They Said That
“FEG [Fighting and Entertainment Group] has a lot of outstanding liabilities, a lot of unpaid bills, so maybe mine is just going to be put underneath the stack of the other bills. They have a lot of debt.”
—Alistair Overeem to MMAFighting.com on not being paid for winning the 2010 K-1 Grand Prix.
A REAL TOMCAT
“Truth. UFC 139. Expect Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Zombies, Magnum P.I., the cast of Cats, or any combination of the above to show up.”
—Tom Lawlor on Twitter regarding his upcoming entrance costume.
“Every time I win a title somewhere, Dana has to buy the company to get me back.”
—Dan Henderson at the UFC 139 press conference.
KEEP IT STANDING
“BJJ would be terrible for a zombie invasion. Imagine pulling guard on a flesh eater.”
—American Kickboxing Academy’s BJJ coach Dave Camarillo on Twitter.
THE DALEY SHOW
I just think Lorenzo Fertitta is a real cool guy. It is funny how the real guy, the guy with the money, the real boss behind the scenes, is the coolest guy, and the front man [Dana White] can be a bit of a problem.”
—UFC castaway Paul Daley to fiveknuckles.com.
“I do get frustrated when I hear people say that Anderson Silva’s wiped out the middleweight division. He hasn’t wiped out the middleweight division—he hasn’t fought me yet.”
—Michael Bisping to MMAMania.com.
