Matt Hamill’s Coach: Rampage Jackson an "Easier Fight Strategically"

Matt Hamill and his manager / trainer Duff Holmes talk to MMA Junkie:
Matt Hamill - "I'm glad (Quinton Jackson)'s so motivated. He won't have any excuses when I beat him. I will prove I belong in the title mix at 205 (pounds). 'Rampage' is an old-school brawler. I'm much more of a complete mixed martial artist. I have the heart to break his will, and I will make 'Rampage' very uncomfortable in this fight."

Duff Holmes - "It won't affect our preparation at all. If anything it will be an easier fight strategically than preparing for Phil Davis. It's no secret that 'Rampage' likes to stand and bang. I think Matt has the chin to take his best shot, the power in his hands to answer, and the skills and strength to put him in some bad situations on the ground."
