Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s hands are not injured, haven’t been injured and won’t impact him in his bout for the light heavyweight title at UFC 135 on Sept. 24 in Denver against champion Jon Jones.
But there was enough discussion of the state of Jackson’s hands that it has led the former champion to suspect he has a spy in his midst.
Spygate has come to the UFC.
Jackson said in an interview with Yahoo! Sports on Monday that he made up a story about having a hand injury last week. Yet, four hours after he mentioned the story in his gym, he said his manager received a call from UFC matchmaker Joe Silva asking about it.
Jackson said he first became wary about a spy in his camp during the days prior to his May 29, 2010, fight at UFC 114 in Las Vegas with Rashad Evans. He said he injured his knee in training, but kept it quiet and let no one know. He was pleased when the injury never found its way into the media.
