Chael Sonnen Feels Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson Is ‘Ducking Fights’

Chael Sonnen hasn’t let former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson venture far from his mind.

Sonnen, who recently completed filming for the next season of The Ultimate Fighter, let it be known on Twitter Saturday night that he heard a little rumor. Now, after revealing his thoughts, it would appear that Sonnen believes Jackson is ducking fights.

Jackson was set to face Glover Teixeira earlier this year, but pulled out with a training injury. He also had a fight with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua cancelled to undergo a knee operation. Currently, Jackson is set to complete his UFC contract by facing Texieira in January at UFC on Fox 6.

Sonnen, meanwhile, has a few more months before his next fight, as he will meet UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones in April.
