'Rampage' Jackson Not A Sore Loser, Gives It Up For Jon Jones - FightLine.com
Following his four-round beatdown at the hands and feet of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, Rampage made no excuses and gave nothing but respect to the 24-year-old Bones.
He admitted that he was in the best shape of his life and that Jones beat him because the hype is real: the guy really is that good. Of course, softening the blow was the fact that Jackson pocketed a nice payday for his efforts.
"I'm not a sore loser," said Jackson. "I thought I was going to be really upset and really mad, especially after Jones did exactly what he said he was gonna do: finish me and stuff. I haven't been submitted since Sakuraba (at Pride 15 in 2001). It is what it is. I trained really hard, I can't beat myself up. I'm just disappointed, I wanted to be my boxing coach's first world champion. … Other than that man, I'm just happy 'cause I made a lot of money."
