Rampage: "I want everybody that has ever beaten me"

New Rampage interview. He talks a lot about the Wanderlei fight, what went down at the weigh-in, Mike Whitehead's comments, Forrest Griffin and a bunch of other stuff.

On his fight with Wanderlei and more...

"My plan was to whoop his ass. I was happy I was nervous for this fight because the two times I fought Wanderlei, I wasnít nervous at all."

"The same way I beat him Saturday was the same way I was supposed to beat him those other times, but things didnít work right."

"I knew if Wanderlei wasnít going down from that left, that right was coming right behind it. He would have had to go down sooner or later. Wanderlei is a tough cat and he recovers from punches really fast when you drop him. All I was thinking is if he didnít go down, I just gotta stay on him."

"Actually, Wanderlei beat me twice and I only beat him once so he still got one up on me. Iím happy to win the fight and knock him out. I hope Wanderlei has a fast and speedy recovery. Heís good for the sport. Heís a very exciting fighter"

"I donít hate Wanderlei and I wasnít even looking for...he kept talking about revenge, revenge. Revenge is a dangerous motive."

"I was comfortable coming in at 206. Wanderlei has gotten smaller over the years and Iím a growing man. Iím 30 years old. Iíve gotten bigger, you know what Iím saying."

"I think if you have knockout power, youíre just born with it. I got big legs, which the people that know about fighting, thatís where your knockout power comes from. I have a big ass and big legs and when I hit people, I put my ass into it."

On Mike Whitehead's comments...

"Who the hell is Mike Whitehead?"

On the weigh-in incident...

"I knew Wanderlei was going to do that. Thatís the second time that heís pushed me or something like that. Iím not that type of person to treat people like that. I do my fighting in the Octagon; thatís where I do my fighting at. I was already motivated and then that just motivated me even more."

"I didnít care what Wanderlei said or did, I was going to keep it classy."

"I donít have no hatred towards nobody or nothing like that. He didnít motivate me no more than I was already motivated."

"I knew he was going to do it and thatís what made it so funny."

"What people didnít see is they have a fighters backroom and when he came in the room, he was looking at me and talking loud. He asked me why I was smiling at him and laughing at him and we had some words back there..."

"He wanted to fight back there."

On Forrest Griffin...

"I want Forrest. I want everybody that has ever beaten me. Iíve been saying that over and over. I want everybody that beat me in the past. I want to fight Forrest next because that was a bad fight. I want that one more because, I donít mean to be complaining or crying, but when I lay down at night, thatís one of the things that stays in my mind."
A lot more from Rampage in the full interview:

Griffin or Shogun, I'd love to see Rampage take either of them; but don't ask for Forrest unless you're ready to start checking leg kicks.

Honestly Rampage hasnt shut up about Wandy in years good to see he has seemed to cast out his demons but it seems its the Forrest fight he is stuck on,

"I was already motivated and then that just motivated me even more."

"He didn’t motivate me no more than I was already motivated."

So which is it? Haha, oh well.

I wouldn't mind seeing him fight Forrest or Shogun next.

Good interview.

When/if Rampage loses again they should have him face Whitehead just so I can laugh some more.

Bloody hell, Rampage's on a...erm, rampage? Looks like he's planning on doing a Chuck Liddell and avenging each and every one of his losses. I don't mind him beating the shit out this Shogun geezer, but I want him to leave Forrest alone. Forrest has really grown on me after his fight with Rashad. And I like Rampage as much as I like Forrest, so I don't want to see either of them lose.

As for the Wanderlei weigh in and fighters room incident..i'm disliking this Wanderlei guy more and more. My respect for him is going down the drain. Seriously..He pretends to be all classy and respectful by posting about Juanito's plan to betray Jackson on the blog, hoping people will see him as some sort of honourable fighter but when the cameras aren't rolling he wants to get into a public dispute with Rampage all because..duh! duh! duh!....he's smile at him.

Wanderlei clearly has insecurities.I think he knew he was going to lose that night and that without illegal substances, he's out classed. Jackson was classy in constrast and just did his job while Wanderlei embarrassed himself. Again.

Why Do We Fall?
