Rampage Jackson: A fight with 'big mouth' Rashad would be 'boring'

Props: Fighthype


"I did the UFC a favor and fought Jardine because Rashad wouldn't fight me; that's why I fought Jardine, because I was supposed to fight Rashad after the fight with Wanderlei. Since Rashad got a big mouth and got in my face, you already know who I want to fight. I'm thinking it might be a boring fight, but what do I know?"

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson -- currently nursing an injured jaw -- has some unfriendly words for current 205-pound kingpin Rashad Evans. "Rampage" was originally set to throwdown with "Sugar" at UFC 96 last March, however Evans did not feel he would be ready in time for the title defense, thus allowing teammate Keith Jardine to take his place. Now Jackson will have to wait until later this year for a crack at Evans and the light heavyweight belt -- assuming number one contender Lyoto Machida doesn't derail those plans when he fights for the strap on May 23.
