Rampage Jackson training video features 'giant sets' and lots of PVC pipe

What's Quinton Jackson doing to prepare for UFC 144?

"Rampage" has a light heavyweight fight against Ryan Bader this Saturday night (Feb. 25, 2012) at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. And since he's returning to the "Land of the Rising Sun," a place that defined the earlier part of his career as a standout in PRIDE FC, he'll no doubt be looking to put on a show for the Japanese fans.

That means he needs to be in peak physical condition for "Darth," who will likely use his outstanding collegiate wrestling skills to try and upend the Memphis power-puncher. To that end, his pre-fight training regimen is focused on speed and agility, not cold, hard numbers.

Sorry, meatheads.

You won't find any monster bench presses in this video or joint-busting squats. Instead, you'll find plenty of PVC pipe, resistance bands and kettlebells. But will it all pay off on fight night?

Time will tell.
