Rich Franklin Responds to Rampage Call Out | Favors Bader Over Jackson

February 24, 2012 9:15 pm by Pedro Carrasco

“I can understand when you start calling a fighter out like that obviously they are going to get a little upset. Not knowing the story you’re obviously going to wonder if this fighter took this fight seriously. Six pounds is a lot of weight, but he also addressed another issue being on a plane, holding water all that other stuff I had said before.

The interesting thing about this matchup now, looking at this if I was in Ryan Baders camp. I think prior to the weigh-in I think I probably advised him to take Quinton down, but now knowing that Rampage has missed weight he’s probably going back to his coaches. Does Ryan know that Quinton was injured and knowing so does that change the gameplan of this fight?
Does he go ‘Is my conditioning actually going to carry me through this fight or not’ and that’s what going to be interesting about this fight tomorrow. I think I have to go with Bader at this point.”

Former UFC middleweight champion, Rich Franklin, while on tonight’s FUEL TV post-weigh-in Panel addressed the statement made by Rampage Jackson about his comments.
