I All-American wrestling defense to get him off my legs, but this is my second specialist in a row. It would be silly for me to take him down and try to submit him. I went out there and did what I needed to do. For me, the exciting part was that he’s won seven fights in a row, he’s been able to take down all of his opponents, he’s been able to get on 90-percent of their backs. He didn’t take me down one time, he didn’t even come close. I wasn’t breathing hard the end of the fight, I feel amazing. I was satisfied with my performance; not everyone is going to understand what is taking place in there. It’s a chess match and I won it convincingly.rdquo;

Ricardo Lamas steamrolled through prospect Jason Knight with a flurry of big winging punches before finishing him at 4:34 of the first round by TKO. It seemed like Knight, who is very confident off his back, thought he could eat punches long enough or until he dropped, where he would be able to survive because of his grappling. But Lamas kept unloading with big shots and when Knight finally fell the referee was forced to jump in and stop the fight.

THEY SAID IT:
Ricardo Lamas: “ I wasn’t surprised he didn’t go down sooner. I knew he had heart, I’ve seen him fight before. I know that kid keeps coming no matter what you throw at him. I had to keep going, I saw it in his eyes that he wasn’t there and I had to stay on him. I approach every fight the same. I don’t get involved emotionally in the fight. This is all business for me, I’m an athlete and I come to perform and you have to have a clear mind to do that. This was a really long, hard camp for me being away from my kid. I hated every second of it, so the next thing for me is going to be concentrating on opening my UFC Gym in Naperville, Ill. As soon as I get that settled, we’ll see about the fighting.rdquo;

Aljamain Sterling: “I made a mental mistake and timed a kick wrong in the first round and he was able to capitalize, he’s a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, he’s a former world champion and his resume speaks for itself. I overcame adversity, I picked it up in the second and third round in a big way and I felt him break in there in the second round when I had him on his back. My shots landed and I felt the steam deflating out of him. Cody Garbrandt has said I’m overrated and Bryan Caraway keeps running away from me. I want a fight with one of them. rdquo;

THEY SAID IT:
Brian Ortega: “It felt good to be back. I’m not going to lie, I felt a little bit nervous. I had a year layoff and I’ve been watching the featherweight rankings change. Guys are going up and down, there are new guys in the division and I was thinking that since I’d been gone for a year I hadn’t been training as hard as the other professional athletes in the top-10. I put in a hard four months once I was fully recovered and I felt that was enough and it was tonight. His heart surprised me. He’s got heart and he’s got a good poker face. A lot of people that I’ve fought I can see them, through their eyes, they give out and this guy looked like he was on fire all night. I kept telling myself not to be fooled and that he was more tired than I was. He took me down and I took advantage of it.”

I had a great camp and I’m glad I got the job done. I had to check my weight, but I know that opportunity waits for no one. When the UFC calls, you have to answer. I’m really glad we took the fight and made the best of it, because here we are now. That was on short notice, I want someone higher in the rankings next. Imagine what I can do on a full camp.rdquo;

Jarred Brooks: “I think the takedowns I got were the difference. I really had Octagon jitters. I said that it wasn’t going to happen, but it was for real. The UFC jitters are for real and just the process of everything is crazy. My next time out fans will see a lot more striking and a lot more versatility out of me. Eric is a hell of an opponent; he’s a future contender just like myself and hopefully we’ll meet again someday for a belt. I’m probably thinking Magomed Bibulatov or Ben Nguyen are next.”
