Post-Fight Press Conference Notes:
According to UFC president Dana White, 16,091 fans packed the arena, garnering a live gate of $1.27 million.
White said Benson Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez is set, but Pettis is next.
White, “Rampage just walked out and screamed ‘You’re gonna miss me!’” I said, “I already do.”
Lamas said he will be watching next week’s featherweight fight against champ Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar in person. He wants next and White likes that he’s requesting it.
Pettis wasn’t worried about ring rust. It only affects you if you think about it.
White says Grant’s win breaks him into top 10. He’s got big fights coming.
