'Rampage' Jackson on Shannon Briggs: 'I gotta shut his old ass up'

The former UFC light heavyweight champion wants to prove that the former two-time world heavyweight boxing champ shouldn't be calling him out.

Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson and Shannon Briggs have been hilariously jabbing each other on social media for weeks now, entertaining the prospects of both a boxing bout and MMA fight.

So, is the aggression toward each other real? Jackson attempted to explain just that when asked about it during a recent appearance on the DAZN Boxing Show .

"I like laughing. Yeah, it's funny. I'm alive," Jackson said. "But some of them (insults), some of them you know hurt my feelings."

All jokes aside, the 43-year-old Jackson doesn't think that the 49-year-old Briggs should be calling him out at all.

"From what I know, Shannon hasn't fought over five years," Jackson continued telling Ak and Barak. "He smokes a lot of cannabis. He call it Shannon-buss.

"He just old. He got one foot in in a nursing home. He shouldn't be calling me out. 

"I'm older too. But he older than me. My last fight was New Year's 2020 even though you can't really call it a fight because I got my ass knocked out within like first two minutes or so. But I still was in training camp."

The former UFC light heavyweight champion is referring to the first-round TKO (punches) defeat he suffered at the hands of Fedor Emelianenko back in December 2019. Jackson has lost three of his last four fights.

Meanwhile, Briggs, a former two-time world heavyweight champion, hasn't fought since a first-round KO of Emilio Zarate back in May 2016 for his 60th career victory.

As the two continue to trade shots on social media, 'Rampage' is banking on a fight soon.

"We gonna get in there," he said, "I gotta shut his old ass up."
