“Americans have a rivalry with Brazilians, that is obvious. And why is that? It’s because the UFC has 300 fighters under contract, and from those 300 fighters, the Brazilians are 50, and we have more belts than they do. If you’re going to fight an American in the United States, you have to win the fight with emphasis. You can’t win it by a thin margin.”
—Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira to Globo TV.
MASTER OF HIS DOMAIN
—Chael Sonnen via Twitter.
“I don’t give a shit what the Culinary Union thinks. I mean, these guys are focused on what’s going on in MMA instead of their culinary workers. I think it’s a joke. It’s all an attack on the Fertittas… Culinary Union, I don’t give a shit what you guys think or do. You don’t matter to me in any shape, way, or form.”
—Dana White to mmafighting.com.
“I think it is a performance enhancing drug. A lot of Brazilian guys use marijuana before they train. A lot of American jiu-jitsu guys use it before they train. And they don’t do it because it hurts them, they do it because it helps them.”
—Joe Rogan on The MMA Hour.
HAIL TO THE CHIEF
“When I go to a strip club, I don’t make it rain, I make it hail. That is why I keep a $100 of nickels in my car at all times.”
—Miguel Torres on Twitter.
WORK OF ART
“I’m gonna ride my UFC wave as far as I can take it, because I’m in love with it, and eventually, a couple years down the road, I’ll be a full-time artist.”
—Brittney Palmer on The MMA2Day Show.
