Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is probably being pulled in 800 different directions nowadays. He is arguably the most marketable MMA fighter around and he is also about to star on the seventh season of The Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV (season premiere is on 4/2 @ 10 pm).
Nevertheless, he was kind enough to take a couple minutes out of his busy press tour this afternoon to talk to Jarry Park. I was hoping to get the happy-go-lucky Rampage but instead I got the to-the-point Rampage.
Some of the topics we discussed included:
* Why he agreed to do the show
* His upcoming bout against Forrest Griffin
* Whether Chuck Liddell deserves a third crack at him
* John Cena stealing his chain gimmick
And these are some of the topics he didn’t want to talk about:
* Whether or not his trainer Juanito Ibarra would appear on TUF 7
* Any TUF 7 specifics
* Elliott Spitzer’s love life.
Oh well, worth a shot…
