Rampage Jackson neemt het morgen op tegen Ryan Bader tijdens de UFC 144. Rampage woog te veel en moet daarom een deel van zijn gage inleveren. Ryan Bader vraagt zich af of Rampage wel gemotiveerd is.

“I want this. Does he?”

You know, he came in pretty heavy. It wasn’t just a few pounds, you know? So it is what it is really. I’m not going to sit and dwell about it. I came all the way to Japan, I didn’t come here to question somebody and go home. I came here to fight and to fight Rampage, so that’s what we’re gonna do. I took the fight, and we’re gonna fight.”

“Long flight. I trained my butt off,went through a great camp. I feel ready now and now’s the time to go out there and win. Just had to talk it over a little bit and we took the fight immediately. There was no time we were ever saying we weren’t going to take it.”

“You question, did he really take it that seriously? I’ll look back and see if he ever missed weight before. I don’t know if he has. But it kind of puts that in my mind. I want this. Does he?”

“I realy don’t care if he made weight, that’s all on him.”
