On the horn:
EDITOR IN CHIEF
"Otis (Griffin) is a tough dude," Tony "The Tiger" Lopez told J. Waugh (SR) post fight. "Not only is he a great fighter but he's a great man. He's just a nice guy all around and it's very rare to see fighters like that in today's game."

". . .Otis is a big name. He's a great fighter, been around. He's won a lot of titles," Collins told J. Waugh (www.srmma.com) at the weigh ins. "It'd be a milestone victory for me. . . I've been sparring 12 rounds twice a week. I'm in good shape, ready to go. . ."
|COLLINS (BLK), COLLINS (WHT)|
"I'm just here to make a big impression you know, show everybody I'm back and I'm back in charge," Griffin told J. Waugh pre-fight (www.srmma.com). "I was just telling everybody in the room that this is the most I've ever felt at home in any fight that I've been."
|REF STELL CALLING THE BOUT|
"It felt great man. I closed the show in spectacular fashion," Griffin told J. Waugh (www.srmma.com) post fight. "With me trying to throw a lot of power shots at first, it was hard to find him. So then I kind of just slowed down and went to the jab."
|OTIS GRIFFIN WITH THE WIN|
"Otis (Griffin) is a tough dude," Lopez told J. Waugh (www.srmma.com) post fight. "Not only is he a great fighter but he's a great man. He's just a nice guy all around and it's very rare to see fighters like that in today's game."
|ABELLA (WHITE), MARTINEZ (BLUE)|
"Man it's amazing," Abella told J. Waugh (www.srmma.com). "Since I can remember it was my dream to do it. . . Honestly I felt like I probably could have stopped him in the first round too, but we had a game plan of 'first round feel him out'. . . I want to please my crowd and my fans. I'm trying to be loyal to my fans and give them all I got."
|ABELLA WINNING HIS BOUT.|
"That's what I prepared myself for," Loeza told J. Waugh (www.srmma.com). "I saw the fans, they looked kind of sleepy. I just had to wake them up. . . It's my uncle's birthday. I'm dedicating him this fight."
