‘Rampage’ Jackson Says He Turned Down TUF Spot Opposite Chael Sonnen

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson told MMAFighting.com that he turned down an opportunity to go move-for-move with Chael Sonnen on the next season of The Ultimate Fighter.

Forget TUF. I’m not interested in that. I don’t want to fight Chael. He’s the kind of fighter that I don’t want to fight. He’s a boring fighter that just wants to hump people.

Sonnen and current UFC 205-pound champion Jon Jones were recently announced as the next coaches of the reality series. The two will square off in April.

Jackson has been very outspoken of Sonnen, but it appears he has no interest in a match with the former UFC middleweight contender.

    Of course Rampage shouldn’t ask to be the coach on The Ultimate Fighter.
    A guy who is so irresponsible and loses his temper so quickly shouldn’t be the coach.
    Also, he should be grateful that Dana bailed him out of that Rampage driving and gave him relatively easy opponents.
    Sonnen would ground and pound Rampage to decision win.

    Hwan: yeah u are correct he will hold him down for 3 rounds for the decision win!! sonnen cant fight sure he can win a round or 2 by keeping his opponent on the ground but one uppercut from rampage and its lights out!!!!
