“I’ve been saying this a lot over the last couple weeks. Without getting into it, I felt bad about what’s happened to those guys over there in the last year. Nothing I can do. But they hung in there, and they came in here and delivered. It was fun tonight. These guys came in from Strikeforce and they really did a great job tonight. I’m happy for them. Life is going to be a lot different for these guys now.”
