“I hate fighting people who are scared. When you fight somebody who is scared you never know what they’re going to do. They turn and run, that’s why I’m gonna go to boxing. I’m gonna try boxing because they’ve got to stand with you. If I get knocked out I don’t care because at least it’s a fight. I’ve tried a lot of boxing, I’m falling in love with boxing and I know I can put butts in seats over there.”
There ya have it… Former UFC light-heavyweight champion just told ESPN that he would rather pursue a career in the sweet science of professional boxing over his MMA career.
While current contracts will prevent him from making an attempt in the striking only discipline professionally if Rampage has his way we may see him in the ring after his UFC days are done.
