They Said That – Verbal Jambalaya

Full of Garbage
“Anybody who accepts that [UFC fighters are overpaid] as a reality of the sport is sad and pathetic. I hope this isn’t the reality of the sport. If it is, I should probably go do something else, like empty trash cans. I’d make more money than I do now.” —Tim Kennedy on GrappleTalk Podcast

In the Immortal Words of…
“If I go in there the best I can be, I know I’d destroy GSP. When I come in against GSP, I’m going in to take the belt from him, I’m not going to play around with the world title on the line. I’m 110 percent confident, if I show up at my best, he does not stand a chance in hell against me.” —Matt Brown to bleacherreport.com

Prodigious Penn
“In my opinion, BJ Penn is number one [greatest fighter of all time].” —Anderson Silva on the pre-UFC 162 media conference call

No Reason to Worry
“I can’t worry about the belt. It’s really not my position to decide whether I keep it—because I’ve been injured—or whether Dana [White] takes it or whether[Renan] Barao has it. The belt is there. The bottom line is me getting healthy so I can go out there and do what I do best, which is prove why I am where I am today. I’m not here by accident.” —Dominick Cruz to MMA Prime

No Prize for 2nd
“They [Bellator] are never going to be as good as us. This is what we do 24 hours a day, seven days a week…That’s the difference between us and everybody else. Nobody’s ever going to outwork us or outhustle us. That’s just never going to happen. It’s impossible.” —Dana White to mmajunkie.com
