Quinton Jackson gave his opinion on former professional boxer Shannon Briggs. “Rampage” suggested that while he found Briggs boring, he didn’t hate the boxing veteran.
Jackson clarified that he was not friends with Shannon Briggs. The former UFC star also criticized Briggs for what he believed to be “The Canon” ‘s excessive use of the slogan “Let’s go, champion!” “
In an edition of MMA time with Ariel Helwani, UFC and Bellator veteran Quinton Jackson opened up on several topics. Helwani noted that he thought “Rampage” and Shannon Briggs were friends. The reporter added that Jackson and Briggs are too funny together and their chemistry is off the charts.
Quinton Jackson agreed with Helwani’s opinion that they were funny together, but stressed that he intended to fight Shannon Briggs. “Rampage” said:
“I think a lot of people think that because I love to laugh. Like, if he says something funny, I’ll laugh. And I’ve never met another fighter who can go back and forth with me, like making fun of each other and stuff like that. You know, he’s an a *** ole? Yes. Is it boring? Yes. Do I hate the guy? No. But, you know, we’re not friends. You know, I think he’s got a big mouth, and I want to shut him up. But this is a first for me; someone who can actually talk shit and (be) funny with it. But the guy is annoying. He says ‘Let’s go, champion!’ way too fucking king. I don’t know how his wife put up with it, or his kids, or whoever lives with him. How do they do?”
