Former enemies inside the Octagon, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has nothing but respect for Wanderlei Silva outside of it.
Silva recently sent out a video message detailing his issues with the UFC and all the hoopla surrounding his decision to not take a drug test earlier this year. In the lengthy video, “The Axe Murderer” says he has no desire to compete anymore.
