Juanito Ibarra Talks Quinton Jackson Arrest

Juanito Ibarra spoke to MMAJunkie.com about the arrest of Rampage Jackson as well as rumors of him being fired as his trainer:

“I'm devastated by what he's been through and some of the things I've heard,” said Ibarra. “I've not sat down with Quinton to this day to discuss things. I pray for his well-being, and if I helped Quinton out a little bit with his growth in the sport, then I've been very blessed and honored to do that. I love this kid with all my heart, and I wish him nothing but the best.”

Out of respect for his relationship with Jackson, Ibarra declined to discuss speculation about this status as Jackson's trainer until the two have had a chance to talk.

“I'm not going to get in to storytelling. … It's not what I'm about,” Ibarra told MMAjunkie.com. “I haven't sat down with Quinton Jackson, and I'm not going to hear things through sources and through people. This is a kid I've been with for almost four years. I have nothing but love and support for him. All I want for Quinton right now is what's best for him. Whatever he needs from me in any way, I'm here for him and always have been.”
