Rampage Jackson: Jon Jones is a dirty fighter and I would break his knee if I could

In unrelated news, Shane Stant has applied for a gym membership at Jackson's MMA.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson continues to be vocal in his criticism of current division kingpin Jon Jones, who is known for using an oblique kick to target his opponent's knee and keep them at bay (see Jackson's rant here).

Jones' response? Shut up, wussy.

Unfortunately, their UFC 135 title fight did little to dispel his animosity, as "Rampage" still had a few unkind words while talking to the media about life as a Bellator fighter, in which he also gave his prediction on "Bones'" upcoming title defense against Glover Teixeira.

From Fighters Only:

"I think Glover is gonna win. I'm supporting him and I'm betting on him. Jon Jones is an excellent fighter but he doesn't always put on a show for the fans so they aren‘t always happy with him. He is a great athlete. He is also one of the dirtiest opponents I have fought. If I could, I would break his knee for him so doesn't fight ever again."

Mob justice!

Jones was able to submit Jackson back in late 2011 (recap), which started a three-fight losing streak for the Memphis native, one that culminated in his UFC departure earlier this year. "Rampage" has since returned to the win column after knocking out fellow ZUFFA castaway Joey Beltran on Spike TV (GIF).

And it sounds like he's already put a chunk of that fight purse on Glover Teixeira...
