MMA Quick Quote: Herschel Walker contemplates April 2010 return
"I’m going get back into the gym and say I’d love to have another fight, and I’m gonna work hard, but I’m leaving it my trainers and coaches’ hands and the fighters at the gym. If they think I’m not ready, they gotta tell me, and I will swallow my pride and not do it. I want to know that I’m still the Herschel of -- that 47-year-old that’s got a 25-year-old way of doing things. If I have lost that, then I don’t think I’ll fight again. My thing is go out and perform at the highest of levels. I’m not there to be a circus act. I want to be a pure fighter."

Phan is proud of his Vietnamese heritage, and he takes equal pride in helping to guide the youth that live in his predominantly Asian-American neighborhood.

Rory Markham Is Going To Stand His Ground, Puff Out His Chest And Throw Down Against Nate Diaz
In other words, he's going to fight Nate Diaz like Nate Diaz. ""I think it’s a very interesting match-up. I like the kid’s style. I think we can definitely relate to each other – we stand our ground, puff out our chest, and like to throw down in there. He likes to play the heel, and that’s fine with me. No one’s going to take me out of my game. I try to fight without emotion, even though my style is very angry. "

UFC 109's Mac Danzig: If I don't beat Justin Buchholz, I don't belong in the UFC
Where in the world did Mac Danzig go? "The Ultimate Fighter 6" winner was on the scene one day in Las Vegas, training with the world's best, a UFC contract in hand. Then, he was gone. Danzig, 30, said he disappeared for three months and got fat. Fat for a lightweight, that is, at 183 pounds. He didn't train. He didn't run. He didn't watch fights. Nothing. Never mind how you get fat as a vegan (answer: Trader Joe's vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and soy ice cream); he hadn't taken off that much time since he got in the game almost nine years ago.
