UFC 118 Post-Fight Press Conference

(Now who’s the princess??)

Wow! We had a few pick-ems and a few surprises tonight at UFC 118, but overall it was a great card.

BJ didn’t have an answer for "The Answer" and Couture had a simple, yet effective one for "Lights Out," namely, take him down and expose his weaknesses on the ground.

Love him or hate him, Gray Maynard proved he is the number one lightweight contender and we might just see him walk away from his next bout wearing UFC gold.

Anyone who didn’t like this card is either a boxing fan or a BJ Penn fan.

Here’s the post-fight press conference after the jump.

Anyone else man enough to admit that, after 118, they're just a tiny bit gay for Couture like me?

James Toney looked like a half-sucked milk dud Couture spit into a pile in the corner of the cage.

I had a hard time hating Toney, but only because he didn't speak English...I couldnt understand almost anything he said. I understood "Pris-es" but only because he had a visual aid that cued me to "Princess."

Frankie E has BJs number, and there's nothing BJ can do about it. BJ is a much more exciting fighter and it will be a shame watching GM and FE lay on eachother.

I would prefer to watch Nate Diaz and BJ go at it, but oh well. Those Diaz brothers may be dumb as shit, but at least they're exciting.

I cant remember any of the other fights because the card fucking sucked. DW - You owe me $50 bucks.

Did anyone catch the UFC Asia guy calling Hong Kong a country?

See? I told you people. Toney in the 2nd round by side check kick!!!

no second round?
no kick?
loser check?

My sarcastic sense of humor demands I make some snappy comment but, I'm still laughing too hard at Toney tapping out "like a girl" as they say. It really was the perfect ending.

The people on here talking about Maynard coming in and beasting Edgar must be borderline retarded. Their first fight was a total LnP special. If you thought Edgar-Penn was boring, imagine how boring it will be to see Gray Maynard land 2 overhand rights and 2 takedowns a round while sitting in guard for at least 20 minutes of a 25 minute fight.

I have always like BJ Penn, so with that in mind I must reiterate the past two posts here.
BJ your corner-men and trainers did you a huge disservice last night.
They did nothing to help you prepare for this fight and even less to motivate you during the fight.
Now your camp needs to completely re-evaluate your entire preparation for every future fight. IMO some of them just need to be let go.

To BJ personally, you need to have a very hard look inside BJ Penn to find the courage to make drastic changes in your training, or retire with some dignity and admit to yourself that you are just not prepared to make the sacrifices that are required to be competitive in the "new era" UFC.
Your performance was lackluster at best, and disgraceful at worst.

Randy,........fuck could you have at least made one leg kick just so I didn't sound like such a jack-ass by predicting that you would?.....sheesh!....JT still got humiliated and that was worth the 60 bones to watch.

Joe Lauzon,.....that was epic!
Kenny Florian,......that was just sad!....did you expect to win with that stare and prayer tactic?

I was enjoying the fights... And then Toney came out and I couldn't stop craving chocolate pudding.... Then Bj came out and I couldn't stop falling asleep.

Bj needs a whole new camp his corner sucked and his game plan sucked. When do you see someone get dominated on the feet in 10 rounds of fighting and still not try hard for takedowns. He could take frankie down and was far superior to hum on the ground, had he taken him down more it would have been a better night for bj. He's half descent as a striker but his jiujitsu is very good yet most fidgets he sounds the majority of the time trying to avoid goo g to the ground
MoTropolis- August 29, 2010 at 6:09 am
And worst performance of the night goes to ...

BJ Penns corner...WTF?!? I thought the audio went out on the tv when they went to BJ's corner between rounds. It felt like they were afraid to tell him he was losing and he needed to start fucking fighting. Do you wanna lick blood off your gloves at the end of the night or dont you BJ???
incredifat- August 29, 2010 at 6:06 am
So, here's what's gonna happen in the lightweight division:

Maynard will win a decision over Edgar, thus one of the most boring fighters in the UFC will be a title holder.

But he will not keep the belt for long. Dunham will submit Sherk, and then he might have to submit someone else before moving on to submitting Maynard for the title. Dunham will keep the title for a long time.

Also, during the fights last night, they showed some trailers for the new TUF show and Im starting to feel like UFC is really riding the shit talking train straight into Pro WrestlingVille. The last 2 cards were promoted mostly thru trash talk via Chael and then Toney and now you got this joker Kos talking about GSP to push the show. I dont mind the shit talking, and I agree that it can make for a more exciting build up to a fight but its gotta be based on something substantial, or atleast come from a maniac like Toney. It just seems forced coming from Koschek and being aimed at GSP, who has never shit in anyone's cereal.
MoTropolis- August 29, 2010 at 5:56 am
Frankie could end up being a good champ for the UFC if he can stayed as motivated as he was against BJ last night. He showed a lot of heart and incredible pace. I give him a lot of credit for pushing the fight, even in the final seconds knowing he had the fight in the bag and not coasting. Im expecting BJ to announce his retirement after last night. I just dont see where BJ or Ken Flo can go from here.

