“I know he’s gonna be game, but I also see a guy that’s gonna come in a little bit busted up and overtrained. He’s gonna try to get a gameplan that will tire me out, but I see him tiring himself out trying to tire me out. People assume for some strange reason that I don’t have cardio so they try to tire me out. So I see a guy who’s pretty smart, but too smart for his own good.”
Forrest has admittedly said that he thought cardio would be one of Rampage’s weaknesses and was surprised at how well he held up going five rounds against Dan Henderson in September. Rampage is going to be extremely tough for Forrest to beat. The only advantage that Forrest has is in the size department. Quinton’s takedowns are better, his wrestling’s better, his combinations are more technical, he has ridiculous power in his hands, and he has proven that he can go five hard rounds against one of the best MMA fighters in the world in Dan Henderson.
Forrest better have one hell of a gameplan to beat him. With Randy Couture in his corner, he most definitely will have a good gameplan, but I somehow doubt it will be good enough to overcome all of Jackson’s advantages.
