Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson appeared on "Inside MMA" on Monday, and aired out his feelings on Chael Sonnen. While talking about Jackson's plans to fight Glover Teixeira in the last bout on his UFC contract, he also mentioned how he didn't like Sonnen being "disrespectful" and talking smack but not backing it up.

"What's his name? Chael? Chael's mouth gets his [expletive] in trouble," Jackson said. "The dude is exciting for, like, two minutes, and then you just want to turn down the volume. It's like he practices his stuff in the mirror that he goes out and says. He's a great wrestler. That's all I'm going to say, because everything else sucks.

Jackson has never faced Sonnen, but you could see why he would take offense to Sonnen getting a title shot in his first light heavyweight bout. Though he came to the UFC as a highly decorated fighter in Pride, he still had to fight Marvin Eastman in the UFC before getting a shot at Chuck Liddell and his belt.

But, ripping Sonnen isn't the only thing Jackson did on Monday. He also tweeted a link to raise money for a girls' basketball program in California.

So there you go -- a little trash talk and a little fundraising. Jackson had a pretty full Monday.
