MMA Quick Quote: Reality Bites


"This sport is about winning. The reason why everybody is on the Patriots' jock right now is because they're undefeated. Everybody is on the Dallas Cowboys' jock because they only got one loss. People like winners, and that's what happened with Hughes and Penn and how they got their success. My most famous fights are the ones I lost, the ones against Hughes and St. Pierre. Those fights are the reasons why people know me, but I lost those fights. Well, people can't get behind a loser, so for me to get the same type of popularity here at HDNet Fights, (the plan) is to keep winning."
