    26/08/08 - Exclusive: Jackson has 'lost respect' for Forrest


    Rampage Jackson says he hasn’t heard anything from the UFC regarding a rematch with Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua.
    Speaking to Fighters Only earlier today, he said: “I didn’t know anything about Shogun, I was trying to get Wanderlai Silva, I was told I might be fighting him.”

    “But to be honest with you, I don’t really give a damn who I fight, I just want to fight and show the world that Rampage is the best when he gets the best elements around him and the best training.”

    But one fight he definitely does want is a rematch with Forrest Griffin, after losing a controversial decision – and he light-heavyweight belt - to him last month.

    Regarding that fight, he says: “I just want my fans to know, I was at my worst and Forrest was at his best - and I still beat him.

    He added: “A man is not a man if he can’t ‘fess up to when he gets his ass kicked. See me, if I get my ass kicked I am like ‘yeah, I got my ass kicked’.

    However, Jackson says that when he said those exact words at the end of the fight in July, “I was being sarcastic, because I really could not believe that it went the way it did”.

    “I’m not a sore loser, shit happens. But I was hoping that Forrest would be a man and come out and say ‘You know what, I didn’t win that fight’, especially after he watched it.

    “I wasn’t really sure, right at the end of the fight... I know he hurt me and punched me in the face a couple of times but I was bobbing and weaving and making him miss, stuff like that.

    “I was hoping that he would come out later after he saw the fight and say ‘yeah, I saw the fight and I lost that fight.”

    Jackson says that he has “lost a lot of respect” for Griffin in the wake of the fight, largely because the new champion has not been talking of a rematch despite winning the belt in controversial fashion.

    “After the fight, I said ‘I’ve got to give you a lot of respect, because you hurt my leg and you had a good game plan’,” he explains.

    “But now, I don’t respect him as a man. Because if it was me, I would have said, ‘I have to give him a rematch right away, to remove all doubt’.

    “I’m a man and when you fight it’s all about honour. I’m not angry at him or anything, don’t get me wrong, but I’ve lost respect for him as a man.”






    :ugh: not a sore loser my ass. if you know you're a better fighter, then prove it, jackass. don't leave it up to the judges if you're that convinced

    That man has lost it. He lost the fight. 7/7 people watching the fight with us that night thought Forrest won. I didn't need the judges to point it out to me that he won, i knew he won. Never think you have won a fight going into the judges decision. Rampage didn't leave it all in the cage and is regretting it, thinking he was gonna get the decision.

    it was too close to make a definitive call IMO

    after watching it, i thought rampage won (barely), but wouldn't be surprised if forrest got the nod


    again, if he was so convinced that he won that fight, then don't leave it up to the judges

    win or lose, Rampage is the one looking like a douche bag and Forrest is the one wearing a belt.

    He needs to get on meds.

    So basically he lost his respect for Forrest and his strap to Forrest.

    Dude, when I get drunk I sometimes think negative thoughts about like, maybe an ex girlfriend. Can you guys imagine how fucked up Rampage's head must be? That dude is probably so deluded now.

    I kinda want him to come back and get crushed by Shogun and then crushed by Forrest again.

    That guy is losing it, he loses respect because Forest didn't go out of his way to say that he'll take a rematch? Did Forest say he wouldn't rematch or something?

    Talk about backpeddling, he needs a PR guy and fast.
