Rashad: I’m going to miss Rampage

Sunday, February 03, 2013

MMA HEAT’s Karyn Bryant talked with Rashad Evans just prior to UFC 156, and got his thoughts on the apparently departed Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

“I’m going to miss Rampage man,” said Evans. “I’m going to miss him a lot. He was a great talent.

“And the sad part for me with Rampage is I don’t think he ever realized how talented he was, you know? And that’s one thing I wish that he would have realized how talented he was. I hope that he rediscovers some things for himself and find out that he is all fighter .”

“He needs to be fighting on the biggest stage right now, and that’s with the UFC, you know, and I hope that him and Dana and the UFC make up and he comes back. I would love to see him compete again he’s one of my favorite fighters, he’s one of those fighters who inspired me to start training, so for him to come back and to really rediscover the fighter that he is and realize the potential, for me it would be great.”
