Post-Fight Quotes from the Event:

Brian Ortega:

“I was counted out. I understand, you leave the game for two years, you get counted out. I’m here to remind everyone. It felt great to have this happen again, having your hand raised at this level is important, it’s the number one thing.

When you look at sports, I’m a Laker fan, I’ve been a Laker since I was a kid, Dodger fan since I was a kid, win or lose, I’m with my team. MMA, I bet you I’ve got a bunch of Korean fans, because they just left Korean Zombie and now they’re coming to me and then, if I lose, they go to the next person. We have short-term memory fans I guess. For those of my fans who stayed with me, I love you guys and know that I truly appreciate you guys from the bottom of my heart. For those who switch up, pick someone, stay loyal, make us feel good about what we do.”

Jessica Andrade:

“I hit her with a punch on her stomach and she yelled out and turned around and for a second I thought that the fight could have over, but she turned around so I said it’s not over and I went in again and kept hitting her and then the referee stopped it. It was really fun, I had a really good fight week. All happiness, very happy all over when. I used to fight at 135 and that’s how I used to feel, so it felt good. The girls are bigger, but I’m strong and I can go in there and compete with them,”

Jimmy Crute:

“I thought he was going to leave more openings to be taken down, but he didn’t and I’m sort of glad that he didn’t. The biggest thing for me was to not rush and be confident in my abilities and not get too emotional in there like I’ve done in the past. I had a lot of help from a lot of close people, my two coaches over there, my old man, my mom, my strength and conditioning coach.”

James Krause:

“Obviously I solved the puzzle, so that’s nice. I’ve got to go back and watch it, but I felt like the fight went just about how I thought it would. I felt like if I got hold of his body early, that would get him tired, and that up-down early in the first, I knew that would get him tired too. So, honestly the fight went about how I thought it would, I would have liked to come out with a finish, but given my circumstances with the 13, 14 days’ notice, I’ll take the win over the guy that’s never been beaten before.”

Jonathan Martinez:

“I took this fight on eight days’ notice, so I feel good, really good. I just want people to know who I am. A lot of people don’t even know who I am, I am here to make statements and climb up the rankings. I just beat Almeida, so hopefully, that clicks,”
