"I have so much respect for fighters like Wanderlei Silva, Chuck Liddell, Rich Franklin and old-school fighters like Tito Ortiz and Mike Bernardo, Josh Barnett and Pedro Rizzo. All those guys come to fight. Tank Abbot, all those guys. Michael Bisping, Cheick Kongo, these guys come to fight. ... Those are the kind of guys I have respect for. The other guys, I am not a fan of them, I won't watch their fights, its just boring to me. When I hear BJ Penn is going to fight, I am going to watch that fight because I like his style. When I hear that someone like Rashad, Machida... even GSP, honestly even GSP, I am not a fan of his anymore. Because I don't like their fighting style, I don't like people who just wrestle and hold people down or just want to score points, stuff like that. I like GSP as a guy and I like Machida as a guy, I don't like Rashad as a human being at all..."
It seems no one is safe from the sharp tongue of "Rampage" Jackson, not even UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre. Coming off a unanimous decision loss to hated rival Rashad Evans, in which he felt he fell victim to lay-n-pray or wall-n-stall or whatever-it's-called, Jackson has been matched up with Lyoto Machida, a fighter with a bit of a ho-hum reputation himself. "Page" has repeatedly been calling Machida out to the media, possibly in the hopes of breathing some fire into the "Dragon" and creating an exciting fight at UFC 123 in Michigan. We'll find out on Nov. 20 if it worked. What say the Maniacs? Do you agree with "Rampage" that point-fighting is boring? Or can you appreciate the tactical battles that guys like Machida and GSP are so often involved in? Have at it.
