Most people know Quinton “Rampage” Jackson these days as B.A. Baracus from the movie “The A-Team.” Saturday night in Las Vegas, Jackson proved he’s still a force in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Jackson scored a unanimous decision over Matt Hamill.
Although he easily controlled the fight, the MGM Grand crowd booed Jackson over what they percived as a lackluster performance. Now that he’s an entertainer, fans may have been expecting more. Jackson defended himself by pointing out that he entered the fight with a broken hand. That, he says, was the real reason there was no knockout of Hamill.
Also victorious Saturday was former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir. He beat the fat, yet popular, Roy Nelson. Most fans remember Nelson as the winner of Season 10 of the UFC reality tv show “The Ultimate Fighter.” That was the most-watched season of the popular UFC-based show, mainly because of the appearance of novelty act Kimbo Slice. Nelson easily defeated Slice in that series. Saturday, Nelson was no match for Mir. Although, in fairness, Mir wasn’t exactly looking svelte himself.
Other UFC 130 winners included Travis Browne, Rick Story, Brian Stann and Demetrious Johnson.
