Rampage Jackson might’ve secured a win against Wanderlei Silva last day at Bellator 206 but he is still fuming about his loss to Chael Sonnen.
Jackson had suffered a defeat to Sonnen in the quarter-final of the Bellator Heavyweight tournament earlier this year. This led to Jackson’s exit from the tournament. In the press conference after Bellator 206, Jackson revealed that the defeat still bothers him.
“I’m very disappointed that I lost in that tournament. 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,” he told.
Jackson also went on to reveal some details about the $30,000 that he owed Sonnen because of his one-way bet.
“I’m a man of my mother(expletive) word. But he never put nothing up. What good is a one way mother(expletive) bet? I’m not going to lie. I want to give him 30 grand, but you know what I did? I went to the strip club three times, and I spent 10 (thousand) each. So there was Chael’s mother(expletive) 30 grand. I put some strippers through college. Y’all laughing, but I’m dead serious. I don’t get no lapdances. I’m not a perv. But I like making it rain, and Chael’s money was all in the air.” (via MMA Junkie)
