Rampage Jackson: I believed I could beat Bader despite getting injured

Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson discussed his disappointing loss to Ryan Bader, and the unsuccessful training camp leading up to the fight. Rampage admitted he somewhat underestimated Ryan Bader in thinking that the knee injury suffered in training wouldn’t prevent from him to get the “W”. Despite being on a two-fight losing streak, Jackson declaed he has no intention to retire anytime soon.

    Called this one, although it wasn’t until Jackson missed weight which definitely hurt him

    More and more fighters have excuses for losing these days. You lost fair and square even though I not a fan of guys who wont stand up.\

    And of course he’s not retiring hes only 33 and can 1 punch KO anyone if he can catch them. Just stop putting him against wrestlers that make for boring matchups. Thats why his 3 fights with silva were so good.

    Not excuses FACTS. He was injured he thought he could win and didn’t. To quote Rampage before the fight ”I’ve won fights injured and i’ve lost find injured”. He could have easily pulled out and took another fight, Dana did offer him another fight but he clearly made the wrong decision. At this point of his age he should be taking less risks with his health.

    Jackson, you need to join the blackzillians, homie. You looked like James Toney lastnight against Bader. It was sad to see you lose like that

    Why the Blackzillians? Because hes black? There are many teams and gyms who teach the ground game.

    He should fvcking retire already, same old excuses and drama. It’s not MMA anymore, it’s celebrity BS. Does anyone really care if Rampage will finally “re-motivate”, what a fvcking waste…….
