Dana White on Rampage’s Boxing Aspirations: “The Grass is Always Greener”


(Props to MMAWeekly.) 

You can say what you want about Dana White when it comes to title fights, but the man never beats around the bush when it comes to his fighters. In a recent interview, “The Baldfather” spoke in typically frank fashion when asked about former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s claims to pursue boxing at the end of his UFC contract on the heels of his fourth round submission loss to current champ Jon Jones at UFC 135. A few highlights from the interview:

On boxing promoter Bob Arum’s claims that the UFC underpays their fighters:You hear [boxing promoter] Bob [Arum] out there: ‘Yeah, they don’t pay their guys anything.’ Rampage got paid for his last fight, trust me. A lot of money. Bob Arum pays guys $600 on his cards. We’ve never paid a guy that, ever. We’ve only been around ten years, Bob’s been promoting fights for 120 years”

On Rampage’s belief that people won’t run from him in the boxing ring: He’ll find out when he starts boxing that [running from opponents is] pretty much the game these days. The game is: Let’s step in there and do everything we can do avoid a fight, so we can get on to the next payday. No matter where you are, no matter what you do, you’re always going to have guys chirping about something.”

On Rampage’s thought process in general: Rampage thought the movie business was the answer to all his fucking dreams and that didn’t work out too good. The pay over there wasn’t what he thought it was, the pay over here was a lot better. A lot better. The grass is always greener until it’s not there any more, and then you realize you made a lot of mistakes and you should have done things differently.”

DW makes some interesting points here, and given Rampage’s history of mental…let’s say shakiness following title fights, it’s hard to judge whether he is truly serious about moving to boxing or just blowing smoke up our ass. What do you guys think? Is Jackson really serious about this move, or is it just a case of his infamous post-loss blues?

    First Florian...now Rampage. Geez, that poor bastard Chuck Liddell got knocked out 4 times at the end of his career and he still wanted to keep fighting (glad he's not for health reasons) but damn. Sounds like quiters and cry babys.

    Considering that strikeforce continues to pay fighters 1k a fight, and we've seen guys in the WEC and even the lower tiers of the UFC were making 1k to 1.5k a fight under the Zuffa banner. DW has selective memory back to even a year or so ago when WEC fighters were making shit under Zuffa.

    With exception of the top 3-4 in each division... the rest make shit. They need to form a fighters association. As for Rampage... I'm a fan but he'll get murdered in boxing.

    The grass may be greener on the under the other side of the fence, but it is decidedly more difficult to mow.

    I don't think it's that weird for guys to want to retire after losing a title fight. Kenny and Page are looking at 3-4 years before they get a chance to win a world title again. It's funny that in other sports, guys catch shit all the time for only being in it for the money. These guys realize their opportunities to be a world champ have past them, and their considering shutting it down. No problem here with it.

    @Xanderschultz-Im not even sure Rampage wants his belt back. I've never heard him say anything about it.

    @Skeletor Hilarious. I also think Jones finally made him an anti black on black crime advocate.

    Of course the fact that can't be argued is the cash is greener. I am sure he much more wealthy after making a movie, and so why not try his hat at boxing? He can always still return to MMA. . I think the bigger issue is that Dana does not want Zuffa fighters, going to boxing...losing, and making the UFC look as foolish as the boxers who have tried to break into MMA. . From Zuffa's position, it best to not have to explain why their MMA fighters can't hang with boxers. It would be real bad for ratings.
