On Instagram yesterday, Daniel Cormer praised his friend and training partner Muhammed Lawal, and predicted that not only would he beat Quinton Jackson, but would retire him. Of course, Quinton Jackson was contacted about those statements and had some strong words for Daniel Cormier:
“Why do I care about Daniel Cormier?” Jackson asked on Thursday after a short workout in Memphis, his home city. “Is he in my league? He’s just talking ’cause that’s his boy. That’s what people do. I don’t think about stuff like that. That don’t bother me. I don’t care about what other people say. I know what I’m going to do to ‘Mo.’ I don’t care what Daniel says. Daniel can’t get in the cage and fight for ‘Mo,’ can he? OK.”
That’s the part that would make one think “Rampage” doesn’t care. The part that counters that, though, came at the tail end of his meeting with media members.
“Daniel needs to watch what he says before I smack the taste out of his mouth,” said Jackson, a former UFC fighter who has won both his fights by knockout since signing with Bellator in 2013.
