Quinton "Rampage" Jackson regrets he did the A-Team moviePosted on May 30, 2010, 09:03 AM by Anton Gurevich
Speaking at the UFC 114 post-fight press conference, Rampage Jackson admitted that taking part in the upcoming blockbuster "The A-Team" hurt his chances to earn a shot at Shogun Rua's newly won UFC Light Heavyweight title. Rampage said "now I can almost regret I did that damn movie", expressing his frustration with being unable to weather the storm against Rashad Evans.
Coming after a long layoff, Rampage struggled to find his trademarked aggression that helped him to win 30 bouts in his Mixed Martial Arts career. Jackson's last fight was against Keith Jardine at UFC 96, as Rashad Evans fought twice since then, against the top Light Heavyweights Lyoto Machida and Thiago Silva.
Rampage may find himself in the cage with "The Dragon" Lyoto Machida in his next fight, in what could be one of the most anticipated striking battles in UFC history. Both fighters are looking to bounce back from defeats in their last fights, with sights on another run at the top of the UFC Light Heavyweight division.
