UFC 142 went down tonight from Rio de Janeiro’s HSBC Arena. In the main event featherweight weight champion Jose Aldo put his belt on the line against the undefeated Team Alpha Male product, Chad Mendes and with one second left in the first round knocked out the Sacramento resident to retain his title.

In the co-main event Vitor Belfort earned his moniker “The Phenom” and took the fight straight to Anthony Johnson. Winning the fight on the feet and taking his opponent out on the ground with an eventual rear naked choke to win the contest in the first frame of action.

Here is what the fighter’s had to say about their performances tonight:

"I was so overcome with emotion that I wanted to celebrate with my people.” This will be what seperates him and Anderson Silva in Brzail. The moment he ran out the cage is the moment Brazil made the emotional connection.

“I’m not a judge. I didn’t stop the fight. All I know is that he hit me and it sent a shock of pain through my body unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I don’t know if the shots were legal. I just know it was unlike anything I’ve ever felt.”

Silva has some serious power, not that we didn't know that already.

Stupid excuses 101:

ANTHONY JOHNSON:

“A loss is a loss. My legs just got really tired. I didn’t get beat up in there and he really didn’t hurt me with what he hit me with. I just got tired. I’ve got to figure this thing out.”

He didn't get beat up, he just got choked out and was forced to tap.

CARLO PRATER:

“I’m not a judge. I didn’t stop the fight. All I know is that he hit me and it sent a shock of pain through my body unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I don’t know if the shots were legal. I just know it was unlike anything I’ve ever felt.”

I call BS, he just got hammer fisted to the side of the head.

It was posted just for you Bubbles

I actually enjoyed comments from all the fighters.

Anyone know if they've been doing this for awhile?

I'll head back after every event if they keep doing these.
