WHAT DID THE MAIN EVENT FIGHTERS SAY:

Leon Edwards - "You are going to see a new, improved Leon. I’m going to take it all out on Belal’s head. The last year and a half is all coming down on his head. It’s going to be an entertaining fight. After going out and beating him, I’ll look towards a title shot. All the other guys don’t want to compete. It seems like the only guys who want to fight are me and probably Usman, everyone else is making excuses and demanding stuff they don't deserve. I’m the only one that’s offering to fight guys outside the top-five. I’m the only guy that’s taking this kind of risk and it will pay off. I believe I’m the best in the world and I’ll prove that."

Belal Muhammad - "He is top three, you know. They offered him a title fight before Burns. He lost it so that's what I am looking at. I don’t have to go through 13 other guys to get to No. 3. I can just go straight to No. 3, win this fight, and get a title fight. Now, it is about being smarter and not overdoing it. This is a guy that won eight of his last nine MMA fights. In the old UFC days, this is the fricking main event."
