Well, at least he's an equal opportunity destroyer.
Lest you think Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight number one contender Chael Sonnen only talks trash against Brazilians, the raucous ex-Realtor is also taking aim at former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson, who's making headlines with his anti-ZUFFA tirades.
Sonnen tells MMA:30 that "Rampage" better not "try that stuff" around him.
"You know, Quinton is really good, and I’m not sure why. I don’t have the foggiest idea what he’s good at. He can’t wrestle a lick, I don’t believe he knows any submissions, he’s got no real competitive boxing or kickboxing, but he is a fantastic fighter when you stick him in the cage and you turn him loose. You know, I think he’s got a place, but he’s a crybaby, he’s a real ‘poor me’ guy. He comes in, he takes all the money, he takes all the money, he takes all the spotlight, and it’s still not enough. And, you know, it’s coming down to, you know, guys showed him respect for a lot of years but now he’s just a nuisance. You know, you want to come around me talking that crap; I’ll smack you down so fast. You know, you think you have problems with Ryan Bader, you know don’t even try that stuff with some of us that have, you know, kicked and scratched and clawed while you, you know, you’ve been eating at the trough for years. So, you know, ‘Rampage’ has a place, but you know if he doesn’t want to fight anymore, he doesn’t have too."

Jackson has just one fight left on his UFC contract. Who wants to see him save it for Sonnen, who has no issues moving up a weight class when called upon?
