“Rampage”: Jones may be the future but I’m the present

In the latest installment of the “Rampage” Jackson YahooSports blog Jackson goes into details about his physical development as well as his thoughts on his UFC 135 opponent, Jon Jones.

Having moved his camp to Denver Colorado, Rampage has been in isolation training for the past eight or more weeks in preparation for his attempt at regaining the UFC title he lost to Forrest Griffin back at UFC 88 more than three-years ago.

The following are key excerpts from his blog and the full unedited version can be found at the link at the bottom of the entry.

I can’t believe the shape I am in for this fight with Jon Jones next week here in Denver for the UFC 135 main event and light heavyweight title! I’m weighing 221 lbs right now, nine days out. I’ve never been in this kind of shape before. I like it! It feels good not to be like, “Oh, man! Weight cut is next week!” The cut to 205 lbs is going to be easy.

I am ready. But Jon Jones is in the big leagues now, and he’s not ready. He needed this fight in another couple of years’ time. Jon Jones does unpredictable things but, really, we’ve seen it now bro, so it is not unpredictable any more. We’ve seen the spinning elbow four or five times, Jon “Bones” Jones. We’ve all seen it. Maybe Jon Jones is going to get me with some knees – I expect that, it is a fight – but I am gonna get him with my hands, too. You look at those Bambi legs and wonder what happens when I hit him.

Jon Jones is more “elusive” (or whatever that damn word is) than Lyoto Machida! Anyone heard or seen Machida? I need my own spy to just make sure he still actually exists. Before he fought that injured Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Jones was doing a lot of talking in a lot of places. He was signing autographs as “World Champion” even though the fight hadn’t happened, and he was talking a lot about his destiny or something. Jon Jones isn’t saying anything about this fight with me. We’ve not heard nuthin’ from Jon Jones since the fight is announced. For real, he’s disappeared.

I don‘t care if I am in his head or not, or if he’s confident or scared or not, because I am going to do what I have trained to do no matter how he is. If he’s intimidated, he is going to try to take me down – I know he don’t want to mess with me standing anyway. And if he’s confident, let’s do this Jonny Jones!

I know he’s got some great skills and honestly I am impressed how fast he’s learned – he is the future of the division in my opinion, but I am the present. Rampage is the present of the UFC light heavyweight division.

He’s a kid who’s had it his own way, and the little bit of time he’s not had it exactly how he wants it, he’s sulked and pouted. Same thing at the press conference to announce this fight – I was having fun, joking around, selling the fight but I was giving him props! I was being respectful saying he was the future of the sport and how I like his style and all, but then he started pouting. Why he pout? Because the media people weren’t laughing at his jokes, so he got a “sore botty” because they were laughing at my jokes not his. That’s what the English guys say at the Wolf’s Lair camp, a “sore botty.”

Jon Jones will have a very sore botty at UFC 135 when I kick it all over the Octagon.

    Cmon Rampage, I got it all on you bruh! The rest of the card is garbage imo but just seeing Rampage take Jones head off is worth the $$$$! PENN NATION!!!!!!!!

  2. Joe says:

    i think diaz is gonna want his money back after watchin jon win

  3. Dana Black says:

    I like Rampage but that fool runs his mouth too much, I guess its all part of “hyping” the fight. I don’t see Rampage running thru Jon Jones easily, He couldn’t even knock out Forrest Griffin. Anderson Silva was backpedaling and ko’d Forrest with a jab! Jon Jones has more skills than Rampage, Jones by TKO.

  4. BigJoeSLC says:

  8. brujo says:

  9. Joegun says:

    Bones jones little tiny chicken legs will buckle when he gets hit with one of those concrete blocks from Rampage. All he’ll do is run but he’ll have to fight sooner or later and when he does he’ll,get ko’d!! Rampage 100%

  10. jason N says:

    not even gonna buy it. Easy win for jones.

  11. Nick says:

    I got Rampage taking this one. We all know Rampage can take punishment. It all depends if Jones can take it.

  12. Ninjaman says:

    Rampage is pure entertainment! He’s funny and a great fighter. Is Jon Jones a better fighter, Yes, but Rampage knows that and he will be ready for it!

  13. Xaninho says:

    Wouldn’t it be funny if Rampage power slammed Jones and knocked him out that way? Jones trying a triangle and Rampage slammin’ that bitch ass right through the cage floor.

    Ooooorrrrrr he could just KO the fucker with a haymaker…..AAAaaahWwhooooOOOOo!

  14. Xaninho says:

    You’re a bit smug to assume you had me getting angry oh feeble minded one… Getting me angry would take words written by someone that actually matters. Keyboardwarriors are not in that category. So sorry to bust your bubble, you just don’t matter….

    • Ahhhhh... says:

      We are BOTH keyboard warriors. We are in the brotherhood ! I am not a “bit” smug—I am smug, you ninny! nah nah nah nah, only jokin’. You were angry, admit it. It’s okay. Let’s agree that, if Jones wins, YOU leave forever, never to visit BJ’s website again. And if Rampage wins, I will never visit ever again. Agreed? If you’re so confident in your boy, this is a no brainer. Put up or stfu, Xanin, you ho !

  15. Q. Jackson says:

    You so very welcome! Thank you for letting me be first during that private session! Again?
