Quoteworthy:

"On tape? It's like, Ah, I'm gonna pick him apart. But when you get in there, it's a little bit different. All kinds of stuff coming from weird angles, he's a tough kid. I heard (his shoulder) pop a couple of times, I was like 'Hey it's poppin'.' I guess I could have tweaked it a little harder but he did a good job. He's a tough kid, a warrior. It was a tough fight."

Undefeated lightweight "Bully" Gray Maynard reflects on his Sept. 16 victory over departing star Roger Huerta. "El Matador" was caught in a painful submission that was one tweak away from joining Razak Al-Hassan on the list of most gruesome UFC Fight Night injuries on record. However, Huerta survived the attempt and got back to his feet with nary a grimace. He may not have any fights left inside the Octagon, but he certainly gave fans something to remember him by.
