Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson Surprised to Win at UFC 123, Almost Canceled Fight

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson didn’t think he won his match against Lyoto Machida on Saturday until his trainer told him that Jackson had won the first two rounds.

"I really wanted to knock him out so I am kind of disappointed for in performance a little bit because I didn't do everything I wanted to do," Jackson said.

The third round was Machida’s, as he sprung a melee attack on Jackson, earning him his only winning round.

Watch Jackson discuss the match and why he almost had to cancel the fight in the press conference below.
