Dana White: A subdued White took the mic during the presser and was visibly disappointed in the performance his former light heavyweight champs put on in the night’s featured contest.
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson: Admitted ring rust played a major factor in his return and requested a rematch multiple times after the fight. He also said he normally performs well under pressure, however the A-Team movie supplied an inordinate amount of heat. Rampage added that FOX threatened to sue him if he lost the fight.
One thing that didn’t get lost in translation was when he said that “Rashad can still kiss my ass.”
Rashad Evans: Was happy with the win, but clearly disappointed he couldn’t finish Rampage. In addition, it was the second straight fight he had well in hand, however manged to get into deep trouble in the final round.
