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!
