Quinton Jackson beat Wanderlei Silva in their fourth career meeting via second-round TKO on Saturday night at Bellator 206. The time of the finish of the co-feature bout at SAP Center in San Jose was 4:32 of round two.
Although Quinton Jackson made it clear that he wants to fight Silva for the fifth time, he is still upset over getting knocked out of the heavyweight Grand Prix tournament and now Jackson wants to redeem himself, and he plans to stay in shape just in case a participant drops out.
“I’m very disappointed that I lost in that tournament,” Jackson said. “No disrespect to Chael (Sonnen), because honestly, I’ve been thinking about that. It really bothered me.”
“I know you guys don’t know me that well, what type of person I am, what type of mind I got, but it really bothers me that Chael outsmarted me.”
Rampage said he trained wrestling for his fight against Chael Sonnen, but Sonnen outsmarted him.
“He outsmarted me by standing up with me,” Jackson said. “And that’s my type of fight. I like standing up with a mother(expletive). I’m a (expletive) wrestler, but I like standing up. Chael outsmarted me. I was disappointed. I thought I was going to win that tournament. I thought I was going to take everybody.
“So yeah, I’m going to stay in shape. If somebody gets hurt, I want back in. But if anything, I want the winner of the tournament. I want the heavyweight belt.”
