Mike Dolce Not Working With Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson for UFC 130
Mike Dolce Not Working With Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson for UFC 130 -- MMA Fighting
Mike Dolce, one of the key members of Team Quinton "Rampage" Jackson for the last couple of years, has not been helping Jackson prepare for his UFC 130 fight against Matt Hamill. |
Dolce, a fighter who was a cast member on the seventh season of The Ultimate Fighter but has gained notoriety as of late for his work as a nutritionist and strength and conditioning coach, had been working closely with Jackson since his UFC 92 fight against Wanderlei Silva.
The pair didn't have a falling out, however, Dolce was just already booked to work with Thiago Alves for his fight against Rick Story at the same event.
"Business-wise, it's a great problem," Dolce said on Monday's episode of The MMA Hour, "but as a friend, emotionally, it's really hard for me. I had a really tough time with that. I felt like I was leaving my friend; I was leaving my team behind in moving on with my professional responsibilities."
Dolce said he asked Jackson if he had any fight plans coming up prior to agreeing to work with Alves for this event. At the time, Jackson said he was only planning on fighting again in the summer and gave Dolce his blessing to work with someone else for UFC 130.
"What he's doing for this fight with Matt Hammil, I'm out of that picture right now because I'm here with Thiago for the last month or so. But [Jackson] is a different guy. You know, Quinton was winning in PRIDE on McDonald's, he was eating McDonald's twice a day in PRIDE when he fought Wanderlei in those fights. When he beat Chuck [LIddell] he was living off fast food and Subway, Wendy's and Sonic.
"So you can never count Quinton out, he's just such a talent. But at the same time, I would love to be there. I think I bring some things to the table, and I can help bring out that championship performance out of him."
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
