“That fight was so close, it was unfair for Machida,” Quinton “Rampage” Jackson told UFC broadcaster Joe Rogan after the fight. “Even though I don’t want to, I have to give him a rematch.”
“That’s gonna be up to the UFC, but I’d like an immediate rematch also,” said the Lyoto Machida after losing a split decision. “We’ll just have to see what the UFC has to say.”
However, UFC President Dana White had firm words to say about an immediate rematch..
“No. No. As far as I’m concerned, and apparently, as far as the judges are concerned, Rampage won that fight."
“I don’t play favorites. I call ‘em like I see ‘em. (Rampage) won two rounds. It’s a three-round fight. You won two of them, he won one of them. You’re the winner,” he said, squashing any speculation about an immediate rematch.
Asked what he thought was next, Jackson said “This ain’t my show. I don’t own the UFC homey. I just fight here.”
