UFC Fight Night 24 Pre-Fight Interviews: Nogueira, Davis, Hardy, JohnsonPosted on March 26, 2011, 05:24 PM by Joey Santosus
Tonight's headliners, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Phil "Mr. Wonderful" Davis, discuss the importance of tonight's match-up, as well as their gameplan for the bout. "Lil' Nog" says he was disappointed when Tito Ortiz pulled out of the fight, but also considers Davis a high level Light Heavyweight. Davis, on the other hand, admits that this fight came a little sooner than he wanted to get back in the octagon, but says it was a great opportunity and he is ready to go.
Welterweights Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy and Anthony "Rumble" Johnson, who will go head to head in tonight's co-main event, discuss one another, as well as what they are expecting in tonight's match-up. Hardy explains his outlook on the bout, which he feels is do or die in terms of keeping his spot on the Roster. Johnson, meanwhile, is confident heading into the fight, and says anything the Brit can do, he can do better.
