When Quinton "Rampage" Jackson lost his UFC light heavyweight title to Forrest Griffin in July and then was arrested and hospitalized in a couple of bizarre incidents shortly afterward, I was concerned that we had seen the last of Rampage in the Octagon.
So as someone who loves watching Rampage fight, I'm delighted that everything I'm hearing about Rampage heading into his fight with Wanderlei Silva at UFC 92 is that he's in good shape, both physically and mentally.
The latest report comes from The Telegraph, where Rampage's British trainer Anthony McGann talks about Rampage's fitness:
"You will never have seen the Rampage you're going to see at UFC 92. This is Rampage who has been training with top sparring partners and top experts in all the various fields, top conditioners, top strength and diet experts."
There's also good news regarding Rampage's nutrition, which is especially important because he says his delirium in that bizarre July incident was caused by being dehydrated and malnourished.
