Just How Troubled Is Rampage? (Pt. 2)

Earlier today, we scratched our heads over Dana White’s strange take on the Quinton Jackson situation, particularly the line:

“Last night when he got out, Rampage is very religious…yeah I’m dealing with it.”

WTF could that possibly mean, right? Well, according to CagePotato’s anonymous insider, it could mean something really freakin’ bad. Our source now tells us the following:

Rampage thinks he’s God…He had a falling out with his trainer a couple of days before the first arrest. Basically he has lost his mind and is talking very religious and is saying that he is God. This is the main thing I wanted to keep hidden, but with the second arrest and Dana talking it will come out regardless. He needs some serious help. I don’t know if you would call it schizophrenia or bipolar disorder or what have you, but whatever it is, basically it’s become impossible to have a conversation with him. He is delusional.

Again, this is second-hand information, and the only way to make a real judgment is to have an actual conversation with Jackson himself. But the chatter is not good.

Sort of related: As of now, Toyo Tires has no official comment on the status of Rampage’s sponsorship with the company, and doesn’t plan to make one any time soon.

Unfortunately, this could possibly be the signs of brain damage. Rampage has had a long career with a lot of brutal fights, my guess is they are are trying to keep this quiet to not tarnish MMA's image. I think when I re-watch Vand Silva beat him in the old Pride days it just won't be as good now.

Come on, be serious. This is "second-hand" information from an "anonymous" source. Let's not send out the hoards to deliver the death penalty just yet. Why not wait for the facts to come out? If Rampage has gone nuts and thinks he's God, you can be sure that it wasn't "religion" that did that to him anymore than the kick to the legs by Griffin. Besides, religion is nothing more than an identifiable set of different in substance than everyone posting on this forum. We all believe in something, whether it's God, evolution, aliens or the Easter Bunny. The only folks who DON'T have a belief system are the dead ones. And for those who say they only believe in themselves...well, then that puts you in the same boat as Rampage, doesn't it: thinking you're God.

Here's hoping that Rampage gets through this and comes out on the other side a better man and a better warrior because of it. I, for one, am anxious to see that rematch with Griffin.

Actually, this is America just so everyone knows. So if people want to practice Christianity or any other religion they have that right. Also, you have the right to voice how much you think its total garbage, but it just makes you seem a little ignorant when you persecute someone for their beliefs.

I would hope you dont persecute based on sex, or ethnicity or skin color, but if you do it for beliefs, you probably do it for all those reasons as well

I think he freaked out because he lost to a white boy.

why does it seem like every time you see a mental reject, they're a religious fanatic?

religion is a bunch of f--king bullshit

Your writing is all over the place...just a rant. Did someone hurt you that is a beleiver? BTW you cannot prove can only acccept or reject the null hypothesis...yes statistics, I know a lot about that and about Jesus, Lord and Savior. I pray Rampage gets help and gets to a better place mentally. Great fighter...the bigger the setback, the bigger the comeback!

Funny how so many people criticize the bible, but have never read it. Try reading it. What is the worst thing that can happen?

chris... being a christian has nothing to do with it him being ill. anyone can get sick, atheist/agnostic/jew/christian. sheesh
Iagreewithmandator- July 27, 2008 at 2:34 am
Preach it man! I went to a call last night (I'm a police officer) during which the wife told me her husband was possessed by demons. While she and her daughter were praying over him in an attempt to exorcise his demons he started spitting in their faces and then locked himself in his room. AFter speaking with the husband, it was pretty obvious that he was loco en la cabeza. They refused to let me Baker Act him but insisted on getting a pastor from church to help with the exorcism.

First thing she asked me when I showed up is if I believed that Jesus was my savior.

I'm not really sure who the crazier person was that night.

i don't think this has anything to do with god or his beliefs... if it wasn't his faith it would be the sandwich he gobbled up yesterday - that spoke to him! ... or his toothbrush that tells him secrets... or something else "crazy"... i know "stuff" happpens in life but this sounds like bull shit... but i guess anyone can publish bull shit "anonymously"... ya know... i'm a chemist by profession... so even though i;m not a lawyer (so i really do not know)... but i think rampage can take people to court for saying this crap IF he can prove it hurt him financially? ...not sure... like i said i'm not a snake lawyer... i have a real degree... but if this IS bull shit... and you... cage potato... are spreading this crap...and if it harms him financially... i think he may have a case... i can only hope so:)

ps...mandator...take a pill... You sound like a preacher...
ChrisC- July 26, 2008 at 10:37 pm
Hey, Mandator. I think you went a bit too far but your argument is well-written and I do agree with you to some extent. Right.. there's NO actual scientific proof.. you're asked to (blindly) BELIEVE in God no matter what.

