But some feel it may not have been enough to earn him the title shot he was promised if he was to come away victorious.
That's because, while Jackson was dominant, the boo birds showered the arena with their shrill cries of boredom at the slothful pace of the 15-minute contest.
Of course, it was also necessary that he come away healthy and that may or may not be the case. "Rampage" alluded to a hand injury in the post-fight interview and that has yet to be checked out, although he says he's ready to fight Jon Jones for the light heavyweight title right away.
Who deserves the first shot at Jon Jones and his light heavyweight title?
Rampage Jackson. He beat Matt Hamill and should get what Dana White promised. (951 votes)
Lyoto Machida. Did you see that Karate Kid knockout of Randy Couture? (662 votes)
Rashad Evans. He should be pulled out of the Phil Davis fight to settle his beef with Jones. (1007 votes)
God. Because he's the only one who actually stands a chance against "Bones." (238 votes)
