MMA Quick Quote: Scott Smith pulls a rabbit out of his butt against Benji Radach

"There was about honestly three times when I thought the fight was over. I was out when I pulled his leg. I was rocked. I saw him about three different times. I didn't know what I was doing ... I just pulled it out of my butt. My kids are here and I could not let them down.... He absolutely picked me a part as you can see in the first two rounds, but I'm always dangerous.... I just said [to myself] that I owe it to the fans and everyone out there to lay it absolutely on the line and I did. I was fortunate enough tonight to land the "Hands of Steel" right across his face.... I got hurt in this fight -- I got hurt really bad. I had some coaches who helped me pull through ... I've got to thank my masseuse, Tom Atencio, thank you very much."

-- Scott "Hands of Steel" Smith talks about his thrilling come-from-behind knockout win over Benji Radach at Strikeforce: "Shamrock vs. Diaz." Smith was getting schooled for three rounds before out of nowhere he dropped another magical right hand right on the button of the "Razor" to put him down for the count. After the awesome performance, he thanked several people for helping him prepare for the middleweight brawl, including his masseuse, Tom Atencio. Weird.
