UFC Post-Fight quotes from Sacremento

By Gary Herman & Erik Sommers (octagon side)

Dana White

“I didn’t know that he lost a point”

“I don’t know about the other Noguiera”

“Barnett was released from his contract.”

“I am very confident that we’ll have an HBO deal very soon.”

“Would like to make the Wanderlei Silva vs Chuck Liddell for September”

“Gurgel and Surata was fight of the night”

“They will not fight other opponents before the rematch (Rashad and Tito)

“We need a TV deal to get Pride going. Japan and the US both”

“Hayato Sakurai is joining the UFC. We’re ready as soon as he is. He’ll fight at 170.”

“When we bought Pride, we were going to put on events. We have to get this thing straightened. They have contracts and they need to fight.”

“This is the most exciting sport in the world. This will be the biggest sport in the world.”

“Lytle had submission of the night.”

“Cro Cop said if he beats Cheik Congo he wants Noguiera”

“BJ Penn is next for Sherk. In November”

“Hope to have Fedor fighting in the UFC at the end of 2007 or early 2008”

“Henderson vs Rampage will be for both belts. It is a unification bout. Undisputed champ.”

“Shogun will be in the UFC in Anaheim.”

“I thought Henderson would want to be a middleweight, but he wants to be a light heavyweight.”

“I thought that Tito was going to win the fight”

“We have to see a rematch between Tito and Rashad. It was a good fight. If it went five rounds, it would have been very interesting”

“Noguiera is one of the best fighters in the world. We’re going to put him in with someone very exciting”

“Tito probably didn’t want to spend any quality time with me”

“We’ll come back to Sacramento. Sometime in 2008”

“I thought Nogueria was great. His stand-up was awesome. He got a little too comfortable and took a kick to the face. Herring had a chance to finish it but didn’t”

“Silva is a killer. Marquardt is very good, but Silva came down strong.”

“Franklin will be his next fight. October in Cincinnatti”

Anderson Silva

“I trained very hard. I thank my training partners.”

“I’d rather the fight Franklin be in Vegas at a neutral spot, but I’ll take the fight wherever it is.”

Hermes Franca

“He took me down too many times. I had him at the stand-up. I’m going to come back and fight again. I’m not really impressed with Sherk’s performance”

Rashad Evans

“I thought I won the fight.”

“He was just what I expected. I knew he would come out strong and then fade.”

Heath Herring

“I thought the referee was going to stop the fight”

Sean Sherk

“Bring it on. I’ll fight Florian again”

“I wanted to finish the fight.”

“I’m fine with fighting BJ Penn. I’ll take on anyone they put in the cage. Penn is not a surprise”


Antonio “Minotauro” Nogueira

“He’s a very tough opponent. I have a lot of heart. I could come back”

“I felt different in the cage than the ring. It was strange being close to the cage. It was exciting.”

“My next goal is fight for the belt.”

Hayato Sakurai

“I want to fight Matt Hughes in the future.”

Tito Ortiz

“I hope the next fight is in Vegas. It was a great fight. Rashad fought an awesome fight. I think the decision was (unfair). “

“He’s going to make me train harder for the next fight.”

“I hope me and Rashad will do it again”

“It was fair to take the point away. McCarthy is the best referee in the business.”

“I was fully aware that the point was deducted.”

“I defended the shot well, but I just reacted. “
