On a fourth fight with Josh Thomson:
“I have no interest right now, you know what I mean? Everyone was like, ‘Let’s close the book on this,’ and we did. I won two out of three and it is what it is. People can be mad and people can say whatever, but it’s over in my book. I am looking for new things, you never know what happens in the future. Maybe it’s going to come around again, and if it does, so be it.”

On Pat Healy as his possible next contender:
“Pat (Healy) is a guy that is pretty deserving, it’s just hard to say that I am fighting a top ten guy. I think he’s a tough dude. The thing I like about him is that he is new blood. He is a different style and a different look for me and I get to work on different things and get to show skills in different areas. Just fighting new blood is exciting for me at this point. That would motivate me more than the last fight.”
