UFC 135 Video: Rampage Jackson Says Jon Jones is Just a Kid Who Can't Handle Fame

MMA Weekly caught up with UFC 135's Quinton Jackson to discuss Saturday night's fight against light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Despite what appears to be an increasingly personal rivalry between Rampage and the champion, Jackson says that this fight isn't that personal. He simply wants his belt back and thinks that Jones is cocky, adding "He's a kid, you can't really expect him to handle fame the way an adult would handle fame."

Here's the video:


There is also another of the increasingly common "Rampage Moments" where he wonders why Jones would want to be so popular in a male dominated sport, suggesting that maybe he "likes bones."

But the more important parts of the interview are Jackson's insight into his preparation. He claims that he has been working with a slew of great wrestlers as he is sure Jones will try to bring him to the ground. But Rampage also says that he has trained a lot of jiu-jitsu in the event that he gets taken down as well as saying he is ready to strike, deal with leg kicks or anything else Jon may decide to try.