Lauzon BEASTED last night!! One of the best MMA performances I have seen, albeit against a can. I would like to go back and watch the fight again to count how many transitions he hit during the last minute of the fight.

Im a huge Diaz fan but it was funny to see how quick he stopped hitting that taunt button after he got caught. He changed Marcus' nickname from "The Irish Hand Grenade" to "The Irish Head Grenade" tho. Dude looked like he had shrapnel in his dome.

Overall, a lackluster card, but you kinda expect a party to suck when you hear Lay Gaynards invited.

@> boxing? they are different sports. Toney is the equivalent of a sprinter turning up and thinking he can win the decathlon because he's the best over 100m.
I don't see the sports as being in competition I've been watching boxing for 25 years mma about 12 and still get excited by both sports.
last night was freak show, Toney is a slob he would get destroyed by the the Likes of David give a smart young athletic guy guy like him 9 months training take down defence, with a reputable trainer ,not a chuck Norris impersonator and we might have a fight...not saying he'd win but easily be a better performance than a punk dunk retard.
TheHuytonHandGrenade- August 29, 2010 at 2:58 am
Made up for Randy he put it all over Toney made a show of him. B.J is still a legend in this sport no matter what happened to him last night he was dominated by Edgar but Edgar is just not exciting at all he doesnt hurt his opponents with those little punches of his im glad Maynard won cus he will tear him up hes to strong for Frankie.
vengful1- August 29, 2010 at 2:54 am
Way to train in take down defense Toney. I've never seen someone taken down so easily (besides your mom). This was proof that boxing makes you retarded (I guess Toney proved that a long time ago). MMA>Boxing.
RwilsonR- August 29, 2010 at 2:12 am
Honestly, I can't stop laughing at BJ's pathetic performance.

He probably won't bother with any injury or greasing excuses. His excuse will almost certainly be what a lot of the comments from BJ fans on have already focused on - he just looked bored and unmotivated. So we will be fed some crap from BJ about how if he were really motivated, he would easily beat Edgar, but he just couldn't find the motivation for this one. Never mind how many times he told us before the fight he was more motivated than ever.

The truth is that BJ has never had heart in any fight. Any time he can't impose his game, he gets frustrated and shuts down. Pulver, GSP, Edgar I & II. He has a lot of natural talent, and a lot of natural stupity. He has no ability to gameplan or adapt. He only knows how to beat less talented fighters, but refuses to learn anything beyond what he already knows. He looked bored and unmotivated because Edgar made him lose heart and look that way.

Fuck that lazy Hawaiian asshole! There is no fighter I have ever disliked as much as Penn, and it is good to hopefully see his legacy go down in flames. Beaten every round by a Featherweight. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

So Rex and Viva - did you guys get a picture of Goldstein deep-throating that onion ring tower at your little meet and greet?

Submission was me tellin her "fiiiine I will put it in your ass but when I'm ready I'm headed straight to your mouth"

Fight was jon anik vs security trying to get in the cage to save ken flo.
ccman- August 29, 2010 at 12:06 am
Watched at my boys new sports bar and the after fights blew away the card.

Maynard v edgar I would honestly skip.... nothing to see folks... keep moving. If dw was the satan fedor fluffers call him he would reverse decision just to make anything coming up in title fights worth watching. Please don't get boring... bellator is to fat to be my primary.

Fuck tooney. Fuck boxing elitist bitches. Please tell me a story about a parking lot brawl now. Only thing of note was how fucking low was that shoot? Randy's. Knees must feel jenna jameson-esque

Can't wait for espn chat and hear anik make up excuses for his fantasies loss. Dude seriously has no central nervous system.

Any diaz win is a loss for etiquette and a step foward for ghetto tin foil bong hits. Why do laws require we don't put em down like a vick fighting dog is beyond good taste.

Out to eat some "sorry for your loss" cake
Merlin- August 29, 2010 at 12:02 am
Whatever homies, you all need to stop "the hateing" on James Toney.

No one told him excess back fat acts as a natural suction cup to the cage floor.

Know what I am saying?

Oh and garble garble ... greatest, mumble mumble ... boxing, ebonics ebonics ... fighter ever.
