Rampage Jackson trashes Chael Sonnen for not being able to back up his trash talk

Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson discusses Chael Sonnen using his mouth to get fights that he doesn't deserve.

Quinton Jackson was interviewed by Bas Rutten on HD Net's Inside MMA episode that aired last night and had a lot to say. But the most interesting portion of the interview came from where Rampage set his sights on fellow UFC fighter Chael Sonnen.

Here's what Rampage had to say about Sonnen:

His mouth gets his him fights. What's his name? How do you say his name? 'Chael?' His mouth gets his ass in trouble. The dude is exciting for like two minutes, but then you just wanna turn down the volume, like, 'What the hell you talkin' about?' He sounds like he practices his stuff in the mirror, and then he goes out and says it. He's a great wrestler. That's all I'm gonna say, 'cuz everything else sucks. He can't punch hard. Look what he did to Anderson Silva. He did a great job holding him down, making a boring fighter out of a decorated champion, for five rounds. After the fight, I see that Anderson Silva didn't have a mark on him. Not a mark.


I talk trash, but I talk trash about people I'm actually gonna fight -- people in my weight class. This guy, he talks trash about ring girls. He talks trash about the President. Now, that's a little bit too much. He's very disrespectful. I don't like the guy. For real. The stuff he says about me. I like to joke around as much as anybody, but, for real, if I see Chael Sonnen, and he says anything to my face, I don't know if I'm gonna smack him or not. I don't know. I don't like the guy.
