While there has been much talk questioning Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s desire, the former UFC light heavyweight champion will have none of it. He sharply answered criticisms of his approach to fighting, challenging anyone to question what they see when he’s in the Octagon fighting.

Many observers point to the distractions of his acting career – he recently starred in a feature film remake of the 1980s television series “The A-Team” – Rampage says acting has nothing to do with his day job… fighting.

“I got a whole bunch of movies coming up, they ain’t got nothing to do with my day job,” he retorted at a UFC 135 kickoff presser earlier this week. “I turn down movies all the time to fight. This is my day job. This is what pays my bills and puts my kids through college and stuff.

“This is my life. I don’t lack any passion. This is what I do.”

Check out the video of Rampage’s retorts when MMAWeekly.com‘s Ken Pishna brought up those who question his desire…

Rampage squares off with current champion Jon Jones in the main event of UFC 135 on Sept. 24 at the Pepsi Center in Denver.
