"I had enough motivation entering this fight after the fight with [UFC flyweight champion] Demetrious [Johnson] was called off, but that would have been a life-changing fight for me. Next, if Henry Cejudo or Joseph Benavidez gets hurt, I'd like to step in for one of them. Ian McCall on a quick turnaround would also be a possibility, but I'd have to talk to my coaches first." -- Wilson Reis, on what's next after his first-round submission win over Hector Sandoval at UFC 201.
