On How He Scored The Main Event
“Rashad. I mean, it was one of those fights that was so close that if it went either way I wouldn’t have, ‘Oh.’ I would have said what I said during the Woodley fight. I thought Woodley won that fight two rounds to one and I think Shields barely won the second round.”

On The Number Of Close Decisions
“There’s always interesting decisions in this sport it drives me crazy.”

On Miocic’s Upset Of Nelson
“I was surprised at how tired Roy was, but no [I wasn’t surprised]. Stipe is a good fighter, man. He’s nine and one, the kid is a talented heavyweight, he hit Roy with some big shots.”
