Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson returned to the UFC last night and defeated Fabio Maldonado via unanimous decision.
The fight didn’t go exactly how Rampage had hoped, but says he doesn’t think it has anything to do with his two year UFC layoff. Jackson had this to say at the post-fight press conference.
“The last time I fought was last May, close to my hometown, I have no excuses. I wasn’t rusty or nothing. This is the hardest I’ve ever trained in my whole 15-year career. I started back training with Bobby Rimmer. He’s like one of the best boxing coaches I’ve ever seen and that I’ve trained with. And he pushed me to the limits. He pushed me to points that I didn’t even think that I could perform. I got no excuses.”
“I just think that Fabio is not human. I hit that guy with everything, and he was asking for some more. I was like, damn. I even tried to kick him in the head. I didn’t even think he’d see that coming. I didn’t know what to do. I was thinking about blowing my bad breath on him…but I didn’t think that would work either. So I just kept trying.”
