Law and Disorder

—Eddie Alvarez to The MMA Hour on being sued by Bellator over contract disputes.
“It was a fun fight to be in, that only makes me a sick-o.”
—Jim Miller at the post-UFC 155 press conference on his fight with Joe Lauzon.
“Gameplan? I have a gameplan, I have a great gameplan. My gameplan is just to knock his head off. That’s the gameplan. No, I don’t have a gameplan, I don’t have any strategies. I just try to make myself better. So, the better I am at fighting, the more he’s gonna get hurt.”
—Mark Hunt to Fuel TV Australia on his upcoming bout against Stefan Struve.
