Quinton Jackson and Jon Jones took part today in the UFC 135 press conference in Denver, Co, which lead to quite a few exchanges between the two top light heavyweight fighters.

Jackson, feels he has been unfairly group with the old school of fighters despite not being old at all and showed frustration during the conference:

“Who you calling old, dawg?” said Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson at the UFC 135 press conference.earlier today. ” I'm only 33, man. You all act like I'm Randy Couture's old decrepit ass … goodness. You know, if I gotta represent the old school, then I gotta represent 'em. Hell, ya'll put me in that category, you know?”

Rampage also commented on his Pride days in comparison to Jon Jones being the youngest UFC Champion:

“I was younger than him (Jon Jones) when I started in Pride, I was 21, 22, when I was fighting people like Wanderlei, so I guess so, I'm old school. With old school comes experience. He's the youngest champion, but I think he's the least experienced champion in UFC history. All this stuff don't matter to me, I just come to fight, get my belt back. That's the only thing I care about.”

The former UFC Light Heavyweight Champ also discussed his thoughts on their September match up and how he feels it will play out:

“I see Jon Jones getting destroyed. He's got my belt, man, I want my belt back, man, I ain't playing. All the pressure's on him, I'm in a win-win situation. The last time I was this confident I knocked somebody out in the first round and I got that belt.”
