Speaking at the post-fight press conference for UFC Fight Night 140 (via MMAjunkie), UFC welterweight fighter Neil Magny discussed his main event loss to Santiago Ponzinibbio. Below are some highlights from the post fight press conference.

Neil Magny on his loss: “I think it’s pretty obvious (I’m) beat up. Beat up and disappointed. Obviously it wasn’t my night. … His power was impressive. Whether it was a jab or a cross or a hook, I was still looking up wondering where that punch came from. He has speed in his hands, power in his hands, and precision with his punches.”

Magny on living and dying by the sword: “Live by the sword, die by the sword. I’m in there to protect myself at all times. … I think I would be more disappointed in myself if I were to quit or if my coaches were to call it early. I’d rather fight tooth-and-nail until the last possible second and give it all I’ve got.”
