UFC Quick Quote: Krzysztof Soszynski preparing for a bloody war against Stephan Bonnar on Feb. 21
I’m not expecting to go into this fight and win this fight in the first or second round. Most likely this is going to be a brutal fight, a lot of blood everywhere on both sides. I know he’s going to come out very aggressive. I mean his job could be on the line with him losing his last two fights. He’s going to be preparing 100 percent, be aggressive and come out firing to finish this fight.

Rolles Gracie's UFC Debut Was "Embarrassing"
And according to cousin Renzo Gracie, it really wasn't due to training, injuries, etc. but actually nerves. Fact is the nerves drained him of his energy. His stand up and ground work looked bad, nothing at all like he was doing in training leading up to the fight and it was if he couldn't hear what I was telling him. I think the pressure he put on himself overwhelmed him. He'll learn and be back." Rolles Gracie was TKO'd by Joey Beltran at UFC 109.

UFC Quick Quote: Goran Reljic is going to show the doctors they were wrong at UFC 110
Doctors actually told me I'll never fight again, but I love to prove people wrong and now I'm back. I can't wait to step inside and fight again. I said to them, 'I'm going to show you who's not going to be capable of coming back to the sport. I'm going to show you that you're wrong.' I said (that) to them in their face. I told them I'm going to prove you wrong and that's what I did. Look where I am now. I'm coming back. I feel great. I have a heart.
Joe Lauzon becoming an athlete under the tutelage of BJ Penn and Marv Marinovich
It’s been GREAT training. I have only been around for a couple weeks but I can see why BJ has looked so great in his last few fights. Marv and Gary Marinovich are on top of things here. On top of all the great stuff I have learned to do from Marv and Gary… I have really learned a lot of things NOT to do. Apparently I am not much of an athlete, because I do pretty much every activity with the worst form they have ever seen.
