Robbie Lawler on playing second fiddle in the Conor McGregor circus:
"It's just business as usual. If I had to carry the show, I would do that. I'm just gonna go out there and be me and get in Rory's face and get a knockout. I don't really concentrate on the promotion as much. I'm just gonna be me and hopefully the crowd loves it."
Rory MacDonald on losing to "Ruthless" in 2013:
"It re-motivated me. It just lit the fire again. Sometimes the fire goes out a bit, it sparked the flame and now I'm feeling good and hungry. My coaches get a second look at how our two styles match up and figure out better methods, that's the only difference."
