Palelei on getting a win in Australia and a message he got from his daughter about wanting Christmas presents: "I got a message from my daughter this morning. She wanted some Christmas presents. I was like, ‘Damn, I've got to win!' But it is a big win, and especially against Pat. But I'm happy to be representing Australia, and putting Australia and Perth on the map."
Palelei on his confidence in his ground game: "I've been doing it for the past 16 years. I'm a first-degree Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt. I'm really confident that if I get on top of you, you ain't getting me off."
Palelei on wanting to fight again soon: "If the UFC tells me to fight another show, I'm happy to hop in there. I'll take a few weeks for Christmas break, but I'm ready."
Palelei's thoughts on Barry: "I respect Pat as an athlete and a sportsman. He's a really dangerous fighter. I was really worried about his kicks, but I played my game and hopefully, I made a statement today."
