Post-Fight Quotes From FUEL Post-Fight Show:

Jim Miller: “It doesn’t happen often, but I got knocked down. Melvin is an animal. Melvin hit me hard, the hardest I’ve ever gotten hit.”

Melvin Guillard: “I think I fought the perfect fight. I knocked him down. He caught my back and it’s ironic because I’ve been working on back escapes. I could tell I hurt him and he didn’t want to be in there with me at one point. I need to work harder on my Jiu-Jitsu. That’s why I’m working with the Blackzilians.”

Josh Neer: “I felt my legs wobble a little bit. I was able to get the take down and get the submission. I think my mental game has changed. Try to get on top and defend the takedown a little more. I’m trying to get to the top just like anyone else.”

Duane Ludwig: “I got caught. I just hesitated for a second and he got the choke out. He was getting popped up a little bit and then lost his mouthpiece to get a breather.”

Pat Barry: “I’m not going to cut my hair until I submit someone. I might become Clay Guida.”
