UFC 191: Post-Fight Press Conference Highlights



September 5, 2015. Las Vegas, Nevada.

FOTN: Liniker vs. Rivera POTN: A. Johnson & R. Pennington

Post-Press Conference Notes:

  • Ross Pearson gets the first Q. Pearson believes this was his best performance and wants to rest immediately, but hopes to get back to work soon. Pearson brings up his record and blames his losses on getting a little reckless and praises the patience he made for getting the win tonight.
  • Anthony Johnson is asked about the comments he made to the front row press: “Media, writer a report on that s***.” Johnson stated that he wishes the media would focus on positive topics.
  • Van Zant believes she needs some time to be on the same type of level as Ronda, but enjoys the comparisons and views them as compliments.
  • Dodson states he had more success in the first fight. Dodson states Demetrious improved a whole lot and wants to make another title run.


Quote of the Night: Dana White (White was asked about the whispering comments he made to McGregor during the Go Big conference):

“I told him that his zipper was down. Everybody thought I told him to calm down, I just told him his zipper was down.”

Demetrious Johnson: “For me I don’t let it get to me emotionally (Dodson’s comments about Johnson being a boring fighter,) that fights behind me. and now it’s time to the next one.”

“I’m not going to take time off. I’ve had conversations with Dana White about bantamweight.”

Ross Pearson: “I just want to improve my career and get to the top man.” “I kept my head together and stayed focus. I didn’t just want to go in there and get caught, it’s happened before in the past. It was hard to become more patient, but it was the smart move to make”

Paige Van Zant: “I don’t think a lot of the girls in the division are used to the pace that I face.”

Dana White: “She puts Mighty Mouse pressure on them. She’s definitely green and shes young, but she’s scrappy and she wins” White’s comments on Paige Van Zant. “Before she (Holly Homes,) was signed, people were screaming for us to make a Rousey/Homes fight.” “Sh’es got the height and the reach” White’s comments on Holly Homes.

John Dodson: I can’t blame the loss on anything else that happened this week, like the birth of my child. I had a tremendous week”

Ladies Fight Night 7: “Double Trouble” Preview



Polish women’s federation Ladies Fight Night is going to celebrate their second birthday this year on the 15th to 17th of December. Two days, two events with a lot of great bouts.

LFN in Poland is being titled the new Invicta FC. The Polish owners created this federation to give European women a chance to fight on a big platform.

Hosting their first ever event in December 2015, LFN will hold two great cards next week, that will feature women who have fought under many prestigious promotions, such as the UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Glory, and Kunlun.

Two days of fantastic fights, intensified by a double dose of sports impressions. The name is not accidental, LFN 7 / LFN 8 combines two events, during which the best Polish fighters will be shown, as well as the best fighters from Europe (including France, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic and Romania)

The stakes are high, and we are electrified by the clashes between warriors such as Żaneta Cieśla vs Silvia La Notte and Patricia Axling vs. Cindy Silvestri. Mainly due to their vastness of their experience in the cage.

In the fight of the evening, the talented Romanian Cristina Stanciu will face Magdaléna Šormovádo. Stanciu fought twice in the UFC, but she was unfortunately cut from the promotion after suffering consecutive losses to Cortney Casey and Maryna Moroz.

Judyta Rymarzak vs Marta Waliczek is an amazing fight between two experienced kickboxers. Both making their pro MMA debuts on the night, we will witness a one-of-a-kind duel between two kickboxing perfectionists, as they look to transcend their skills into the MMA world.
