During a recent UFC 92 conference call with the media, Quinton Jackson was the attention getter for obvious reasons. Following his run-in with the law and subsequent arrest, Jackson has since parted ways with his former trainer/manager in Juanito Ibarra.
Many felt that the loss of his Light Heavyweight title to Forrest Griffin this past July at UFC 86 was the breaking point for Jackson, but he felt it actually had the opposite effect on him.
“My last fight was the best thing that happened to me, I got rid of some old baggage,” Jackson said during the call.
With an 0-2 record against his UFC 92 opponent, Jackson will look to rebound from the Griffin loss and use a win over Wanderlei Silva as a starting point to a re-match for the title he once held.
