    - On Amanda Nunes vs Julianna Pena - looking to rebook fight but not sure when

    - Derrick Lewis vs Ciryl Gane: "it literally doesn't get anyone better this" says he loves Derrick's style, knockouts etc, Ciryl's style of movement etc

    - on a potential UFC event in France: "we'll go anywhere we can sell out" until the timing is right etc

    - possibility of multiple cards in near future for Fight Island, currently sorting out plans with Abu Dhabi partners, "massive plans" in the works

    - for UFC 266: "big plans" to be announced for international fight week

    - on Nick Diaz / Diaz brothers: "they do things their own way", Diaz / Lawler 2 "is a fun fight", has been talking about it for a long time

    - on fighters moving down in weight: "these guys are in control of their own lives, do their own thing", Performance Institute gives advice on proper moves to make

    - Nicco Montano "has a hard time making weight" regardless of weight class, "this may not be the sport for her" "look at Nicco and how many times this has happened"

    - on Cody Garbrandt, possibility of Moreno match up "that's a fun fight, we'll see how things play out"

    - on Islam: "I wouldn't say it's hard to find guys to fight him" "now that he's higher ranked, these guys will fight him" "RDA is a savage, that guy will fight anybody"

    - on Islam star potential: "it's up to him now, continue to win, stay active" "could possibly be the next Khabib"

    - on Paulo Costa vs Marvin Vettori: "every Saturday, we got fights for you. If you're ready to fight, we're here. apparently he's ready to fight now"

    - hasn't talked to Conor McGregor since night of trilogy fight, doesn't know anything about alleged wheelchair boxing match

    - not sure about McGregor's first fight back being Poirier again, too far away and doesn't think that far into the future

    - on AJ McKee: "I owe him lunch? that's awesome, if I said it I will keep my word and buy him lunch" didn't see fight
