Rampage Jackson Eyes Wanderlei; Loses Respect For Griffin

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson spoke very candidly with Fighter’s Only recently. He had some very interesting things to say regarding his future and his recent loss to Forrest Griffin as well as losing respect for the new light heavyweight champion. Check out his comments below:

Jackson On Fighting Shogun:

“I didn’t know anything about Shogun, I was trying to get Wanderlai Silva, I was told I might be fighting him. But to be honest with you, I don’t really give a damn who I fight, I just want to fight and show the world that Rampage is the best when he gets the best elements around him and the best training.”

Jackson On His Fight With Forrest Griffin:

“I just want my fans to know, I was at my worst and Forrest was at his best – and I still beat him. A man is not a man if he can’t ‘fess up to when he gets his ass kicked. See me, if I get my ass kicked I am like ‘yeah, I got my ass kicked’. I’m not a sore loser, shit happens. I was hoping that he would come out later after he saw the fight and say ‘yeah, I saw the fight and I lost that fight.”

Jackson On Losing Respect For Griffin:

“After the fight, I said ‘I’ve got to give you a lot of respect, because you hurt my leg and you had a good game plan’. But now, I don’t respect him as a man. Because if it was me, I would have said, ‘I have to give him a rematch right away, to remove all doubt’. I’m a man and when you fight it’s all about honour. I’m not angry at him or anything, don’t get me wrong, but I’ve lost respect for him as a man.”
