Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (32-11 MMA) has recently expressed interest in moving up to heavyweight and a bout with Roy “Big Country” Nelson (19-7 MMA, 6-3 UFC) is defintely one he would be up for.
In an interview with Mmamania.com, Rampage was asked if there was anything specific he wanted to focus on before making his Bellator debut:
“Everything. I need to work on everything, man. I need to work on my Muay Thai. I need to work on my wrestling. I need to work on my ground game and even my boxing. That’s what I’ve been doing.”
When asked about a potential heavyweight bout with current free agent Roy Nelson, Rampage had this to say:
“I would love to fight Roy Nelson. Fuck him up!”
The former UFC light heavyweight champion, Rampage, recently signed a long term deal with Bellator Fighting Championships and with Roy Nelson having just completed his contract with the UFC, this is a bout that could actually come to fruition.
