“Rampage” Jackson on Matt Hamill: “He wants me? Well, he can have me.”

Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has finally warmed up to the idea of facing Matt Hamill at UFC 130 on May 28th in Las Vegas, Nevada after finding out the top-rated wrestler asked for this fight to happen over the past week.

Jackson’s manager, Anthony McGann, speaking via Yahoo!Sports.com, said:

“We found out that Matt Hamill actually requested to fight Rampage. His camp pushed hard for it turning down other possible opponents. When Quinton found this out, his opinion rapidly changed on Matt Hamill.”

Matt’s strategically aiming at Quinton with the words if he takes out the ex-champ then he’s in the mix for a shot. Those are brave words considering Rampage just beat (Lyoto) Machida. So the fight is set for May 28, Rampage doesn’t take lightly to being called out.”

“We were given Hamill on the May show and initially Quinton was disappointed. Matt just wasn’t one of the guys he has been focusing on. He really wants Rashad again or Stephen Bonnar because both guys are disrespectful to him. He respects Matt as a tough opponent and he believes that Matt is someone who will put on a show which is what he loves to do. He just had never paid him no mind until Joe Silva offered him.”

Jackson, speaking via Yahoo!Sports.com, said:

“He wants me? Well, he can have me. I’m gonna knock him into tomorrow.”
