Quoteworthy:

"I started this camp very early. I stayed in shape from the last fight and the weight hasn't been an issue this time. Every single minute of this camp will be focused on technique; not getting back in shape or shaking the ring rust after a long time off... If Machida decides to fight me, it will be an exciting fight for one round before he goes to sleep. I am expecting him to run from me, though. He'd wear sneakers into the Octagon if he could! But don't worry, I will hunt him down and get him anyway."

With UFC 123 officially announced for November 20 from The Palace of Auburn Hills just outside of Detroit, Michigan, it was a matter of time before "Rampage" Jackson started to sound off against his main event opponent Lyoto Machida. Quinton claims that if "The Dragon" chooses to fight him instead of run from him, it'll be a short night for the former UFC light heavyweight champ. Do you agree? What's your early take on this intriguing 205-pound showdown? Predictions, please.
