Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson continued his verbal assault on the reigning Champion Jon "Bones" Jones, stating that the twenty-four year old star won't fight him "like a man". Jackson accused Jones' coach Greg Jackson of negative tactics, claiming that his extreme gameplanning ruins the sport of Mixed Martial Arts:
"I guarantee you Jon Jones don't fight me like a man. Just like his boy, his old teammate Rashad. He come from a team, the (Greg) Jackson team is the most boring team out there right now. I have to say that right now. Jackson, man, y'all are some boring fighters, dog. Y'all ruining MMA for me, straight up. All these gameplans and all this stuff. GSP was the man before he started training over there with Jackson. I still like GSP but I wish he would go and do his own thing cause GSP is one of the best fighters out there, straight up. And y'all ruining MMA." - Full audio at Mike and Scott Radio Show (via MMAMania.com)
