The following quotes are from tonight’s FOX SPORTS LIVE UFC FIGHT NIGHT: MACHIDA VS. DOLLAWAY postfight coverage on FOX SPORTS 1. The show was hosted by Jay Glazer, with Kenny Florian and Gilbert Melendez as analysts.
UFC on FOX analyst Kenny Florian on Lyoto Machida’s devastating kick to score a TKO victory over CB Dollaway: “It was one of the quickest fights of Lyoto Machida’s career. He caught him right under the ribs where it’s very sensitive and it takes the wind and the fight completely out of you.”
UFC on FOX analyst Gilbert Melendez on Renan Barao’s victory over Mitch Gagnon: “In the third round, Barao started picking up the pace and putting on the pressure. Gagnon was breaking and Barao set up the arm triangle. It’s the return of Barao. It was a great performance.”
Rampage Jackson on resigning with the UFC: “The contract with Bellator wasn’t right. My manager and I tried to fix it. Bellator didn’t want to fix it. They had 45 days, and I terminated the contract.”
