UFC 114 main event fighters Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans share the same appreciation of Filipino boxer Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao that their boss Dana White does.
According to ABS-CBN a Philippine station, Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans both admire Manny Pacquiao for his fierce courageous style and want to put on a great performance for the fans.
“I know Pacquiao is a great fighter. He is a cool guy. I like the way he fights, and I just want to say to all my Filipino fans out there: come and watch me this Saturday. Don’t go to the restroom. Don’t even blink, put a tape in your eye. The guy is going to sleep any second,” Jackson told ABS-CBN.
“Manny is not afraid to risk it all to win, and that’s a fine line a lot of people afraid to walk that line, where they try to be so clean and they’re afraid to even take a chance, and they never take a chance and they don’t get the dramatic finishes or win,” said Evans on what makes Pacquiao so great.
Both fighters were the center of attention in Las Vegas, and starred in a HBO 24/7 style build up show called UFC PRIMETIME on SpikeTV.
