This is the first time all of my kids have been here to watch me fight, I’m happy I got to share this with them. It’s definitely an emotional night and it’s definitely a possibility that this was my last time in the Octagon. We’ll see what happens from here.”

UFC 199: Rockhold vs Bisping 2 FS1 prelims

They said it:
Brian Ortega: “I don’t know why I tend to be a slow starter, I have to pull the inner me out. I’m really emotional right now, I’ve been going through a lot lately. My friend died, I almost died – this really means a lot to me and I don’t know how to put it into words.”



Beneil Dariush defeats James Vick


Dariush knocks Vick down with a big left hook and mounts for some ground and pound but Vick survives only to get knocked out minutes later.

Beneil Dariush: “That win was about a lot of things. It was about being redeemed. I had been feeling stagnant and I’ve been praying for something to change and God gave me that something. I hope it’s not anger; I hope it’s spirit. I train with a lot of spirit and hopefully that’s just transitioning into the Octagon as well. I don’t care who’s next, I don’t care about rankings; just keep throwing them at me and I’ll fight them all.”

They said it:
Jessica Andrade: “I felt great. I think I am in the proper weight class now, I feel strong and confident and I am sure that 115-pounds is the place for me. I guess that a win over Jessica Penne should put me in the top-10. I felt very strong and I feel that this was my best fight in the UFC. I was very focused during this camp because I knew my opponent was very tough. I was supposed to fight Carla Esparza on the May 29 card, but she didn’t want to fight me. I want her on the next Brazil card!”



Alex Caceres defeats Cole Miller


Alex Caceres def. Cole Miller via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27)

Alex Caceres: “I want to be a hero for the future; for my children and my children’s children. To do that, I have to embrace my dreams. We’re given a new opportunity every day and it is our responsibility to take it. I know a lot of people thought I was crazy for taking the fight on short notice, but it’s not short notice when you train every day. This is my job and I love it. I don’t care who, when or where I fight next, but I hope it’s soon and I’m going to enjoy it.”
Cole Miller: “Guys not going to the ground with me is a product of what I’ve already done and accomplished. They respect and fear my ground game so they all just stand and bang with me – that’s what Max Holloway did and it’s what Alex did tonight. The armbar wasn’t close, it was locked in but I couldn’t get a good angle on it – it was a good escape though.”

Tom Breese: “I thought I landed the cleaner, harder shots. I have to go back and watch it again. Coming off of a loss, I need to get back in the gym and improve my skills and then get back in there and move on.”

They said it:
Henrique da Silva: “I got knocked down in the second, but I was able to get full guard and was able to sweep him. From there, I just started pounding until the fight was over. We were both tired, so I knew it was going to end before the bell. Whoever I fight next, I want to get a proper knockout while we’re standing up. That’s not how I wanted to win and it’s not how I’ve been performing lately, but Jonathan is a tough guy.”



Kevin Casey vs Elvis Mutapcic ruled a draw
Kevin Casey and Elvis Mutapcic fight scored a draw. (29-28, 28-29, 28-28)

Casey earns takedowns and maintains control in top position for much of Round 1, without inflicting any damage. Casey gets his second takedown in Round 2. Mutapcic is active in the third in the clinch and the fight ends in a split draw.



They said it:
Elvis Mutapcic: “I knew he was going to be motivated. Muhammed Ali is the greatest of all time and that’s his father-in-law. I feel like Kevin had a little more to prove because he married into the family and he was going to want to make a statement. I knew it was going to be rough at first and that I’d have to pick it up in the second. I was a little too eager and he did a good job of not giving me any space. He did a lot of damage in the first, but he didn’t do any in the second or third. I’d like to get back in there as soon as possible, I feel like I’m a better fighter when I stay active. I want CM Punk, he’s sitting on his butt and taking my money and I don’t feel like he’s done anything to deserve to be signed by the UFC. I want to separate the contenders from the pretenders and he’s a pretender.”



Polo Reyes defeats “Maestro” Dong Hyun Kim


Kim and Reyes exchange blows on the feet for all of Round 1, earning loud applause from The Forum fans throughout. Much of the same in Round 2, with each fighter barely surviving at multiple points. Reyes finally ends the war with a knockout punch in the final round.
