‘Rampage’ Discusses Importance Of Fedor Fight

There’s no denying that “Rampage” and “The Last Emperor” are legends. With that said, some have criticized the booking of their matchup at this stage in both men’s careers. Speaking to reporters during a media day session, Jackson said those detractors hold no weight (via MMAJunkie.com).

“This is a special moment in MMA history no matter what the naysayers say,” Jackson told MMA Junkie at media day a promoting the event. “The guys who are never going to do anything in their lives, the never-has-beens who want to say about two old guys getting in there  – the true MMA fans are going to win because there’s not going to be a loser. There’s not going to be a loser. No matter who gets their hand raised, there’s not going to be a loser because when two legends get in there, and do what they love, and put on a show, the fans win.”
