Quinton "Rampage" Jackson was asked a few questions about Chael Sonnen and he answered them the way you'd expect from him.

In a separate room, at a separate time, with a separate video camera, Sonnen responded.

Here's the clip from Fuel TV:

 

Jackson reportedly has one fight left on his UFC contract -- against Glover Teixeira at UFC 153 in Brazil. Jackson has said he wants out of the UFC after that, but he's also repeatedly discussed his desire to get paid for what he does.

Sonnen floated around the idea of moving up to light heavyweight after losing to Anderson Silva at UFC 148.

If Jackson enjoys getting paid to fight, he won't find a bigger paycheck than the UFC. Do the math, here. Maybe this fight can happen.
