UFC 247 Quotes

UFC women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko:

?I think it’s going to be a good fight. Katlyn will put everything inside the Octagon. Being in the position I’m in right now, it’s pushing me to train harder than anyone. Every training is like a mini-competition. I’m ready for anything, It doesn’t matter what my opponent has.?

?I want to be the best, everyone says this but few can do it. You have to keep your goals inside you. When people prepare for action and have this goal, they think first and then do. In my mind, it’s do first and think later.?

Challenger Katlyn Chookagian:

“I think it’s just another fight, I try not to think of it as the title. I’m confident in the way tat I’ve trained. Whether it’s fighting Valentina or someone else, train as hard as you can so you can be as prepared as you can for the day of the fight.”

“This is a lifelong goal to be the best in the world. This is the hard training I’ve put in my whole life. It’s paying off because I’m reaching my goals.”

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones:

“I like (Reyes) as an opponent. I really like that he’s undefeated. I like what comes out of me when I fight someone undefeated. Dominick has the attitude of being superior, and it’s going to feel great to give him the first taste of defeat.”

“Fighting is fighting. A lot of these people like to consider themselves the ‘new style’, but theres only so many punches and kicks you can do. I’m starting to fight guys who – when they joined the UFC – I was already the champion. My job is to go in there and try to dominate.”

Challenger Dominick Reyes:

“I wouldn’t say (this rise to contender) was a whirlwind, I’m living this every day. I don’t look back very often, but yeah, it happened fast. It’s because of my work and attention to detail.”

“I’ve watched him catch an overhand right, I’ve watched his legs stiff. I grew up with guys like him. I’m not impressed. He’s scared today, he’s made that very clear.”

“He’s a great champion. If I were not the underdog, that would be pretty odd. Everything’s going exactly as it should be. When the road ahead seems daunting, take a breath and take it one step at a time.”
