[ Q ] Quinton, you have won fights against some of the greatest fighters out there like Dan Henderson, Chuck Liddell, Matt Lindland, etc. Which win is most memorable to you? Why?
[ A ] My last win against Dan Henderson, because it's my last win. It's what I remember the most.
[ Q ] I understand, but which one is most notable to you?
[ A ] I guess I feel the best about the Dan Henderson fight because that's the one that I got the title from.
[ Q ] Some people have come out and said that it was a lucky punch that took out Chuck [Liddell]. What's your response to this?
[ A ] Eh, "Who cares"? They didn't see my training. They're a lot of haters. Was it a lucky punch the first time I beat his ass in Japan? Was that a lucky punch too?
Well that question doesn't really reflect my opinion. It's what's said out there though. You know, to be honest with you, that fight was a racist fight, so I feel like anybody who said it was a lucky punch, most likely that they were haters.
[ Q ] What's your relationship with Chuck like outside of the octagon?
[ A ] Outside he's a cool dude, you know. When I see him I see him, we're nice to each other, we don't hate each other.
[ Q ] Yeah, because you just fight for the money right?
[ A ] Yeah, it's my job.
[ Q ] Will there be a another rematch in the future?
[ A ] I don't know and I don't care.

[ Q ] Is there a certain type of music that gets you psyched before you train?
[ A ] Music? No. I don't need that stuff. You know, I don't know if you guys understand, but I see training strictly as a job. I don't have to take no medicines, no drugs, I don't need no music or nothing to get me going.
[ Q ] Does anyone scare you?
[ A ] Only person I fear is God.
[ A ] I got into MMA so that I could keep wrestling after college.

[ Q ] One of your co-stars Vinne Jones used to be quite a violent pro soccer player prior to his acting career. Did he want to exchange a few moves with you?
[ A ] Vinne Jones is actually one of the nicest dudes I met in a long time, all we did is have great laughs and have a good time. He didn't want to know anything about fighting. I didn't even know that he was a violent soccer player, you couldn't tell by hanging out with the guy. He is the nicest guy. Maybe not so much when you pissed him off. Like you pissing me off asking me these questions about knocking out Chuck with a lucky punch.
