"I hate fighting people who are scared," Jackson told the ESPN UFC Podcast. "When you fight somebody who is scared you never know what they're going to do. They turn and run.

"That's why I'm gonna go to boxing. I'm gonna try boxing because they've got to stand with you. If I get knocked out I don't care because at least it's a fight.

"I've tried a lot of boxing, I'm falling in love with boxing and I know I can put butts on seats over there."

- Quinton "Rampage" Jackson

I hope so. I'm already pretty pissed about Badr Hari making the switch.

Imo Boxing is a much better suit for him.

He would get picked apart round after round by an elite boxers jab.

When you fail to evolve as a fighter, the sport will pass you by. We may be seeing that here. Don't get me wrong, Page can still beat slit of these LHW's but his ground game shows no signs of improvement and guys know that. Same with leg kicks.

Evolving as a fighter is still a pretty new thing, and so are complete fighters. Page is from an era where guys with 1 or 2 good skills(wrestling/boxing in his case) were enough to make you a contender at the very least. There weren't MMA gyms in every city so fighters had to go to a separate gym for each discipline, whereas the fighters now are getting everything under one roof. Unfortunately for the old guard of MMA, it's not easy to teach an old and successful dog new tricks when he had that success prior to the sport changing around them. I'm not saying you're wrong at all, I'm just rationalizing why he hasn't evolved.

I agree with what your saying. Rampage is 33 now and he is from the old era. But Randy Couture was as well and he improved his ground game, game planning, cardio, and head and body movement. He was a completely different fighter style wise when he retired then when he started. I believe, in this sport at least, your constantly learning and improving. I just don't think Rampage wanted to put the time in.
