Lamas on the fight’s key moment

“I walked into this thinking it could maybe be my last fight. I didn’t want to walk away with a loss. I always said I don’t want to leave this sport in the dirt. I want to leave with my head held high. That’s a fight I can be proud of.”

Ricardo Lamas vs. Bill Algeo

“I grew up in the WEC and UFC with Zuffa. I’ve been with them for 11 years now. I signed with them in 2009. It’s been a hell of a ride. From Day 1, they threw me in with the sharks. I had to learn to sink or swim. It’s been awesome. I appreciate all the opportunities given to me from the UFC, Dana White and Sean Shelby. I love you guys. Thank you very much.”

Lamas on what he wants next

“I’m not ready to clarify on (possibly retiring) yet. It’s a decision I want to make with my family. With the way that I train, I travel a lot. I spend time away from my kids and wife. I just don’t know if I can do that anymore. I’m going to talk with them and we’ll make a decision together.”
