Rampage Jackson Near Obsession Over Regaining UFC Title


“That belt is the unified PRIDE and UFC world title, and that belt exists because of me beating Chuck Liddell and Dan Henderson in two straight fights to win the UFC and then PRIDE titles. Nothing felt better than becoming the first unified champ in MMA history. I plan on getting my belt back at UFC 135. I think now I didn’t appreciate even myself what I had accomplished, and by the time I did, I’d lost it. That’s why I want my belt back so bad. It’s my belt. So it does kinda bug me that people think I’m not taking this fight in Denver next against Jones seriously. It’s dead serious, heart attack serious to me. I want that belt back.”

Former UFC champion, Rampage Jackson, tells Yahoo Sports that he is “heart attack serious” over getting his UFC light-heavyweight title back.

The only problem with his aspirations to regain greatness is that the man who many analysts call the “Future of MMA” stands in his way.

With fight night just a little over a week away is anyone giving Jackson a shot at the upset?
