Quinton ?Rampage? Jackson has a message for his fans, and Rashad Evans

Recommended Posts

It?s no secret that Rampage has taken some flack over the last year for his decision to take time off to film The A-Team movie. When we spoke to Quinton this week, he had an important message for his fans on the subject?

 

?I still want to clear [something] up?some of my fans don?t understand why I didn?t fight Rashad in the beginning. I don?t think?the fans that don?t understand now, I don?t think they?ll ever understand. Just because I?m a fighter, doesn?t mean I can?t do other things. I just want my fans to know?no matter what, even though I haven?t been in the cage for a while?people think that I went Hollywood, people always got negative stuff to say. People always underestimate me. I?ve been in this game for a while; I just think it?s funny. I?m just gonna go out there and do my job. I wanna knock Rashad out as quick as possible and get on with my career.?

 

Rampage went on to reveal that he expected to fight for the light heavyweight belt following his 2008 KO of old foe Wanderlei Silva, and that had Rashad still been champion, things might have played out very differently?

 

?If Rashad would have had the belt back then, I would have fought him most likely. There was a good chance that I would have fought him, but the dude didn?t even have the belt. After I knocked out Wanderlei I was supposed to be fighting for my belt next. So here I am. Now I?m really motivated to fight Rashad because of his mouth.?

 

With the fight just over a month away, Jackson wont have long to wait before he finally gets his hands on Evans in what is fast becoming one of the most anticipated fights in UFC history. In an attempt to vocalise his mindset going into the fight, Rampage issued a chilling warning to his opponent?

 

?I don?t fight for glory and fame like some fighters. I don?t wanna walk around acting all tough coz I?m a fighter. But when people run they mouth like Rashad?they get dealt with. I hope he learns his lesson.?

i cant wait for this fight i just hope it lives up to the hype and rashad has the balls to stand with him instead of trying to lie on him like he did the injured thiago silva.... rampages takedown is good tho' date=' should be a good fight.[/quote']

 

Guarentee'd Rashads plan is to get this fight to the ground ASAP! The couple shots Silva connected with in Round 3 only proved that Rashad has a new chin, and it's more fragile than it once was. I got my money on Rampage though his wrestling is decent enough to force Rashad to have to stand with him, and IMO it'll only be a matter of time before he connects. Just hope he shows up in shape, and not like he did in the Forrest fight he was a little bigger in that one.

Rampage do a huge mistake at underestime Rashad ' date=' i think that gonna cost him the fight .[/quote']

 

Also the fact he has no grounds skills and is just a brawler and that he never could fight even in pride

 

Rashad will take him down quickly and then on to victory

I dunno where you got this from......Rampage out wrestled Dan Hendorson and dominated him on the ground when they fought... Rampages ground game is underrated he is not a submission specialist but he defends well and can overpower his opponents.

He always resorts to boxing and I don't think Sugar will stand in front of him

You can beat Rampage from the outside, (Griffin, Jardine) or the clinch, (Shogun.)

 

If you stay out of his limited kill zone, and don't let him take you down, a top LHW stands a very good chance at beating him.

 

And you don't have to point out that Jardine lost that fight, because the judges said it was his 'til he got careless in the last 13 seconds.

I 'm not belittling anyone but Hendo was over 3 years ago and your about being like Chuck thats the downfall in an ever evolving mma fighter

 

Chuck fought the big boys while Tito hid, Went to do some PR work for Dana losing to Rampage who earlier got beat by Shogun. UFC he arrives fought Chuck he won again but lost to Forrest as Rua did ( Hurt albeit )Rua beat Chuck

And this is why he is constantly in the top 10 overrated fighters off altime

rampage was winning the fight despite the last 13 seconds he came close to finishing the fight a lot of times

When was the last time you seen him wrestle?

 

Rampage made his name on defending the take down, then picking the poor bastards up and dropping them on their fuzzy heads. In no way is he "just a brawler." While it's true that he doesn't have the most polished ground game; his wrestling skills are well beyond the basics.

Here's a blog I wrote about him as I have to think I've seen it all, I follow ever aspect and Org in MMA

 

The bum gets a new deal even though he can't fight! To boot he whines like a baby and youse all still give him respect. A black man that looks mean and intimidating is the only reason!

 

Stereotyping this man is all the UFC has done. Promote a black man that has the looks and plays the image of a bad guy to selll thats all they've accomplished! No I'm not racist you could be yellow, purple, green or pink as long as you can fight!

 

I'll take the heat but oh well, I speak the truth and walk to the beat of my own drum,so don't be shy!

 

Wasn't that long ago that Chumpage didn't have his heart here in the UFC and wanted out. Dana gave him his wish to make movies but like all babies comes running back and signs a new contract.Even though he still didn't rightfully or contractually fulfill his last one.

