Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson appeared on ESPN’s SportsCenter yesterday to talk about tomorrow night’s fight with another former light-heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida.
Asked what he learned from his last loss Rampage admitted, “I learned not to take so much time off and try to compete at the top level. You know, it’s really hard when you do that. I thought I could do it but I was wrong.”
He then says that during filming for the A-Team movie he didn’t get to train, and by the time he got down to training for the fight he felt like, “I shouldn’t even have been there.”
A well worn theme in Rampage’s pre-fight interviews was then addressed as he talked about his concerns over the fact that Machida may put on a ‘boring’ fight.
“He’s coming off a loss where he got knocked out for the first time. A lot of time when people get knocked out for the first time people become gun-shy and stay out of punching range for too long.”
Despite that Rampage says he’s going to try his best to make it an entertaining fight for the fans.
