It was perhaps the simplest question during a gathering that at times was more frat party than media event.

But it produced the most meaningful exchange during a pre-event media tour ahead of UFC 135.

Asked by a fan how the fight would go – without getting into game plan, of course – light-heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones (13-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) was interrupted by Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (32-8 MMA, 7-2 UFC).

"You know who he is – c'mon man," Jackson said today at the Pepsi Center in Denver, which also hosts the pay-per-view UFC 135 event on Sept. 24. "Who been standing with me, dog? Everybody been wrasslin' me, dog. You already know, player."

It was one of many interruptions from the former champ, who bounced between the role of class clown and frustrated MMA veteran as questions about his motivation to fight surfaced.

On the other side of the podium, Jones kept a mostly stoic exterior as he responded to persistent attacks about a perceived cockiness as the second-youngest champion in UFC history.

Jones humility always seems to be at the ready, IMO it feels contrived

I didn't know Rampage had any humility as well.....little brother is going to put big brother over his knee and give him a thorough spanking.

And afterwards, Rampage can film The A-Team II

I hope and pray that Rampage can pull this one off....but in reality...I think he is going to get hurt.

Bones is a specimen at 205 and is seemingly unstoppable at the moment but I am no longer on his wagon and I can only pray Rampage lands a haymaker on him.

My prediction: Bones via submission in the second.

My wishes: Rampage by knock out in the first.

Bones looks like a kid who has very little respect for anyone. I pray to his God that he be knocked out by Rampage. Amen.

Rampage reminds me of Sonnen, but without the hyperbole. I think he's in Jones head.

Here's a link to an interview for a radio station done on the same day. The second portion is where the real gold is.

It was gold indeed.

Jones travels with the belt because he wants to spend as much time with the belt as he can before he loses it - Rampage. Gold!

I had a lot of respect and admiration for Jones in the beginning, but his words and actions have led me to dislike him. While I believe Rampage can knock him out, I think Jones will be too much for him, standing or otherwise.

Hahaha yall can just keep praying cause Rampage has absolutely no shot at winning this fight. But go ahead and keep praying cause God is the only one that can help him now. You prolly should start praying for his health rather than the win though.

Rrrright.

Will I pick him? No. But to say he as no shot is ludicrous.

Jones seems a little out of his element having to sit across from Rampage who is so comfortable with press, and VERY quick witted. Its kinda hard to woo fans when you keep recycling the same (albeit truthful) garbage about God, and hard work, etc. etc... Jones why are you so guarded with us?? we Love you!!

Yall act like Rampage continues to knock people out! 6 of his last 7 fights have went to decision, and he hasn't looked that impressive in any of them besides the one KO against Wanderlei. Rampage ain't hungry anymore; he knows he can make easier money on the big screen. So Bones is gonna do him a favor and turn him into a permanent movie star.
