Quinton Jackson made another appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night and after watching the episode, it’s clear why “Rampage” gets more invites to appear on late night talk shows than pretty much any other fighter: he’s actually entertaining.
Sure, Chuck Liddell‘s guest spot on Good Morning Texas a few years back had its moments and watching Kirstie Alley imagining Jon Jones as a pork chop during The Tonight Show a few months back was funny, if not somewhat cringeworthy, but Jackson always seems to bring his ‘A’ game when the cameras are rolling.
Last night was no exception.
From talking about the challenges of smack talking Matt Hammil ahead of UFC 130 this weekend to working as a bouncer at a Vietnamese bar, Rampage is a natural storyteller with a gift for spinning yarns about even his simplest of experiences.
The UFC should have paid him to teach some of its champions how to do an interview during the Fighter Summit.
