EXCLUSIVE – Quinton “Rampage” Jackson offered fight with Matt Hamill at UFC 130 on May 28th

February 11, 2011 All MMA News, Exclusives, UFC

MMABay can EXCLUSIVELY confirm that former UFC light heavyweight champion, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has been offered a fight with Matt Hamill for UFC 130 on May 28th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A source close to the man from Memphis revealed the news to MMABay earlier today, adding the fighter wasn’t happy about being offered someone lower down the ranks at 205 pounds and may reject it altogether. A fight with bitter rival, Rashad Evans appears to be off the table for now.

Jackson rebounded from a unanimous decision loss to Evans back in May when he defeated another former champion in Lyoto Machida at UFC 121 in October. Jackson was due to return to the octagon to battle Thiago Silva but as we reported in the previous story a failed drugs test has ruled him out.

As for Hamill, the season three “Ultimate Fighter” cast member is sitting on a five-fight winning streak right now including wins over Tito Ortiz and Keith Jardine. He is also the only man to defeat current number one contender, Jon Jones, albeit via disqualification.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
