Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson has once again reiterated that he will leave UFC after his next fight, adding that his final opponent will not be a "coward".
Speaking on HDNet's Inside MMA, Jackson said he would much prefer his last UFC bout to be against a fighter who has beaten him in the past, and quite strongly put both Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua and Forest Griffin in the frame.
Jackson and Rua traded wins at Pride 29 and PRIDE Grand Prix 2005 seven years ago, while Griffin won a unanimous decision at UFC 86 in 2008.
"I would love to fight somebody like 'Shogun', somebody like Forrest. Somebody who beat me before. Somebody who wants to put on a good fight," he said.
What Jackson doesn't want is to bow out of UFC against a "coward": "I'm tired of fighting these guys who are cowards. I call them cowards. They just run around the cage, they game plan and they take you down. It's okay to take people down, but they just hump you and lay down on top of you the whole time. That's what's disgusting to me."
Jackson's last two fights came at UFC 144 in February and UFC 135 in September. In the former, Ryan Bader took the win via unanimous decision, while in the latter Jackson was submitted by Jon Jones's rear naked choke.
Following the Bader bout, Jackson took to Twitter to voice his frustrations, subsequently asking for his UFC release. He claimed UFC officials told him he had "lost his appeal".
