Quinton Jackson Not Impressed By Jon Jones, Feels He Can Defeat Him

Francis Specker /Landov

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson believes if given a second shot, he could defeat Jon Jones.

Jackson, however, has just one fight left on his current UFC contract, so that will likely not happen anytime soon.

Jackson appeared on The MMA Hour recently, and discussed Jones, the current UFC 205-pound champion. Jones defeated Jackson last year via submission.

He’s fake. I don’t agree with his fighting style. I think I could beat Jon Jones. I know I can beat him. Jon Jones is the type of guy you have to fight twice. You can mess people up for life kicking their knee back like that and he does it repeatedly, over and over. To me, that has no honor. I take a lot of honor in fighting. He has no honor.

Jones used a front-side-kick to work the lead-leg of Belfort. Several times, Belfort’s knee buckled under the constant attack by “Bones.”

As for his future, Jackson still has one fight left on his UFC contract after having to bow out of a planned meeting with Glover Teixeira due to an injury.

Me being a free agent is looking very promising right now. I’m not in a rush (to sign with anybody).
