"I felt comfortable in there before the cut," said Pablo Cesar Cano. "We worked hard. It was a good thing that he came out and threw a lot of punches because I took advantage of it. If he wants the rematch, he can get it any time."
"I feel very well," said Ruslan Madiev. "I wanted to take it slow in the first few rounds and then start to apply more pressure. It was an unfortunate head-butt."

"This is for my mom," said Franchon Crews. "This is the first time, but I know her will and determination wasn' stronger than mine. There were some rough areas in there, but it's a learning curve and we did everything we could. It seems so much more real. If you believe in yourself, go for it."
"Truly, from I don't know what round, I found that I'm too light for this division now," said Maricela Cornejo."The push downs made my back completely cramp up. I couldn't move. I couldn't release my jabs because my back was cramped. It was like I was frozen. And if I did jab they were weak. It's an excuse, but I tried to get something out and I couldn't get anything out. She's known for pushing down opponents, so I expected it, but I didn't think she was going to be as heavy as she was."
