Rampage Is ‘Not Excited’ About Hamill Match-Up


(You’re joking, right?He used a fake penis for his urine test? Doesn’t that make him gay?)

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson was on MMAFighting’s The MMA Hour yesterday and he expressed his distaste with being paired up with a replacement Matt Hamill at UFC 130 when  his original opponent Thiago Silva was forced off the card after being suspended for falsifying a urine test to hide steroid use.

“Thiago Silva is the type of guy I would love to fight because he has great stand up and he comes to fight most of the time, so I was looking forward to fighting a guy like that,” Jackson explained. “Matt Hamill wasn’t on my radar at all. I wasn’t excited at all. But then again, not a whole lot gets me excited.”

Hammil has been quoted as saying he plans on breaking the former UFC light heavyweight champion’s will, and in the video above, besides eating Greek twice a week, he says that he plans to do so on the feet.

Jackson scoffed at the notion.

“He’s just got to jive himself up so he actually thinks he can stay with me. If you’ve seen my fights over history, I don’t think my will gets broken too often for anybody to even say that. Matt Hamill is a great wrestler and stuff like that, but I’ve got more experience than him and I’ve fought a lot tougher people than he’s fought,” he pointed out. “He’s got a while to go before he can say he can break anybody’s will.”

He went on to tell host Ariel Helwani that he will be the one deciding the outcome of the bout and that he will do so in emphatic fashion.

“I just know that I plan to go out there and be very aggressive and very exciting,” he said. “That’s all I know.”

Role reversal - Hamill's going to knock Rampage senseless.

I hope Hamill doesn't hear about this

Look at the bright side Rampage! At least you won't break a mitt on Mark's mooshy noggin.

Matt Hamill neglected to mention that Mark Hamill will be in his corner during the fight. Use the force, young Hammer

coulda had these two coach TUF against each other, would that have been awkward? "what the hell did he just say?" that could be a rampage quote or a hamill quote. coulda had a dance contest between these two, that'd be intertaining

at the end of the jones fight, his eyes were so full of blood that I thought maybe he had been blinded.

This fight is more about Quinten Jackson VS Rampage, rather than Quinten Rampage Jackson VS Matt The Hammer Hamill.

Did matt hamill say hes nevered knocked anyone out? he fucking dropped mark munoz and made him eat his own knee. He's very modest, something that I respect. Gunna be interesting considering the experience of striking rampage has compared to hamill, could get hammil dropped, but never know

this has got to be one of the worst matchups in history... i like hamill ..he gots tons of herat.. but lets face it he isnt explosive at all, his wrestling is good..but jackson is going to knock him out most likely..

when did The Hammer go blind to require braille? Everyone knows that only Frank Dux can fight blind. the man is deaf.

@ El Guapo - Your words have brought tears of joy to my eyes.

Fried, Guapo, and Viva...keepin' it reaaalll!

Hamill also said that Rampage was such a bad actor that even he could hear the boos.

Who took mah tayk?

I think it's offensive to the Hammer that half the article is in braille. That would be like doing half a Nick Ring article in gay.

Rampage was hoping to fight Dorothy Hamill, and got Matt instead. I can understand his disappointment.

As much as i would rather see this fight be exciting, i think Hamill's gonna take you down and lay on (control?) you to a decision. How's 'bout them apples...
