'Rampage' Jackson and Rashad Evans trade verbal jabs during today's UFC 114 media call


Wow. I guess these two gentlemen really don't get along after all.

Though we were all witnesses to the drama that unfolded on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 last fall, some people still viewed the beef between Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and "Suga" Rashad Evans as somewhat of a facade. Well, if that's the case, the two light heavyweights successfully carried their brilliant acting performances to today's UFC 114 media call.

Below is a brief transcription of the verbal warfare that took place during the call.

Rampage: "It'd just be a moral victory for me. He has no title. He couldn't even defend it, you know? I didn't even know why I was fighting him. But after being on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10, now I know why, it's to teach guys like this a lesson. This ain't gonna be a big accomplishment for me. What has he done? I was the first undisputed champion in this sport. He hasn't done anything compared to me. This is a step backwards. He's real fake and real cocky for someone that hasn't done nothing."

Rashad: "I was a world champion man. I got the belt off the guy who beat you [Forrest Griffin]. Where's your belt? You don't got nothing either. So we're the same aren't we?"



Rampage: "We're no where near the same."

Rashad: "That's right, I'm better than you."

Rampage: "You can't do nothing better than me."

Rashad: "Hey, the best thing about all this s**t talking is that in two weeks we get to see what happens. And please be at your best. Let me know what I can do to make sure you're at your best."

Rampage: "Just show up. At the end of the day on May 29, you know you're getting your a** kicked."

Sounds legit to me. And that's only the first three minutes. I strongly suggest you listen to the rest of the call courtesy of Cagewriter.

So who won the opening exchange, "Rampage" or Evans?
