“I’d be disappointed not to fight him. It would be a good fight, a fun fight, but mostly because he talked trash. He got me really angry, and I want to fight him just because of that alone. It’s a fight that people want to see. You get your mind wrapped up, and you get your mind so psyched up about fighting a fighter, and then it doesn’t happen, it’s disappointing.
That’s why I hate making a fight personal. At the end of the day, we’re professional athletes, and we get paid to do a job. But when you get to fight someone you really want to fight, that’s like a bonus. You’d almost do it for free. I would have loved to punch him in the face for free.”

— Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans tells Yahoo! Sports that if it were up to him, he wouldn’t mind fighting fellow “TUF 10” coach Quinton “Rampage” Jackson free of charge now that Jackson has opted to retire from the sport in order to focus on acting.

I hope he makes it big, and I’m not being sarcastic. I hope the movie thing works out for him. If that’s what he truly wants to do, and that’s what he feels and that’s what he thinks his career is, I wish him all the luck in the world.”

— UFC President Dana White tells the Carmichael Dave radio show that he wishes former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson genuine luck regarding his decision to retire from MMA and focus on his newfound acting career.
