The MMA fan community was largely underwhelmed when news of a match between Matt Hamill and Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson first emerged, especially as it replaced previous rumours of fights with Shogun Rua or a rematch with Rashad Evans.

Jackson’s manager says he and his fighter were equally underwhelmed initially. But he claims Hamill has since been discovered to have been requesting Jackson specifically and says this has lit a fire for a fight they previously considered “disappointing”.

“We were given Hamill on the May show and initially Quinton was disappointed. Matt just wasn’t one of the guys he has been focusing on. He really wants Rashad again or Stephen Bonnar because both guys are disrespectful to him,” Anthony McGann told Yahoo! Sports.

“We found out that Matt Hamill actually requested to fight Rampage. His camp pushed hard for it turning down other possible opponents. When Quinton found this out, his opinion rapidly changed on Matt Hamill.

“Matt’s strategically aiming at Quinton [by saying] if he takes out the ex-champ then he’s in the mix for a shot. Those are brave words considering Rampage just beat [Lyoto] Machida. So the fight is set for May 28th – Rampage doesn’t take lightly to being called out.
