Jackson Disses Griffin

Very recently, Quinton Jackson spoke with Fighters Only and had some revealing things to say – the most notable being his lack of respect for current UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin:

On fighting Mauricio Rua:

“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.”

Jackson on his recent loss to Griffin:

“I just want my fans to know, I was at my worst and Forrest was at his best – and I still beat him. 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’. I’m not a sore loser, shit happens. 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 speaking of losing respect for Griffin:

“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’. 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.”
