Marcus Davis: Dan Hardy is a ‘disrespectful punk’ whose face will be Swiss cheese at UFC 99
(mmamania.com)
“‘Hate’ is a very powerful word, I know…. But I hate my opponent at UFC 99. I hate Dan Hardy. I really can’t stand this guy and I am counting down to days to June 13, to the Lanxess Arena in when I can smash this kid in the mouth. I want to punch holes in this guy’s face. Hardy has gone so far beyond what is professional. This is more than another fight in the UFC for me, more than getting a win and working towards getting a title shot. This is war…. I’ve only met him maybe three times…. On none of these occasions did Hardy have the guts to say anything disrespectful to my face … like the little coward he is.

Ben Saunders ready to ‘whoop’ Mike Swicks ass with his ‘blades’ on June 13
(mmamania.com)
“I don’t believe his hand speed will be that big of a difference, especially with the lack of a reach advantage, which he has had in almost all his other fights. It means I can hit him without getting hit and close the distance easier than him. He needs to be worried about my blades. The clinch is only one aspect and not something I feel I have to get. People seem to think that because I used it so well in my last fight, that it’s my bread and butter. I love the clinch and feel very confident there, but it is by no means my best and only form of attack.

That is all," read the first post, followed up one hour later by, "Rumors are not true. I have no knowledge who or when."
