Rampage Jackson wants Forrest Griffin rematch because Phil Davis fight at UFC 155 will be 'boring'

Embattled UFC light heavyweight Rampage Jackson wants another crack at Forrest Griffin to prove he did in fact beat him way back at UFC 86, despite losing his title via unanimous decision to the former "Ultimate Fighter." He also contends their rematch is a much better option than Griffin's "boring fight" against Phil Davis at UFC 155.

"Give me Forrest, why they won't give me Forrest? The fans think we get to choose who we fight. I'm calling my manager right now. I told Dana I would fight Forrest and Glover the same night. [Forrest Griffin vs. Phil Davis] is gonna be a boring fight! No disrespect to anybody but that's gonna be a boring fight. I'm sorry. This is why I'm leaving the UFC, I don't understand what Joe Silva is doing. You know what I'm saying? Joe Silva have a complex, something's wrong with him, the guy can't match shoes. What kind of matchmaker is this guy? What is he thinking? Give me Forrest! Everybody want that, that will sell, everybody want to see me and Forrest again. Everyone wants to see that but Forrest. Forrest don't want to fight me again because Forrest knows I beat him the first time. He know it, the whole world know it. The only people that think Forrest beat me are haters."

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson, who along with Bas Rutten forgot how medical suspensions work, demanded a rematch against Forrest Griffin at UFC 155, which he believes will be a much better option than Griffin's "boring" fight against Phil Davis, scheduled for Dec. 29, 2012 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. "Rampage" is under the impression that planned opponent Glover Teixeira will be benched for six months and proceeds to unload on UFC matchmaker Joe Silva. Is Jackson just saying what we're all thinking? Or has he gone off the deep end for good?
