Rampage Jackson has never been one to mince words. He has not been happy with his recent opponents in the UFC because he feels all the guys he is given to fight are wrestlers who want to "hump" him. Which is why he feels that UFC matchmaker Joe Silva "needs to be slapped in the face."

This bold statement from the colorful MMA legend came during a phone conversation with HDNet's Bas Rutten. You can really feel Rampage's frustration during the call, which I have for you after the jump. Rampage likes to bang, and he likes opponents that feel the same way, but the fact is that wrestlers are dominating the UFC, which sometimes makes for less than exciting fights. The Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis "grapplefuck" is a good example.

In the conversation with Bas, Rampage also talks openly and honestly about his use of testosterone. He'd made a statement previously that he was on TRT, but Dana White later said that Rampage had backed off the statement. In the Bas interview, Rampage says that he is not backing off, and is on TRT.

Very wide ranging and interesting interview with one of the sports most exciting fighters. Check it out.
