"My mom’s on Rampage’s side. She’s cheering for Rampage. She’s always saying, ‘Ruuh-shawd, be nice to Rampage! He’s so funny!’ I’m like, ‘Ma, who cares if he’s funny?’ It didn’t bother me at first. It was kind of funny until I saw the last two episodes and then I got mad. I found myself getting hot and livid again because I was just thinking, ‘Man. I want to fight this dude so bad.’ I think that when we get a chance to fight, we’re still going to be upset and ready to get it on. That animosity is still going to be there, because we just don’t like each other. I could see him walk into a room and I start getting ready to throw down. The hair raises on the back of my neck because I know he’s going to say something. I just want to crack him."

-- Former light heavyweight champion and Ultimate Fighter 10 Coach Rashad Evans tells the Las Vegas Sun he won't have any trouble getting motivated for a fight against fellow Coach Quinton Jackson if and when the exiled star returns. He was supposed to fight "Rampage" at UFC 107 in Memphis, Tenn., on Dec. 12, which UFC President Dana White says was an obligation for appearing as coach on "The Ultimate Fighter 10." Jackson's role as B.A. Baracus in the new A-Team movie; however, became Rampage's top priority, even prompting him to "retire" from fighting for a brief period. Now that Jackson is expected to return at the conclusion of his Hollywood duties, how long before he and Evans settle their score? And who takes it if they do?
