The recent influx of top-level talent to the U.K.-based Wolfslair Academy that began with former light-heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson has left many observers scratching their heads.

Until recently, Wolfslair had little notoriety outside of the U.K. But as Wolfslair Muay-Thai coach Dave Jackson recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), the talent pool at the camp continues to grow.

"Rampage is coming out tomorrow," Dave Jackson said. "I spoke to Cheick (Kongo) yesterday, and he is coming to train on Sept. 26. We also have guys like Ricco Rodriquez and Tiki Ghosn coming to help out the guys as well. We have a really strong training team assembled at the moment."

While the partnership of U.S.-based fighters to an English camp may seem odd, it is Dave Jackson's experience that has been cited as a crucial factor for Quinton Jackson and Kongo to lead the migration of talent across the Atlantic. A coach since 1986, Dave Jackson impressed Quinton Jackson when installed as part of a training team for "Rampage" in Big Bear, Calif.

The only camp that Ricco should belong to is Weight Watchers.

It's not hate its the truth. I saw him live at Yamma pit fighting and I was in shock how bad he looked considering he was a former champ.
