Quote of the Day: Jackson's Training Camp for Forrest Griffin Was the "Worst Ever"

Vg_cbyte_rampage_2_medium

Ibarra said Jackson’s training camp in Big Bear, Calif., before the Griffin fight was the "worst ever," though he didn’t want to dredge up painful details. But he did say it was difficult to get Jackson to work.

"Do you know how hard it is to get a 200-some-pound adult man out of bed and drag him out so he gets out and does his work and trains?" 

Juanito Ibarra, breaking radio silence on Quinton Jackson.

The entire article linked above is very interesting, though I always caution taking tales from teammates and friends of fighters with a grain of salt.  If all this is true, the amount Rampage accomplished without training hard is astounding, and he may be a force to be reckoned with now that he is training hard.  On the other hand, we have heard this story before over and over from fighters in the past, including Quinton Jackson himself.
