Matt Hamil Talks Rampage Jackson, Reaching The Top Ten

Matt Hamil will have a chance to propel himself into top contender status if he can get past Quinton “Rampage” Jackson this weekend at UFC 130 and the former Ultimate Fighter contestant talked about his big chance and his desire to get into the top ten rankings:

“Beating Tito (Ortiz) definitely put me on line to get big fights like this and I knew I was ready for the next level and I'm really glad I'm there …I know I'm not top 10 in the world. I know (Rampage) wants to fight Rashad Evans or anyone in the top five. I'm only ranked 17th in the world right now. I understand where he's coming from. I feel I can beat him and I just want to thank Rampage for giving me the opportunity. I thought he wouldn't want to accept the fight because he thinks I'm not in his league but I'm going to prove that I am in his league.”

“I wanna be in the top five. I want to face a big name fighter like Rampage that will take me to the next level. Personally, I campaigned for the Rampage fight and said I wanted him because I feel I match up well with him stylistically. He's my favorite fighter to watch because he's so exciting and he's got power in both hands with hand speed of a welterweight. That being said, Rampage gets by on being the biggest strongest guy a lot of times and this time he's not gonna be. He's gonna be outwrestled and he's gonna be taken down. There's no way around it.”
