Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson Tells INSIDE MMA He Still Wants To Fight

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tonight on AXS TV'S INSIDE MMA, series hosts Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten presented this week's top news and highlights, including exclusive interviews with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, whose upcoming bout with Tito Ortiz was cancelled today, and Gilbert Melendez, winner of what UFC announcer Joe Rogan called "the greatest fight I've ever seen." The episode also featured an in-depth look at the controversial subject of weight cutting through the eyes of UFC fighter Tim Boetsch as he dropped 30 pounds before UFC 166.

Following today's news that Tito Ortiz will miss his upcoming Bellator fight due to a neck injury he sustained while training, INSIDE MMA talked to his planned opponent Quinton "Rampage" Jackson about the news.

Said Jackson about his fight being canceled:

"If I'm going to keep it real, I would have said look, throw another opponent at me and still keep the pay-per-view because I've trained really hard for this. I had my knees fixed, I fixed my injury and I came back. Throw somebody in there like Kimbo Slice, Houston Alexander, anybody that's in Bellator. Somebody different like Tyrone Spong. I don't know, throw anybody in there, I'm ready for anybody. Throw in Chuck Liddell out of retirement. Put the pay-per-view on! I'm ready to go."

Said Jackson about Ortiz' injury:

" I texted Tito to make sure he was okay and he said he's okay and he's out for three months. That's a real serious injury, to your neck, and I hope Tito a speedy recovery. "

Last Saturday, Gilbert Melendez showed off his striking prowess as he defeated Diego Sanchez at UFC 166. Tonight, he joined Rice and Rutten live from his gym in San Francisco and talked about wanting a UFC Lightweight title shot and said what he expects to see from Anthony Pettis versus Josh Thompson.
