What we were left with at the time was Canadian martial artist Harold Howard, who brandished a rather intimidating mullet and sunglasses when he was doing his pre-fight interview before UFC 3 began.
Apparently in Canada, this is a famous phrase although Howard may have been the first and the last one to utter these words.
He quotes this phrase on his personal website, and there may not be wiser words to live by in the UFC than these few from a Hall of Famer like Hughes.
He was never a fighter that boasted how great he was inside the Octagon.
During the UFC 158 pre-fight media conference call, Diaz was made aware that his opponent Georges St-Pierre had not only never been on Twitter but the messages released in his name were done by an assistant.
Add to that, St-Pierre’s face on magazines and ads for products like Under Armour and it led Diaz to stomping all over the Canadian’s gold plated lifestyle. Sometimes fighter quotes don’t really relate back to a certain time or place, and this is one of those moments.
At one point, Koscheck got entangled in a verbal battle with St-Pierre’s cornerman Brad Tate.

Mir was speaking to the cameras during the UFC on Fox: Henderson vs.
Hughes just went to work, won fights and walked out with the title.
He was never one to beat an opponent and then laud his accomplishments over their heads.
