LAS VEGAS – There are, as they say, two sides to every story.

In this case, there's Juanito Ibarra's story of how he connected with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and became the UFC light heavyweight champion's trainer.

Ibarra said the men had known each other for years from connections in the fight game and that they had gotten together after Ibarra telephoned Jackson and the two talked, mostly about their religious faith, for two-and-a-half hours.

"It was a very powerful, memorable conversation," said Ibarra, who is convinced Jackson will be at his career peak on Saturday when he defends his title at UFC 86 at Mandalay Bay against Forrest Griffin. "I get (goose) bumps thinking about it."
