"(Ronaldo Souza) will have no choice but to stand. That’s what I plan on doing. I’m forcing him to stand and seeing how good his standup is."

"(Robbie Lawler has been training with Ryan Bader, Aaron Simpson and C.B. Dollaway) They’re just big guys, athletic, good wrestlers and guys who are hungry and who are all bigger than me. Just drilling with guys who were All-American wrestlers, guys who implement that into their game plan, just working out with those guys has made me get better by leaps and bounds."

"I believe if anyone stands, it’s just a matter of time before I catch them. Two guys, one guy not wanting to give up the belt and one guy going in there to take the belt. It’s going to be a battle."
