UFC Quick Quote: Rampage Jackson ready to 'whup' some ass as coach on TUF 7


"If they don't listen to me I'll whup their ass.... I saw the first season (of TUF) a couple of times, (but) it comes on late at night. I'm training for fights so I don't have time to watch a bunch of dudes running around a house.... I heard the show's pretty good. I saw some interesting stuff. The first time I saw it, a guy was pissing on somebody's pillow and I thought it was pretty funny so I tried to watch it every chance I got..... I don't really coach people. Most times I try to give my teammates and the people I train with a few pointers about what to do and what works for me and they don't take my advice. I guess I'm not influential. I guess people don't give a damn about what I've got to say about fighting.... I'm just trying to bring what I can bring to the show. (I'll bring) my personality and hopefully act up a little bit."

-- UFC Light Heavyweight Champion "Rampage" Jackson comments via the Boston Herald about his upcoming stint as coach on season seven of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) mixed martial arts reality series on SpikeTV. He will coach middleweights opposite TUF alumni and number one ranked UFC 205-pound contender, Forrest Griffin. The show begins taping in January and is expected to debut in April 2008 with "new and exciting changes" to the original format.
