- Dominick Cruz stated his mind was 100% in the fight.
- Cody Garbrandt welcomed any bantamweight challenger.
Amanda Nunes on the punches she threw at Ronda Rousey in their less than a minute championship bout:
“The whole time, I knew it was going to be like this. And I knew if I had the chance in the beginning, like if she would give me the opportunity, I could finish her. I know the girls can’t take my punches. I knew she was going to strike with me because her boxing coach told her she has good striking.”
Cody Gabrandt discussing the stellar fight he had with Cruz:
“I was living in the moment. I was having fun out there and enjoying it. It was a great fight and I had so much fun in there. But he’s a great sh*t talker, he knows a lot of good words. He speaks well, sh*t I couldn’t read till I was in the third grade. I barely graduated high school. So I knew what I was getting into with him. I knew I had to stick to my game plan and I knew it’d take over.”
TJ Dillashaw’s response to the online claims that he’s been knocked out by Cody Garbrandt when they trained together:
“It’s definitely false. I mean they’re not going to put anything out cause I’ve never been knocked out. The closest I’ve been knocked out is when John Dodson hit me on the Ultimate Fighter Finale and it got stopped. My lights weren’t out but that’s the closest I’ve been to being knocked out.”
Dominick Cruz’s exchange with a media member:
Media: Dominick, obviously a tough night for you tonight.
Cruz: What was tough about it?
M: Walking away with the loss of course.
C: Loss is part of life. If you don’t have loss, you don’t grow. This isn’t tough, this is life.
Dominick Cruz discussing his loss and what defines a champion:
“I’ve been fighting the best guys in the world for the best ten years. I’ve been on the pound for pound list for a long time. Even when I was hurt with triple ACL reconstructive surgeries, there was a target on my back and I had to come back and fight through it. This was no different. This was just another fight that I had to challenge myself. I knew that he was going to be good. I said that leading into it. And that’s what it is when you’re a champion. Somebody else has the target on their back now. I get to chase the target for once. That’s how it goes, and it’s okay.”
