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!

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?
