Now that Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has settled back into Bellator MMA, it’s time for him to look at potential opponents for the future. During his recent appearance on “The MMA Hour,” Rampage already began generating interest for some potential matchups.
While on the show, Rampage spoke about a potential fight with Kimbo Slice, the man he coached during season ten of The Ultimate Fighter.
“Well, to be honest, when I did The Ultimate fighter with Kimbo, he kind of mentioned something that he always wanted to fight me and stuff like that. And even though Kimbo’s a heavyweight, I’m a big light heavyweight. What I’m thinking is on The Ultimate Fighter, we seen Kimbo get in shape and do well. I don’t think he took Dada serious, and I don’t think he trained hard for him.
“I’m thinking that if I had to fight Kimbo I think he would most definitely train hard for me and he’d probably get in shape. Especially with that embarrassment out there. There’s a lot of people who are kind of embarrassed of that performance from what I’ve read.”
Jackson also spoke about wanting to fight aonther TUF 10 alumni, Darrill Schoonover. UFC fans may remember Schoonover by the lovable nickname Rampage gave him during the show, “Titties.”
“Perfect world, I’m not going to lie — I’d really, really want to fight ‘Titties’ from The Ultimate Fighter, because I’ve been thinking about that,” he said. “We almost got in a fight there and he really thought he could beat me.
“I wanted to beat him up on the show, but I didn’t know if I would go to jail or get kicked off the show.”
