not sto...p it earlier... I hope she is the ref for my next fight!" -Jan Finney
"LOL... I can not believe what they are writing... I have a black eye, couple stitches, and some bruises...I had worse injuries in fast pitch soft ball. They are making sound like I am in the ICU...I went to ER for xrays and it came back nothing broke. Its still funny how they call I tell them no bad injuries and they just write what they want...If you are not going to write what I tell you ...dont call and ask ???" -Jan Finney
"Just got the call ... I will be fighting in StrikeForce again very soon. Maybe a couple of months? Just like I like it no time to rest... just train!" -Jan Finney, hopefully, at her natural weightclass.
"boo hoo, you are really taking the loss hard! Even setting him up with easy fights doesn't work anymore. its over move on, I did." -Dana White, wasting his time replying to a random twitter trolls after Fedor lost.
