Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson talks with Fighter’s Only host Gary Alexander on his upcoming bout against Ryan Bader at UFC 144 in Japan. The topic of ‘the perfect world’ situation came up in the conversation which sparked the topic of Joe Rogan giving biased commentary in fights.
“You know he’s got good jiu-jitsu because he’s so biased against jiu-jitsu guys. You can hear it in his voice. Whenever a guy is a jiu-jitsu fighter he’s playing rusty trombone. I don’t think you should talk down, you should be neutral. When I used to fight in PRIDE, watch Bas Rutten and Stephen Quadros on commentary. Those guys were my good friends and you couldn’t even tell when they were doing commentary. We hung out outside of work sometimes, we were good friends but when I fought they weren’t biased towards me. They did their job. They weren’t biased towards skills or anything like that. That’s the way it should be. Sometimes you can hear him because Joe Rogan has one of those girly high-ass voices. I just wanna tell him to shut the fuck up sometimes.”
