In a recent interview with MMA Elite, Jackson had some choice words for both fellow fighters.
As far as his future goes, Jackson is set to meet Glover Teixeira in Brazil at UFC 153 later this year. That fight will finish out his UFC contract, and his future remains a mystery to most.
Jackson’s first subject matter involved Griffin, the same man who claimed the belt from him. Griffin defeated Tito Ortiz recently, but came under heavy criticism for the result and his post-fight actions.
Tito won. Forrest even knew it; that’s why he ran out of the cage like a little crybaby like he always does. Somebody told him, ‘Forrest, get your (expletive) back to the cage! You won, idiot! We’re gonna give it to you!’ Stupid, man.
On the same card, Sonnen was defeated by UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Sonnen had talked long and hard for two years in the lead-up to the rematch, and Jackson feels like his time is done in the sport.
I think Chael should keep his word and leave the UFC because that’s what he said he was gonna do if he lost. And he lost horribly. Bad! Chael sucks. I can’t stand that boy.
Jackson will try to snap a two-fight losing skid when he meets Teixeira. He has been defeated by Jon Jones in a match for the UFC 205-pound title and to Ryan Bader.
