On Scoring The Main Event:
"All of his [Henderson] fights are controversial, half think he won, half think the other one won. I had it three rounds to two for Ben Henderson and the second round was one of those wishy-washy rounds."
On Daniel Cormier's Win:
"He definitely won dominantly and I think people were booing because he was playing it safe. He played it safe, knew he could hold him up against the fence, work him over there and Frank Mir wasn't doing anything over exciting to get out of trouble and try to win the fight."
On Josh Thomson's Knockout Of Nate Diaz:
"He looked good tonight. He came in absolutely implemented his game plan, didn't get shaken when - you know the Diaz brothers like to slap and chase you around and taunt you, he didn't fall into that and he did what nobody's done in the UFC and stopped Nate Diaz."
