UFC Quick Quote: Joe Stevenson struck oil in his UFC 104 fight against Spencer Fisher

"Honestly, I though (the UFC) forced him to take the fight. Stylistically, I was like 'Really? Dude, are you serious? Alright, happy birthday!' I executed a lot of things right, but I felt like I couldn't get the takedown and I was making excuses, 'Man he feels slippery, he feels oiled up' and I felt like he was. But why even say anything like that, that's my fault for even taking it there. Yeah, he definitely put some lotion on this morning or last night took a bath. Something was different about him, maybe he had a lot of garlic though, that can make you slippery as well. Or it could just be in my head, that's why I [just] need to improve myself."

Joe Stevenson gives MMA Fanhouse the people's eyebrow when talking about the condition of opponent Spencer Fisher at UFC 104 last Saturday night from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. "Daddy" forced referee Herb Dean to stop the bout in the second round after "King" Fisher was busted open and taking too many undefended elbows. After the fight, the former TUF champ felt like Fisher added a little extra something to his training regimen that apparently had little impact on the outcome of the fight.
