"You still get nervous; this is a pretty big fight. It's kind of far out to be nervous. When you think about it sometimes, you get nervous; it's natural. It shows that you're human. That's when it really hits you; that's the worst thing about being a professional fighter. When you are fighting on the street, you just go, you just react and you know you're about to get into a fight. But it's the anticipation, that's the worst to think about."

-- Quinton Jackson admits to Denver Westwood that he still gets nervous before big fights. Naturally, that means he's really feeling it headed into his UFC 135 title shot against light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones on Sept. 24 in Denver, Colorado. "Rampage" knows he needs to be on point and firing on all cylinders by the time he steps inside the Octagon at the Pepsi Center this Saturday, so he's gone through one of the most vigorous training camps of his career to make that happen. Included after the jump is a pic of his white board training schedule to show how hard he's working in preparation to break some "Bones" and get his belt back. But will he do it? Anyone got Jackson going home with the strap this weekend?
