Cruz on The Weight Difference in McGregor vs. Diaz: “It worked to Nate’s advantage. He could take the punches. But the extra weight made Conor tired.”


Tate on her fifth round victory: “I went in there with a mindset that one way or another, it’s not going to a decision.”


Los Angeles – The following quotes and videos are from tonight’s FS1 UFC 196 POSTFIGHT SHOW on FS1 hosted by Jay Glazer, with Dominick Cruz, Frankie Edgar and Brian Stann providing analysis. Ariel Helwani conducted interviews.


FOX UFC analyst Brian Stann on UFC 196: “Two come from behind wins tonight. It just proves you can look at all the tape and you think you know what will happen. But you just don’t know.”


Stann on the turning point in the McGregor vs. Diaz fight: “Nate Diaz started slow. The big question was how does Conor get inside the reach? It looked like Conor was waiting on the jab. Then, Diaz found his range and as he got bloody, he threw caution to wind and landed a combination and rocked him. When fight got to the ground, he got the choke. Nate has experience. He’s fought everyone. Conor punched himself out in round one. Nate started slow, and then picked it up.”


FOX UFC analyst Dominick Cruz on the difference the extra weight made in the fight: “The difference in the fight was the weight. It worked to Nate’s advantage – he was a little heavier and could take the punches. And he had power in his punches that was hurting Conor. But the extra weight made Conor tired, he’s a real featherweight. Conor’s power wasn’t enough at the higher weight.”


FOX UFC analyst Frankie Edgar on what’s next for McGregor: “I’m assuming he has no other choice but to come back down and defend his featherweight title and I’m waiting him. I know Aldo is vying for the rematch. He had his chance. Conor beat Aldo in 13 seconds. I’m coming for it and I’m getting my belt. There’s an unknown with me. I’m going to be bothering these guys. I want this fight.”


Nate Diaz on what he thought about fighting Conor: “Nothing surprised me, but I wasn’t getting training camp, that straight punch usually doesn’t hit me. I knew I was going to start slow and pick up as I go. My plan was to not use anything in the first round and pick up. It’s surprising I got hit, I shouldn’t get hit.”


Diaz on coming into the fight on short notice: “On my worst day I’ll train two hours. I don’t have hobbies. I’m always eating. I’ll have a day when I eat junk food and then go train the next day. I train harder than most guys. I’m a martial artist. Even if you can’t win, you should be able to not die. I had to do what I had to do. I put in a lot of time. Everything I have, I worked for.”


Diaz on what he used to get the win: “Cardio and skill. How long have I been in the game? I’ve been fighting 12 years. He’s where he’s at because of the push. I know I’m a better fighter than him. It’s hard to hate. The guy’s doing a good job. That was my 24th fight. There’s no experience like that. It’s a long road and I’m still going strong. I’ll say I’m done with this fight game, but in four months, I’ll be bored and will want to fight again. I’m in this game.”


Diaz on if he wants to fight Robbie Lawler next: “The biggest fights I can get, that’s what I’m going to take. Money talks, we’ll see what happens.
