You might not have learned his name that Tuesday night, but Quinones promises a treat to anybody tuning in on February 12.

“I don’t look for decisions, I don’t look to lay and pray, I look to knock people out,” Quinones explained. “I’m looking to make people uncomfortable and their experience fighting me to be hell. I want them to remember me for the rest of their life. I’m not thinking about turning people’s heads.”
