Quoteworthy:

"Rodrigo did the show with Frank Mir and told me it's a good thing to do, that there my life will be divided into pre-TUF and pro-TUF, that will be clear in my life. I was really stoked! It's the fight that came about to prove, once and for all, that I deserve a shot at the belt. I have to be calm, prudent, and fight him intelligently. I have to keep on my toes not to let myself fall into his game. I feel that's part of it and I'll even like it. If I understand what he says, I may even have a comeback for him! Truth is, whatever happens in the house will be settled in the octagon, that's for sure!"

Brawny Brazilian bomber Junior dos Santos, who surrendered his number one contender spot to coach opposite former champion Brock Lesnar on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13, wants to prove "once and for all" that he is the true number one contender to the UFC heavyweight title, currently being held hostage by the surgically repaired Cain Velasquez. Was this a risky move for "Cigano?" Or does it display the kind of fighting spirit that many fighters lack in the "business" era of mixed martial arts?