 

So are you looking for a comeback from his days in Pride? Let me tell ya he didn't impress me there either.Lost before he stepped in the ring with Shogun, I've said it a million times bur Sugar says it and its all good " I saw the look in your eye's" Thats becouse he knew he was gettin a beating for revenge on The Sho's brother! Correct me if I'm wrong.

 

Most people didn't know of Rampage here in the UFC till he beat Chuck the second time!

 

So yes even the sun shines on a dogs a$$ every once in a while, like the few impressive wins he has!

 

But do I wanna see him , Hell No unless its against " Bones " Pride's rules so he cannot fulfilll his contract, hell it can even be Macheeza if he would do him in properly.

 

Guaranf*ckunteed He'll never beat Shogun , Bone's or Anderson should he move up and want to take that fight ( Love to see it ) I see a Grif happening.

 

Image is what keeps him around and I find that sad! I love MMA and respect what he does for a living, but he's not even a good fighter nor was he ever IMO.To come home and here the news the UFC resigned him is sickening.

 

Sorry but thats my opinion and to know

all you people act like this is rashad's debut and has never fought before.. ya its one thing to think rampage is gonna win and thats fine.. everyone has an opinion. but to say Evans will get killed and has zero chance on winning is stupid and a bad comment in general and proves you have no mma knowledge what so ever. and i'm gonna say 90% of all the people that think rashad will get killed and ruined and has no chance only say that cause they don't like rashad.. not because they actually think rampage will win. it would not surprise me one bit if rashad won and even in devastating fashion..

You're allowed to have your opinion and express it. As friendly advice, I will say this: people won't accept you've mastered the nuances of MMA - a sport that is always evolviing - when you clearly haven't mastered basic grammar or punctuation, which has remained virtually the same for the last 100 years.

A sig bet is where you bet on a fighter from an event so seeing as you hate rampage i would bet on him and you would bet on rashad.If i win i tell you something really dumb in your Signature but if i lose you tell me

 

I recently saw a sig reading: " I love to lay in Brock's muscular, manly arms..." or something to that effect. Poor bastard. I literally laughed out loud. Startled the person next to me in the cafe..

Why do people bash Rampage for leaving the octagon and filming the A-Team? If I were him I'd do the same thing...being in a blockbuster movie (with Liam Neeson!) is amazing, and that opportunity doesn't just come around...and I'm sure he's getting paid at least double what Dana would pay him for a fight...plus, they disrespected him...he was a reigning LHW champion (meaning he defended his belt at least once) and was not given a chance to regain his title...to say he's not a good fighter is ridiculous, plain stupidity...his losses are to former champions...if he got a rematch with Shogun I'd bet that he avenges that loss like he did against Wanderlei...Pride Rampage and UFC Rampage are different fighters, not to mention fighting in the octagon is a completely different fight...ACTUALLY Rampage is the only Pride fighter to find success in the UFC so what the heeeeeell are people talking about?!

 

With that said, I still think he's going to lose to Rashad, simply because Rashad is a more decorated fighter, with the wrestling and BJJ black belt...

Regarding the movie oppourtunity, I guess I agree. Sure, he's a fighter, but if he gets the oppourtunity making money without getting punched in the face; I can't blame him.

 

Regarding the outcome: I'm inclined to just enjoy the hell out of the fight without picking a corner. I will say that I think Rashad, regardless of his decorations, has a better work ethic. He has discipline on his side. I see Rampage as being the more willfull of the two. Be interesting to see which wins out.

Yeah it will be a great fight...Rampage could very well win, but like you said, I think Rashad's discipline will be the x factor...everyone criticizes his fight against Thiago, but I think Rashad was just playing it safe so that he could secure his fight against Rampage...if he lost, it wouldn't make sense to make that fight...I'm AMPED

Gee I dunno, how about when he outwrestled Dan Henderson?. Or when he took down Jardine? Saying he has no ground skills is stupid aswell. I believe the only person to ever submit Rampage was Sakuraba. He just hasnt wrestled in the UFC as much because his hands have gotten alot better so he doesnt have to. But when Rashad wants to wrestle with Rampage dont be suprised when he gets slammed and ktfo.

No.

One judge that scored it 29-28 may have said that.

Did you notice the other scores of 30-27 that means Rampage won the 1st 2 rounds, so even IF Jardine was winning the 3rd round it didn't mean that he would have won the fight!

 

Though it was obvious that Rampage won all 3 rounds decisively. Forrest only beat Rampage "from the outside" (AFTER the 1st round whopping he took) after he kicked his knee out and still couldn't finish him in 4 rounds or even will all of them.

If he had to play it safe against Thiago to even get to Rampage, what does that tell you about this fight?

Thiago was NOT injured, he's just a punk, as is Rashad.

 

It'll be enjoyable to a full grown man (Page) teach this kid (Rashad) a lesson
