'Rampage' Jackson eying UFC rematches with 'everybody that beat me'

“Honestly, I want to come back and beat everybody that beat me,” Jackson told MMAjunkie. “I want to fight (Mauricio) ‘Shogun’ (Rua), Rashad (Evans), Glover (Teixeira), and make my way back up to Jon (Jones). That’s the honest truth.”

“The last time I fought was last May, close to my hometown; I have no excuses,” Jackson said of his performance. “I wasn’t rusty or nothing. This was the hardest I ever trained in my whole 15-year career of training. (My boxing coach) pushed me to the limits. He pushed me further than I ever knew I could perform.”

“I just think that Fabio is not human,” Jackson said. “I hit that guy with everything and he was asking for some more. I even tried to kick him in the head and I was like, ‘What the?’ I didn’t see think he would see that coming. I didn’t know what to do. I was thinking about blowing my bad breath on him, but I didn’t think that would work either

Jorge Masvidal 'I feel I won that fight'

“I felt I won,” Masvidal said in a video he sent to MMAjunkie. “If Al Iaquinta is sincere with himself, ask him. See if he thinks he won or not.”

“I’m just as pretty as ever,” Masvidal said. Ain’t nothing happen to me. I’m ready to go right now another two, three, four rounds.

“I’m not looking to do a rematch or nothing because I felt like I straight up won that fight.”


“This is not the first time it happens,” Masvidal said. “Probably won’t even be the last. … We keep moving forward.”

Iaquinta ended up lashing out at the crowd in his post-fight speech, as boos rained down from the stands. That’s of little consolation to Masvidal who still ends up with a loss on his record. But he insists there are no hard feelings toward his opponent. Instead, he’s just shocked that judges didn’t see things his way.

“Tough dude,” Masvidal said. “My hat’s off, anyways, to him because he took some amazing shots. I feel I won that fight – from the bottom of my heart. It’s disappointing.”

Jose Aldo predicts 'No. 1 fighter' Chad Mendes over Ricardo Lamas

“I think it is a great matchup,” Aldo told UFC.com. “Ricardo Lamas is coming off a great win, but I think Chad Mendes is the No. 1 fighter in the division. I think he will make his way back to a title fight. I just don’t see anyone beating him. But it is a great fight between two great fighters.”

“If Ricardo Lamas wins, it will be a nice shakeup,” Aldo said. “I would look forward to the rematch as well. I thought he made a funny video of Conor McGregor. Anything can happen. Both are great fighters and I will probably face them again in the future.

“As an actor, Lamas is already the champion.”
