UFC 140 entertainers shared their thoughts ahead of this weekend's action. The press conference featured Jon Jones, Lyoto Machida, Frank Mir, Nogueira brothers, and the newly-branded "The People's Champ" Tito Ortiz. UFC President Dana White hosted the press conference, answering on questions from fans and the media.
Here are some of the best quotes from the press conference, for more, please visit MMAMania.com.
Dana White: Jon Jones wants to take some time off after this fight. He's fought four times this year. He's gonna take some time off. The FOX fight in January will be Evans vs Davis. If Evans wins that fight, he'll get the next shot at the title. If he doesn't, we'll see.
Jon Jones: I know I'm not invincible and I've seen a lot of people end up losing. I want to never let that happen to me. The biggest part is training with Greg Jackson and I'm surrounded by some of the top fighters in the world. Diego Brandao and John Dodson just won the Ultimate Fighter and that's just the little guys. I'm four years into my MMA career and there's so much that I don't know. Jiu-jitsu, boxing, taekwondo, it's a whole culture. There's so much stuff that my teammates are way better than me at, but I'm so good at merging them all together. That keeps me aware of that I don't really know anything. That's what keeps aware, being at Greg Jackson's.
Tito Ortiz: It's not just in the Octagon, when it's fight time, I've got my poker face on. That bad boy's still there in the Octagon. When you fill yourself with hate, life becomes miserable. If you can accept what's in front of you, I believe that good things happen to good people when you do good things. Treat people the way you want to be treated.
