Hendo thinks Rampage just showed up to get paid

(Maybe he’s just being a crabby old man?)

Dan Henderson is currently stuck in superstar limbo. All the big fighters he wants to fight are already booked up, leaving him with options like Lil Nog and Machida. Not that there’s anything wrong with those guys, but when you’re hot sh*t like Hendo, you don’t just take the first or second or third palooka the UFC offers you. Especially when a nice long vacation actually increases your chances of getting an immediate title shot.

It does sound like Dan is looking forward to the future though. Check out what he tweeted during the Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson / Ryan Bader fight at UFC 144:

Good round for Bader. Rampage has never been the smartest fighter.

Might be just me but rampages stomach is hanging out past his dicky do. Not really ably to get aggressive.

Bader fought great. Nice job. Quinton looks like he just showed up to get paid.

Oh snap. And extra points for snap accuracy. I too noticed the gut to dicky do ratio was out of whack, and that Rampage seemed to have left his heart back in the United States.

What purpose could Henderson have for being such a meanie towards Rampage? It couldn’t be to stoke the flames for an eventual rematch, could it? The two clashed in London back in 2007 (the heady days when the UK still got title fights) and Quinton managed to outwrestle Dan for a unanimous decision win. It was one of the best performances we’d ever seen out of Rampage, and probably not the kind of thing he’s capable of recreating nowadays.

Hendo meanwhile has gone from being called Decision Dan to Hollywood Henderson. He’s got that H-Bomb finisher and he just starched Fedor Emelianenko. Not only would a fight with Quinton Jackson be an excellent chance to avenge that earlier loss, but it’d make Dan a buttload of money and raise his profile ever higher into the stratosphere. I know he really wants to get his ass kicked by Anderson Silva or Jon Jones, but there’s no way he can’t look at the low hanging fruit of a Rampage Jackson rematch without drooling at least a little.

    not interested in that. stop saying these things.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    It seemed as though he dropped the Decision Moniker when he started having veins on his chest and abs.

  • agentsmith

    Decision Dan had far, far less testosterone than Hollywood Henderson.

  • CAP

    He ain’t getting any younger, book Danno with something. Something fierce.

  • Reverend Clint

  • noiseless

  • kwagnuth

    I can’t say I would be too pumped for that fight myself.


    Rev you are one racist cunt.

  • Reverend Clint

    i know

  • G Funk

    “Jap” is not racist you sensitive soft moist vagene.

  • Grappo

    yeah it kinda really is, but since being on here for so long I’ve learned to not give a fuck.  on here at least.  it’s pretty much equal opportunity racist lingo round here, but not usually meant seriously

  • G Funk

    We’ve been through this before my yellow friend and Hyan even had to settle you down. Jap is just an abbreviation of Japanese. Like Jew to Jewish, Mex to Mexican and black to blackishnesses.

  • iamphoenix

    jap stick is applied to the lips.

  • kwagnuth

    I just made an observation and expressed my opinion. Sorry you got your panties in a twist funk.  

  • Grappo

    Hyan even had to settle you down.

    Please refresh my memory on this. 


    Jap is just an abbreviation of Japanese. Like Jew to Jewish, Mex to Mexican and black to blackishnesses.

    Not to Japanese it isn’t.  Or rather, Japanese-Americans.  Japanese-Japanese don’t give a fuck.  Japanese-Americans are the ones that have to deal with assholes calling them and their family members japs/chinks/gooks/whatever other slurs they know (and they wouldn’t be using it if they didn’t know it was a slur) while they beat the shit out of them.

    What do you think people still say to me when they want to start some shit?  On the internet, don’t care anymore.  IRL = teef knocked out.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    I believe its’ what Amercians called Japanese-Americans as we threw them in internment camps.

  • iamphoenix

    there was this nco in korea who has half white and korean. he called koreans gook. I learned a new word that day.

  • Reverend Clint

    somebody needs to change their name to Groucho

  • Grappo

    eh, I said I don’t care about it online anymore.  I have to thank you guys for making me less sensitive in that regard.  but for those that say it isn’t a racial slur, well, I just have to give my perspective as someone who knows, and has dealt with it being used as a slur against me and my family since I was a little kid.  The shit even has a wikipedia page.  Not saying you guys are intending it in a racist way, but to say that it’s just a shortening of Japanese like Jew is to Jewish is way off the mark


  • G Funk

    Ah race convo’s always bring out intriguing views. Interesting how an abbreviation gets thrown in with nigger/gook/ex. which are terms created out on it’s own and understandably offensive. Whoever used Jap in a derogatory sense lacks creativity and originality. Though I’m no terms in history  major, I’m pretty sure Germans were calling Jewish people “rat jew” before they baked them like chicken pot pies (you guys see that advertisement at the top of the page for chicken pot pies at KFC? mmmm) Yet I don’t know any Jews that get pissy and offended when they hear “jew”, and jews are some of the most sensitive folk around.

    Listen Grapps, all Im saying is that Jap shouldn’t be taken racially offensive because a group of dumbasses who disliked Japanese people at one point in history shortened a word to make it easier to refer to them. The wiki page link talks about how pre WW2 America used it lovingly, and currently it is not an offensive word outside the states. And it certainly shouldn’t be thrown in with Gook. But I guess each person has a right to be offended by whatever word or abbreviation they want. I for one am offended by the words god, penis, anus and cub when they’re spoken in that order.




  • glassjawsh

    show me a white person that gets offended by being called a whitey (or honky or cracker) and I’ll show you a racist.

    yes I’m implying grapponese is a racist (abd should be ashamed)

    Listen Grapps, all Im saying is that Jap shouldn’t be taken racially offensive because a group of dumbasses who disliked Japanese people at one point in history shortened a word to make it easier to refer to them.

    You mean the entire country?  I understand your point, but you’ve gotta see things from the other side.  It wasn’t just a shortening even back then, but part of a larger overarching propaganda campaign to dehumanize and demonize “the enemy” (hundreds of thousands of which lived in this country at the time, and many were American citizens).   It became the word that symbolized every ugly caricature and negative stereotype that the government and media was foisting on the population, and the connotations carry over to this day.

    I don’t expect that most people that use the word have a real understanding of the history, they either know it’s a slur and use it for that purpose, or they just don’t really care enough to stop using it because Japanese-Americans are such a minority here that they don’t even factor.  Racial insensitivity towards Asians and Native Americans (and now Middle Easterners) kinda seems to get a pass in this country, at least in comparison to the more abundant and diffuse minority groups that live here.

    I’m not offended by the word itself of course, but more the intent behind it in most cases, or the smug indifference I’ve come across from people who haven’t had their lives adversely affected by overt racism.  Anyways, it’s a pleasant surprise to be able to have a discussion like this on fightlinker of all places.

    What about Japland is that an abbreviation too. Glass you forgot White devil, squatters and 7th generation immigrant.
