- Cyborg: I think tonight I made the UFC happy to work with me.

- Cyborg said she’s willing to fly to Australia to fight Megan Anderson.

- Maia said he wasn't retiring.

- Maia said if he had more time to train he would've came to USA to do training.

- Woodley: Fans want to see blood and back-and-forth exchanges. I felt like I stuck to the gameplan. I still have the belt around my waist.

- Tyron Woodley on Georges St-Pierre: "He doesn't want to fight me because I'm a better version of him.

- Woodley: I fought four world title fights against the No. 1 contenders. Has (middleweight champion) Michael Bisping ever fought a No. 1 contender?

- Woodley on GSP: If he doesn't fight me, by default I will be the best welterweight of all times.

- Woodley on the report of GSP vs Bisping: I have no reaction to that.

- White: Tonight, in my opinion, Jon Jones looked like he hadn't taken any time off and hadn't missed a beat. He was incredible.

- White: The reality of Jones-Lesnar happening soon is not a reality. Still has six months of USADA suspension.

- White: GSP is fighting Michael Bisping. Because I know Bisping will fight. I’m gonna give it to him.

- White: Tonight is trending over a million buys. It was one of the best cards we’ve ever done.

- White: Cormier didn't know he got knocked out and said it was stopped prematurely. When he saw the replay, then he knew he got KO'ed.

- White: Seems like Holly Holm is interested in fighting Cyborg.

- White: Whoever wins between GSP and Bisping, Whittaker will fight the winner.

- Jones: I’ve always felt that way about DC. I’ve always felt like he’s a pretty classy guy. Model champion. A guy to be respected.

- Jones: The thing with Lesnar got serious really quick.

- Jones: My team said you could beat Brock. You’ll have to dig deep, but you can do this.

- Jones: Conor McGregor has been a tremendous inspiration to me. He’s shown me these huge paydays are possible.

- Jones: I think Brock has a limited game. I think it’s a winnable fight.
