Jackson: Rash not a top fighter


Jackson: Rash not a top fighter

Published: 25 Sep 2009

QUINTON JACKSON has fuelled the fire in his war of words with Rashad Evans by questioning his credentials as a top-level fighter.

Rampage was due to meet Evans at UFC 107 in December but pulled out of the bout after agreeing to play the part of BA Baracus in the forthcoming A-Team movie.

Then, earlier this week, he dropped a bombshell by declaring his intention to quit mixed martial arts in order to pursue a full-time acting career after receiving criticism from UFC president Dana White.

Evans then had his say on Jackson's retirement and told of his disappointment at being denied the opportunity to fight his fierce rival inside the Octagon.

Their feud began following Jackson's UFC 96 victory over Keith Jardine, when then light-heavyweight champion Evans entered the cage to square up with Rampage.

Sugar went on to lose the crown to Lyoto Machida in his first title defence, with both he and Rampage named opposing team captains on The Ultimate Fighter 10.

Their bickering continued and the fallout is currently being screened on the Five USA channel.

And 31-year-old Rampage — a formed 205lbs champ himself — has now fanned the flames in their ongoing row by calling into doubt Evans' MMA ability.

He said: "Rashad remains to be a boy under me. He wins a few fights, and some of them I thought the judges fell asleep during the fight and woke up and saw him playing with his nipples and guessed he won.

"He knocked Chuck Liddell out when Chuck wasn't even the same man anymore. And now he thinks he's on my level. Yeah he talks about how he beat Forrest [Griffin] and I lost.

"But when I fought Forrest that was the worst Rampage I had ever seen. And I still know in my heart I won that fight. So now he's Mr All Cocky and says I got a big mouth and talk a lot of smack.

"If my memory serves me correctly, he's the one that got into my face after the Jardine fight and started talking trash when he was the one that was originally supposed to fight me that night, but he told Dana on the phone he didn't want to fight.


"He wanted to keep his belt longer. Now, I'm not saying whether or not I would have beaten Machida, but I wouldn't have went out like a bitch like the way he did.

"So I'm the one that was looking forward to the Rashad fight the most. I have always been a fighter my whole life.

"As a kid my family treated me like s*** which made me the person who I am today. This is why when I meet people I treat people the way I want to be treated, unless they approach me wrong or p*** me off.

"I grew up thinking that I wasn't even important to my family which made me not even care about myself. That's why I can get kneed in the face 15 times and come back for more.

"That's why I can get my legs seriously hurt in a fight and still try to win. That's why I can get my ribs broken in a fight and not tap out because my whole life I never thought I mattered to anybody or anybody cared about me.

"But now I have kids that love me and care about me and I'm not used to people caring about me but it feels good! I'm a very loyal person. Wolves are the most loyal animals on the planet.

"I was very loyal to the UFC, but now I owe all my loyalty to my kids...the ones who really care for me."

And an emotionally-charged Jackson claimed he is still willing to fight 30-year-old New Yorker Evans to shut him up once and for all.

He added: "The majority of my fights on the street I fought for free and they all were with emotion.

"I am a fighter, I will always be a fighter but my professional fights that were fought with emotion, I ended them all in devastating fashion.

"I am the wrong fighter that should fight pissed off professionally. I don't even consider it fair. So Rashad says he will fight me for free.

"I will gladly meet him at any gym and fight him just to shut his mouth up. And I mean that for real!"

Rampage is talking a lot of head for someone leaving the ring.

First Quinton, the biggest mouth in MMA, accuses Rashad of being all talk, now he runs away from the fight while he's saying he's going to kick Rashad's ass... Something's wrong with his brain, I'm afraid he's going to have a mental breakdown again soon.

You should have worded the title "Rampage" instead of Jackson. Because at first I thought Greg Jackson was saying that Rashad is not a top fighter, and I got very confused. :P

Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler
