Quoteworthy:

"This fight right here has nothing to do with money. This fight right here is all about honor and respect. Since I’ve been in the UFC, I have been all about money because quite honestly, I’ve made more money in the UFC than I ever did in other shows. It’s really easy to get beside yourself and be all about the money, all about the money. But I remember back in my Pride days, I used to just go and fight for honor. … I want to go back to my old Pride days when I used to fight to put on a show."

Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson is ready to put his cheddar back in the fridge to focus on the "honor and respect" that comes with competing in mixed martial arts. "Rampage" will take on fellow ex-champion Lyoto Machida at UFC 123 this Saturday night (Nov. 20) in Detroit with a performance that Jackson hopes will "put on a show" like he once did in PRIDE. Anyone think he's a surefire lock to slay "The Dragon?"
