Attending the pre-fight press conference were the fighters featuring in the three biggest match-ups on the card – Rafael Feijao Vs Dan Henderson, Marloes Coenen Vs Liz Carmouche, and Tim Kennedy Vs Melvin Manhoef.
Check out what they had to say below.
Feijao & Henderson:
Key Quote: “Obviously, I wouldn’t be here if winning a world title wasn’t one of my goals. But the challenge of fighting someone like Feijao is exciting. He’s big, he’s tough and he’s strong. I would definitely enjoy having the belt but the reason I fight is for the challenge.” – Dan Henderson
Coenen & Carmouche:
Key Quote: “I’m always prepared and ready to go. This will be a very exciting fight. Liz will come in very determined because of the opportunity she’s getting, but this is an important fight for me, too.” – Marloes Coenen
Kennedy & Manhoef:
Key Quote: “I’m just excited to be fighting a guy that comes to fight. Manhoef is exciting and comes to win. It is exactly the recipe for a good fight and that’s what I want on Saturday.” – Tim Kennedy
