We’ve seen a rather deflated Quinton Jackson in recent interviews, after his legal struggles with Bellator MMA the former Pride FC superstar hinted at retirement this week. Quickly teasing a UFC comeback the day after his chat with Ariel Helwani, ‘Rampage’ then went in to a mini-meltdown with a late night drunk dial to the UFC reporter’s voicemail, and then an hilarious prank call to his old rival Rashad Evans.
Jackson and Evans shared one of the fiercest rivalries in MMA history, and it all came to a head at UFC 114 when the two squared off. During their stint as opposing coaches on TUF (The Ultimate Fighter),’Rampage’ coined the now legendary ‘stanky leg’ phrase in reference to ‘Suga’s’ knockout loss to Lyoto Machida.
The fight itself ended in a decision win for Evans, but Jackson certainly took the points for trash talking his rival. Manufactured or not, the ‘Rampage’-Evans showdown created some all-time classic moments, and it just keeps giving. Jackson’s new found love for playing video games with his Twitch followers has led to another comedy gold segment, as someone has apparently taken the audio from one of ‘Page’s’ online UFC matches and edited it over the UFC 114 main event.
