Rampage Jackson is a motorboating fool

June 1, 2011

&fmt=18

Actor/UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson either gave a lighthearted interview with a female reporter named Karyn Bryant or is a serial sexual harasser. It depends on who you ask. Bryant herself did not appear offended at all when Jackson pretended to motorboat her breasts and threatened to “hump” her. (Watch the above video.)

On the other hand, Maggie Hendricks of Yahoo! Sports was outraged at Jackson and his history of bad behavior towards female reporters. MMA writer Michael David Smith also wrote a story about Jackson’s history of harassing behavior which included this montage of embarrassing video.

Keep in mind Jackson has a history of possible mental illness and was once almost gunned down by LA cops in an insane police chase.

THIS TIME IT MAY BE THE THOUGHT POLICE AND NOT THE REAL COPSWHO ARE AFTER RAMPAGE JACKSON

Actor rules UFC 130 – Fat Guys? Not so much

RAMPAGE JACKSON

Most people know Quinton “Rampage” Jackson these days as B.A. Baracus from the movie “The A-Team.” Saturday night in Las Vegas, Jackson proved he’s still a force in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Jackson scored a unanimous decision over Matt Hamill.

Although he easily controlled the fight, the MGM Grand crowd booed Jackson over what they percived as a lackluster performance. Now that he’s an entertainer, fans may have been expecting more. Jackson defended himself by pointing out that he entered the fight with a broken hand. That, he says, was the real reason there was no knockout of Hamill.

Also victorious Saturday was former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir. He beat the fat, yet popular, Roy Nelson. Most fans remember Nelson as the winner of Season 10 of the UFC reality tv show “The Ultimate Fighter.” That was the most-watched season of the popular UFC-based show, mainly because of the appearance of novelty act Kimbo Slice. Nelson easily defeated Slice in that series. Saturday, Nelson was no match for Mir. Although, in fairness, Mir wasn’t exactly looking svelte himself.

Other UFC 130 winners included Travis Browne, Rick Story, Brian Stann and Demetrious Johnson.

UFC 114 takes place in Las Vegas this weekend.

The top of the card features a bout between Rashad Evans and Rampage Jackson. The winner of that fight will meet UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Shogun Rua for the title. There had been plans for Evans and Jackson to fight earlier but Jackson was busy filming the movie “The A-Team.”British fighter Michael Bisping, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and ex-reality tv star of “The Ultimate Fighter” Diego Sanchez are also on the card.

Although it hasn’t been played up, there are some racial elements to the Jackson/Evans main event. The matchup marks the biggest confrontation between two African-American fighters in UFC history. Evans has called Jackson an “Uncle Tom” and a “Sambo.” Jackson has called Evans “ignorant.”

Fan-favorite Forrest Griffin was originally supposed to be on the UFC 114 card, fighting Nogueira, but had to withdraw due to a shoulder injury.

RAMPAGE JACKSON RETIRES

September 23, 2009

RAMPAGE JACKSON AND DANA WHITE

Steve Cofield of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the feud between UFC president Dana White and fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has gotten so bad that Jackson just announced his retirement. White has taken several shots at Jackson since he decided to make an “A-Team” movie rather than fight Rashad Evans.

Jackson made the announcement on his website. He didn’t just burn his bridges with UFC, he torched and napalmed them. If you thought Milton Bradley dissed Chicago Cubs fans, check out what Jackson wrote about UFC fans on his website. He called them:

 

“dumb ass fans that don’t pay my bills or put my kids through college”

 

Jackson added,

 

“All you hater fans out there can kiss my big black hairy ass.”

 

White responded by saying Jackson is “acting like a baby” in a radio interview he did today. The UFC can’t simply blow off Jackson since he’s one of the coaches and an integral part of their just-taped “The Ultimate Fighter: Season 10” reality tv show.

RAMPAGE JACKSON PLEADS GUILTY

January 9, 2009

 

 

UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage Jackson” likely avoided jail today by pleading guilty to one felony charge of evading a peace officer and one misdemeanor charge of reckless driving in Orange County, California. The charges resulted from Jackson’s famed police chase last July during which he sideswiped several vehicles before being arrested at gunpoint in Newport Beach.

Sherdog.com reports that, in a prearranged plea deal, Jackson will be required to complete 200 hours of community service, receive mental health therapy and pay restitution. The court may apply other conditions on the fighter such as restrictions on Jackson’s alcohol use and order random drug testing.

If Jackson complies with all of these conditions he will have the felony count against him dropped and avoid jail.

FORREST GRIFFIN LEADS DEEP CARD ON UFC 92

FORREST GRIFFIN

UFC 92 takes place this weekend. It features one of the deepest cards in the MMA organization’s history.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship itself is hyping UFC 92 as its best card of the year. It features two championship matches and an incredibly compelling third fight. At the top of the card, Forrest Griffin makes the first defense of his UFC Light heavyweight championship. Griffin takes on Rashad Evans. Both Griffin and Evans are past winners of the popular Spike TV reality show The Ultimate Fighter. Griffin was victorious in Season One over Stephan Bonner. Evans won Season Two of the show.

Also on the card, interim UFC Heavyweight Champion Nogueira takes on longtime UFC veteran and past champion Frank Mir. The winner of that match will face Brock Lesnar for the undisputed UFC heavyweight title.

FRANK MIR

However, probably the most intriguing fight of the evening features the return to the Octagon of former Light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as he takes on Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva. The pair had fought twice previously in PRIDE with Silva winning both events.

It is Jackson’s return to UFC following his breakdowns both inside (against Griffin) and outside the Octagon this summer.

UFC 92 takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Saturday night.

TOO MANY ENERGY DRINKS MADE RAMPAGE JACKSON HEAR GOD

September 1, 2008

QUINTON JACKSON

UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is blaming too many energy drinks for his hit and run incident with Southern California police earlier this summer.

In an interview with the Orange County Register, Jackson says he thought he heard the voice of God speaking to him on the day of the July 15th incident. Jackson says he hadn’t eaten or slept in days prior to running into several vehicles while being pursued by police.

The fighter says he didn’t know where he was and thought he was rushing to save a friend’s life during the police chase. Jackson claims he was delirious. The website SPORTSbyBROOKS says the former UFC champ was consuming energy drinks before the incident.

UFC prez Dana White had originally made the Red Bull defense to Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports.
