Cosmo Alexandre Out-Slugs Wayne Parr to Win Super Middleweight Title on AXS TV FIGHTS’ 300th Broadcast, ‘Lion Fight 25’

LOS ANGELES – Oct. 23, 2015 – Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson joined AXS TV’s INSIDE MMA in studio tonight for an interview with series hosts Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten. During their discussion, Jackson shared his thoughts on former champion Jon Jones’ reinstatement to the UFC today.

Said Jackson:

“I hope he comes back. I hope he learns from his mistake…. But I’m not saying it because I’m a fan of Jon Jones because honestly I think that Jon Jones is bad for the sport, because when he fights people, he injures us. He kicked my knee backwards, my knee is never the same. He’s done it to a couple other guys. I saw him rip one guy’s shoulder out his socket. We just try to the same thing he’s trying to do, earn a living and do the sport that we love. We don’t go in there to try and injure people, even though I tried to fold an opponent in half, but he made me angry, it was something that he did to me, I had a history…. But this guy’s doing it to every opponent. He’s kicking their knees backwards and really trying to hurt people. So I think that’s bad for the sport.”
