Quoteworthy:

You don't become a legend by winning decisions. That's what fans want to see, that's what gets you bonuses, that's what feeds my family. I've seen a lot of fighters stay in the UFC with losing records because they were such exciting fighters who put it on line. I think that's what fans pay to see, want to see and relate to. On any given day, I'm going to bring the best game I possibly have. At least I can say, 'Win or lose, I did the best I could. What else I could have done?' That allows me to sleep at night.

Former TUF star Nate Quarry discusses his upcoming middleweight bout against "Crazy" Tim Credeur at UFC Fight Night 19 from the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on Sept. 16. "The Rock" will be out to notch his second straight win inside the Octagon after bouncing Jason MacDonald out of the promotion via TKO at UFC 97 back in April. It was his third win in four attempts since returning from major back surgery. The power-puncher hasn't been to a decision since Kalib Starnes' Parkour-inspired performance at UFC 83 -- and makes no qualms about putting it all on the line once again next Wednesday.
