Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson recently revealed his thoughts on his next opponent, a former Light Heavyweight champion in his own right, Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida.
Rampage told MMAFighting.com the following:
“Why would it change because I’m matched up with him? Why would I change how I like his fighting style just because I’m fighting him? I’m prepared for a fight. I’d rather fight someone who’s going to put on a show like me and stand and bang. Those people are true warriors, true fighters like the way BJ Penn fights and Matt [Hughes] fights. I like watching guys like that fight. Other guys I’m not a fan of at all. I feel like I have a fighting spirit, a true warrior spirit. When you get in the octagon, you fight. It’s not like boxing where guys are trying to outpoint each other and go for a decision. We’re MMA fighters, we’re the best athletes in the world. I just hate to see our sport change into boxing where people aren’t even fighting anymore. I can’t even watch a boxing match anymore.”
