UFC on Fox 4 Post-Fight Interviews: Fighters weigh in on epic main cardPosted on August 5, 2012, 01:50 PM by Mike Drahota
In a series of post-fight interviews from FuelTV.com, UFC on Fox 4's main fighters weigh in on the epic night of fights from Los Angeles. The man who will face either Jon Jones or Dan Henderson in his next fight describes his emphatic knockout of Ryan Bader. Lyoto Machida said he waited for Ryan Bader to come in with the right hand, and knew he was out, evident by how he stopped fighting. Machida appears super motivated to regain his title.
Shogun Rua spoke of his brutal win against a surprisingly tough Brandon Vera in a knockdown brawl. Shogun focused on training harder to come into his next bout with more endurance. Rua stated he always looks for the knockout no matter what. Shogun said he was not upset with Machida getting the title shot.
Brandon Vera came to his interview very emotional, which was understandable. He took the loss hard, but he should take pride that he participated in one of the most exciting fights in a long time. It was also one that came at the perfect time for the UFC. Vera expresses his belief that his career is not over by a longshot.
Finally, Lightweight Joe Lauzon spoke of his war with Jamie Varner, another back-and-forth brawl that featured alot of skill from both fighters. Lauzon said his gameplan to continually push the pace, while Varner had broken his hand while attempting to throw a punch. Joe Lauzon was humble in victory while talking his very effective fight-ending Triangle choke in the third round.
