The UFC stole Rampage’s love of fighting!

Yep, Quinton Jackson is still talking about leaving the UFC. Prepare your brain for this latest collection of twitter quotes, because the logic in them is aneurism inducing:

@kingjamesmma dude I don’t care about this loss! I’m upset with the lack of respect

@OldNickSuperchi the ufc makes billions off us all over the world,n pay us chump change! Boxers r boring but making buckets of money,THINK!

“@OUnab: @Rampage4real Go Rampage! You’re one of the best personality/fighter in mma history, the sport needs u!” @ufc said I lost my appeal

Well I’m hoping the @ufc just let me go so I can do my thang,they took my love of fighting after the Forest fight! #bloodtypeBpositive

@CincyWG89 n this is y I don’t wanna fight 4 them anymore,Pride did the same 2 me!

@skanksideup y u care that its the ufc? I can fight better fights n a diff show!

Goodnight 2 my real fans,I got mad love 4 ya,the rest of yall r sheep!! n u don’t matter 2 me anyhow,cause u gonna buy my fights anyway Fact.”

Don’t you just love that old ‘Boxers are all making tons of money’ argument? Correction: a very very very small number of boxers are making tons of money, and those purses are a big part of why the sport is so gutted. No one’s putting back in, everyone is just taking. The money going into the UFC isn’t just there so Rampage can make 10 million per fight instead of 2 million. There’s a whole infrastructure there designed to handled and grow the business for everyone.

As for the UFC taking Rampage’s love of fighting after the Forrest Griffin match … I totally remember that. Rampage smashed his monster truck up across the OC and got himself committed to a crazyhouse. Dana White stood by the guy, helped him back up onto his feet, and put him in several big money fights. Hmm, I can’t remember exactly where they took his love of fighting but it’s definitely somewhere in there.

I’m fully expecting this latest stupidity to blow over by the time Rampage has his ‘last UFC fight’, but wouldn’t it be entertaining to see what these better fights in other organizations are?

    I hope they call him up and say “you want to be released? You got it. Have a nice life” and hang up the phone.

    I’m over this guy’s drama queen antics. Fuck him.

    its never quintons fault. bratty whiney bitch. Stopped caring about his fights after evans. We are all hanging onto a page of old. that rampage is long gone.

  • Reverend Clint

    sounds like jesus fever has infected rampage again

    rampage vs fedor in a hw fight

    I’d be willing to bet a slap in the face that rampage would show up to that fight heavier than fedor

  • Mixed Martial Adam

    As dumb as Quinton is, he must have some even dumber people surrounding him. Can no one explain to him that he’s at the end of his career and currently in the ONLY organization capable of making him significant money?

    The UFC should let Quinton go entertain other offers from Bellator or BAMMA just to see exactly how green the grass is on the other side. But then Jackson would just blame the UFC for letting him go…

    Guy’s crazy, no two ways about it. On or off the energy drinks.

    Wow, what a self-absorbed sack of shit.

  • agentsmith

    He was complaining before the fight that opponents like Bader and Hamill don’t interest him and it’s not what the fans want to see.  Which is true, but losing to guys like Bader doesn’t make fans want to watch you at all.

    Shogun apparently wants a fight with Rampage, I say give him his wish.

  • CAP

    Yeah this act is getting old.

    Shogun please.

  • G Funk

    It should’ve been vs. Shogun in Japan.
