Quinton Rampage Jackson dominates Matt Hamill on his way to a Unanimous Decision victory at UFC 130Posted on May 28, 2011, 10:42 PM by Anton Gurevich
No surprises in the main event of UFC 130, as Quinton "Rampage" Jackson dominated Matt Hamill on his way to a clean Unanimous Decision victory. Rampage punished Hamill with excellent striking combinations, displaying an improved striking skillset.
Still, Hamill proved he's one of the toughest fighters in the UFC Light Heavyweight division, by withstanding the pressure, answering with striking combinations of his own. The biggest (and the only) surprise was the fact that Matt Hamill failed in all of his takedown attempts. Rampage managed to keep it standing, forcing Matt Hamill to fight according to his rules.
It was Jackson's second consecutive victory since the defeat against Rashad Evans at UFC 114, as the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion finds himself on the radar for a shot at Jon Jones' UFC Light Heavyweight title. Rematch against Machida could be an interesting solution to the UFC 205 puzzle, with Rashad Evans facing Phil Davis in the main event of UFC 133.
