UFC 144 video: Quinton Jackson takes Tokyo, talks MMA career and more

Quinton Jackson and Ariel Helwani take a 40-minute leisurely stroll through Tokyo, Japan, on a recent evening prior to his 205-pound showdown with Ryan Bader in the UFC 144 co main event from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, on Sat., Feb. 25, 2012.

"Rampage" is rather candid throughout most of the video, talking about the energy drink-fueled, sleep-deprived incident that followed his unanimous decision loss to Forrest Griffin at UFC 86: "Jackson vs. Griffin" back in July 2008, among other topics.

His rise in mixed martial arts (MMA), which basically took place overseas under the Pride FC banner, as well as his career highs and lows from that point until today, also dominate much of the discussion. And "Rampage," who is likely winding down his professional MMA career, also talks about the legacy that will define him once he calls it quits.

All that and more in the comprehensive video above -- enjoy ... if this is your type of thing.
