The challengers speak...
MMAjunkie spoke with Alexis Davis and Lyoto Machida ahead of their fights with Chris Weidman and Ronda Rousey at UFC 175. Check out the highlights:
Davis on her low-key presence: "I am kind of quiet and I don't really speak up unless it's time to speak up. I think if I would've been a little more vocal earlier in my career, I would've gotten my chances a little bit sooner...It's because if I try, I kind of sound like an idiot, and it's just not who I am," Davis says. "What am I going to say?"
Machida on his way of selling fights: "I try to show exactly what I am. I'm always trying to sell the fight in a different way. I'm trying to sell the fight with the way I'm fighting in the octagon. I don't want to be the guy offending my opponent before the fight."
Davis on the mix of fighter personalties: "I think it's great. Everybody's different. It's different personalities, and I love listening to guys like Chael [Sonnen]. It's entertaining."
