On Saturday, 8 September, ONE Championship held its latest spectacle ONE: BEYOND THE HORIZON in Shanghai, and the card featured five unforgettable moments.
Nicco Montano’s coach Tom Vaughn: “To tell you the truth, we wouldn’t mind Nicco fighting Valentina’s sister – beat her up, then go back for Valentina.”
Valentina Shevchenko: ”You have to start your diet earlier, you be professional. You have to be responsible about what you have in your hands. But this is total irresponsibility.”
Nicco Montano: “My short temper was like, ‘Eff this, you just almost died for a company that doesn’t even call you to see if you’re alive?’”
Dana White: “Every time Tyron Woodley opens his mouth, he shoots himself in the foot. He’s a very unlikable guy to fight fans.”
Tyron Woodley: “I want to stay as active as possible. If November is a date they’re looking for a main event, I think they got their guy.”

GSP: “I didn’t say I was going to do it. People headlined me the wrong way, to sell articles. That’s the society we live in.”
Darren Till: “I just spoke to Woodley backstage and he’s lost. Jon Jones has lost. Georges St-Pierre has lost. All the greats have lost.”
Geraldo ‘Luan Santana’ Coelho: “If you are the man, as you say then fight me this November at the Brave International Combat Week. I am going to kick your a** out of Brave Combat Federation.”
Jim Miller: “And the most messed up part is that my Lyme disease is not that bad, comparatively, to some people I’ve met.”
Diego Sanchez: “Yes I am. I’m the longest-lasting, last man standing. And you can put that on a meme.”
Tyron Woodley: “I told myself that I had to beat him to be the greatest, but I don’t. This sport is different.”
Nicco Montano: “With no other choice and with the internet backing a lying bully (Valentina), I was forced to accept the date or have the threat to get stripped anyway.”
