Colonel Quinton: Rampage Jackson will fight you for two dollars worth of fried chicken

It's not unreasonable to assume that someone flying to Japan on business (or pleasure) would be looking forward to eating a lot of sushi.

Not Quinton Jackson.

"Rampage" can get sushi anytime he wants, because his ex-wife is Japanese. So what does he really want after fighting Ryan Bader at KFC UFC 144 on Saturday night (Feb. 25, 2012) at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan?

Fried chicken.

Not just any fried chicken, either, but the kind they sell at 7-Eleven for two dollars behind a crusty old case on the checkout counter. According to Jackson, it's so good, he'll fight you for it.

Hear why (via 5th Round) after the jump.

"My ex-wife is Japanese, so I get Japanese food all the time. But, some things I can’t get, and it’s gonna sound really stupid, but I can’t wait to go to the 7-Eleven and get that chicken that they have. I’m black, man. I like that little fried chicken. It’s better than KFC, [better than] everybody. That little fried chicken they got behind them little window things, man. It costs like $2. I go and I get me a big bag full and they be like, ‘No! No! You gotta leave some for the other people.’ I’m like, ‘Koku-jin. I’m black, man. You can’t tell me I can’t buy this chicken. What’s wrong with you? He’s like, ‘Go to the other store down the street.’ We got into an argument over chicken. So I’m pretty sure I’m gonna get kicked out of a 7-Eleven after my fight trying to buy up all the fried chicken."

This could be the first documented case of a fighter holding an afterparty in a convenience store, but after dieting and training for so long, I guess you have to give in to your cravings. I prefer the 7-Eleven nachos with imitation cheese dip, but to each their own.

Anyone think "Rampage" will have cause for celebration this weekend? Or will he "chicken out" against Bader on fight night?
