UFC Quick Quote: Hulk smash Eddie Sanchez

ÂÂ

I've watched his (Sanchez) fights and he's tough, but everyone wants to win and no one wants to lose, so at the end of the day, we'll see because I'm not training to lose. I want the belt, that's why I've come to the best team, Team Quest, and I think they can get me there. I've got the talent, I've got the skill and I'm coming down in weight to 265, so I think I'm fast and I'm sharp as well. It's easy to cut down to 265. I'm not a 205 pounder trying to get into 265, coming up a weight, so me coming down is gonna be a tough time for any of the heavyweights I fight. They've got to knock me out or they're gonna have big problems if I'm coming in fit and strong. And training with Team Quest, I'm gonna come in 150% and well-conditioned.

Hard-hitting Australian heavyweight and UFC newcomer Soa Palelei (8-1) talks to UFC.com about his upcoming battle with fellow rising star Eddie Sanchez (7-1) at UFC 79: "Nemesis" on December 29 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
