    Quinton Jackson never shys away from telling the media what he thinks of you if you choose to fight him with a grappling orientated game plan.

    Jackson said on today's conference call like he was almost aware of Glover Teixeira's game plan when it comes to fight day.

    If I was to guess, I think it has something to do with a picture that was tweeted recently featuring Teixeira, Lyoto Machida and Chuck Liddell training at Blackhouse MMA in what looks like a grappling session.

    "Glover is a guy who is just like everybody else, they say they are going to stand with me when most of his training camp is taking me down and fighting me on the ground just like the other guys. These cowards needs to do what they say they're going to do and stop trying to confuse me and have me training in other areas but I'm smarter than that now. Now I see his game plan."

    Jackson also talked about his intentions to leave the UFC. When asked if it was linked with being matched up with wrestler-based fighters by UFC matchmaker Joe Silva, he responded:

    "No, no, that's just one of the reasons. That's not the primary reason. I have a new reason now, I sponsored by Reebok now and the UFC said I'm not allowed to wear Reebok in the cage when other fighters are sponsored by Nike and stuff, why can't I have Reebok? Stupid stuff like that. It's not about money, it's about respect. I put my life on the line and they don't appreciate it."

    The UFC - I can't wear Reebok which I think is illegal as well.


    Jackson then revealed that the UFC tried to re-negotiate his contract.

    They re-negotiated my contract but I didn't want it. I think that the UFC don't know how to treat their athletes. They're getting rich off all of us, we have injuries, surgies, some of these guys fight for $10,000, $20,000, that ain't right, man.


    You can listen to the conference call here.

    Isn't it crazy in this sport how if you want to stand with your opponent, the onus is on you to force the fight standing.

    It's almost as if the sport is entertaining because there's a battle for where the fight will take place.

    So sick of Rampage's entitled BS.

    ETA: About the grappling vs. standing. Not the Reebok thing.

    War Rampage. It may not be on his opponents to stand in front of him, but it's likewise not on him to say nice things about them for being afraid of his power.

    War Rampage. He will knock Glover the fuck out, if he actually tries to bang with him.

    With all the shit talking Rampage is doing for this fight, I hope he is in shape, because if he isn't, he is going to look like a tool afterwards

    War Page ... but having Machida and Chuck at your camp does not exactly scream "training to wrestlefuck".

    I really hope Quinton pulls something amazing off. He can honestly win this fight if he comes prepared. I would cry if I saw quinton finish him with a powerbomb or a brutal ko. Quinton please come in shape and you could tool glover. If he comes in out of shape as of recent then, glover will probably GnP rampage.

    I can't wait for Rampage's Ultimate Boxing Championship where everyone makes at least $1 million per fight and all the grapplers aren't allowed to make contact with Rampage with anything but their gloves.

    "Oh no! He's trying to take me down! He don't trade and bang with me"

    Oh Christ, he should do like Kimbo and go to boxing.

    I don't agree with most of Rampage said, but the Reebook stuff is really stupid.

    I kind of hope Rampage wins in dramatic fashion so he goes out as a free agent as strong as he possibly can, only to realize there is nothing waiting for him out there better than what he had in the UFC.

    Reebok........... Does Nike sponsor the UFC organization? If they do the situation is the same in the other sports.

    Rampage hasnt knocked anybody out that can take a punch in forever! Not to mention his boxing is so inaccurate and untechnical. Glover with destroy him

    the only thing that i agree with rampage on, is that the ufc is taking WAY too big of a piece of the profit-pie the ufc makes.

    yeah, yeah...they sign the contract. but where else are they supposed to go?

    this is a moral issue, not a business issue.

    I see his point. Fighters always say they are gonna stand and bang and then they take him down. You people that say he's a winner are the same that say fights are boring when on the ground. We all like seeing the stand up wars.......so lets see some. For the record i dont see Glover trying to takethis to the ground.

    I wonder if Rampage will demand in his contract with Bellator that he isnt allowed to be matched up with wrestlers.
