Rampage Jackson: In the main event at Ultimate Fighting Championship 130 in Las Vegas, there was another victory and another excuse by former light-heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson after his win over Matt “The Hammer” Hamill. In the bout, Rampage clearly won all three rounds, but his performance was average at best."I was a 5 out of 10 (on a scale)," Jackson said after his bout. Jackson also revealed he fought with a fractured hand. Once again Jackson's bark was bigger than his bite.