I'm angry at the religion(Chrianity) for contributing to Rampage's madness. If he'd sought mental-health treatment instead of putting faith in God.. he'd have not gone this crazy..
Mandator- July 26, 2008 at 6:50 pm
ALSO ID Like to add: Yes we came from monkeys, accept that fact carbon dating is not a lie. the earth is not 10 000 yrs old and its not flat. the earth is 4.5 billion years old, and carbon dating did not determinate that fact but lithographic dating used for thousands of years and proved completely reliable. go cut a rock fucking dumbasses and notice that the olderst layer of the rock is at the bottom. this is hoe SCEINTISTS determine the age of the earth. these scientis are called geologists they use a scientific method to develop their theories and THE BASIS OF THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD IS THAT IT HAS TO BE ABLE TO BE DISPROVEN. WOW that sounds a hell of alot better to me than BELIEVING THAT GOD CREATED THE WORLD 10 000 YEARS AGO JUST BECAUSE MOSES SAYS SO. haha cant you religious people realise youre a joke? the only people that have seen god were either schizophrenics undergoing true psychosis or were under the influence of CHEMICALS FROM PLANTS THAT PRODUCE STATES OF MIMIC PSYCHOSIS. in fact theres alot of evidence that the cxult of christ (very similar to the cult of ancient dionysus) were formulated under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms and in fact the cross represents the symbolic form of the hygrophorus mushroom.
Mandator- July 26, 2008 at 6:40 pm
all you god freaks out there, make me sick. christianity is GROUP PSYCHOSIS as someone already mention.wake the fuck up. organised religion should be utterly annihilated from the face of this earth. everything evil in this world has been commited in the name of religion. how can you fucktards in this day and age assume that your best friend is jesus and that he speaks to you? how can you love an invisible and totally formless being? if god exists why cant the majority of the people see him? in fact the only people who claim to have seen him were fictionary characters from fairytales of jews. why dont norwegian people think that odin or santa clause is real? is there really a difference between christian mythology and greek mythology? why one is accepted as "faith" the other as myth? its because the christian church killed everyone who said christianity is mythology, they burned everyone at the stake. and right now these fucks still walk around with a stick trying to force people to accept their lies. long live Giordano Bruno. Long live Science. hail to our martyrs. fuck christianity and islam and whatever other bullshit religion.

All you anti Rampage fans, go fuck yourself. Rampage will come back and murder Forrest Gump Griffin

Chris- July 21, 2008 at 11:08 pm
It breaks my heart to hear all this anti God talk and beating up on Quintin while he's already down. I'm sure that somebody will respond to this comment with some beligerant comment or attack on Christianity. Yes I am a Christian and thank God for that. I did not leave my brain behind when I accepted Christ in my life but on the contrary. There is more proof in this life of a Creator than you will ever find of evolution. I dear one to argue with evidence. The point is people to often see bad examples of Christians and unfortunately that turns off people. I pray that Quintin heals mentally, emotionally, and spiritually and I pray that we would all turn our hearts and minds to an almighty God that loves us even in spite of ourselves. God bless

fuck rampage, and fuck jesus.

yeah........ religion makes people crazy
UFC- July 19, 2008 at 9:03 am
It's getting more and more obvious with all of these comments... the pieces are falling together to say that Rampage is obviously schizophrenic (the "other" person coming out) and all of the not remember fights thing, along with this whole God episode... schizophrenic people often attribute their "gifts" as closeness with God...
Mma oz- July 18, 2008 at 5:58 am
Im guessing he is bi-polar, a friend of mines bi-polar and every few years he thinks his god, goes completely nutty,

Professor X has got rampages back
DK604- July 17, 2008 at 6:15 pm
Nooooo Rampage.

Rampage is my Hero, and this high stress, public and out of mind reality he's going through is by far the most diabolical villian he has faced yet.

This is like a bad dream, where the dude your fighting can't die.

Like Joker to Batman or Sabertooth to Wolverine, I don't see Rampage killing this foe, without losing what makes him super in the first place.

My only hope is that Rampage learns to overpower this enemy of his and keeps him in constant check for the rest of his life.

Theres nothing I want more than to see Rampage back in the cage, smiling down Wandy while taking bombs to the face, and take back his title.

But, there has clearly been a line of reality that he has crossed that a normal person will find almost impossible to ignore when looking in a mirror. And there is no way the media and fans are gona let him forget this.

Rampage is by far one of the physically strongest fighters out there, lets hope Quinton Jackson has the strength to get through this.
FatCoward- July 17, 2008 at 4:22 pm
Didn't Rampage say in one of his post fight interviews that he did not remember knocking someone out?
Rickson- July 17, 2008 at 4:15 pm
I will submit him by armbar.

Get better soon Rampage. Ya just gotta take a vacation and get away from it all for awhile. Stay away from things and people that use you up.
