"Troy just loves life too much. I'm not saying he's not tough and strong, but technically he is no genius on the ground and fitness wise, he is not even in the same league as me. It has been 18 months since his last fight; that's a long time for any fighter, never mind one who perhaps doesn't train as hard as he should. I have heard that he put a lot of weight on and spent a lot of time chilling on the beach.... I know he trains with BJ Penn, but his jiu-jitsu is nowhere near black-belt level. I am better than him in every single area of this fight.... I don't care about submissions. If I see the chance for an arm-bar or a rear naked choke, I am going to let it pass. It's not that I don't care about my submissions, but I feel like I have to redeem myself after my last fight.... The UFC is the holy grail of MMA and it needs exciting fighters, nothing else: fighters who leave all they have in the ring and go crazy for as long as they can.... Troy is going to have the worst night of his life because this fight means more to me than any other."
-- Welterweight Paul Kelly is holding down his own blog at UK.EuroSport.Yahoo.com as he prepares to take on Troy Mandaloniz at UFC 95: "Sanchez vs. Stevenson" from The O2 Arena on London, England, on Feb. 21. "Tellys" reveals that he has a new baby for which he needs to provide, as well as some pent up anger after his most recent loss to Marcus Davis, which he plans to take out on the Hawaiian. His goal is to put on a show for the fans ... even if it means he passes up a fight-ending submission. Hopefully, in his zeal to put on a memorable performance Kelly doesn't miss out on a win bonus. Memories don't buy diapers ... at least in the short term.
