Master of Foresight Greg Jackson Shows Shocking Lack of Foresight in Joining Bellator/Randy Couture Reality Show

(“OK, Jon, let’s call it a day. I’ve got to go get some fans.”)

Greg Jackson, world-renowned mixed martial arts trainer and Dana White-described “fucking sport killer” is known by MMA fans near and far for his ability to predict the mindsets of opposing fighters and react accordingly. He has created intricate, masterly crafted gameplans that have in turn helped propel the likes of Georges St. Pierre, Rashad Evans, and Jon Jones to the ultimate level of MMA glory. But as they say, “Those who can’t do, teach.” “They” were clearly referring to none other than Greg Jackson, who stated in an interview today that he didn’t “foresee any future problems” with the UFC despite the fact that he’s hopped on board Bellator’s upcoming TUF-ripoff reality show:

No, I don’t think so because like Randy (Couture) I’ve worked with Bellator before, and I don’t think it should be a problem. My fighters are my fighters, and I’m me and like Frank (Shamrock) said as well, I think it’s good for the sport.

Even Dana (White) would admit that it’s good for the sport to have other organizations around.  So I don’t foresee any problems.

Oh Greg, you ignorant slut. After all this time in the game, you think you would have a better understanding of The Baldfather’s view on friendly competition.

One would also think a guy as smart as Jackson would have been hesitant to join the ranks of Frank Shamrock, who White will carry a grudge against to the grave (perhaps rightfully so), and Randy Couture, who has enraged White so much with this deal that he has in turn been banned from attending any future UFC events, including those that feature his own son. All we’re saying is, Greg, don’t be too surprised if you show up at the next UFC event and find the guy on the far right blocking the door.

Jackson has been on thin ice ever since he advised Jon Jones to pull out of UFC 151, a move that led to the inevitable cancellation of the event. And although Dana has since ceased spilling haterade in Jackson’s direction, you gotta imagine this move puts the famed trainer back on Dana’s shitlist. And brother, that is not somewhere you want to be.

If you think Jackson's fighters will turn over their titles and quit their jobs over this you're insane. I don't know why everyones talking about licenses either. I don't think being licensed is terribly relevant to the ufc allowing you cage side. I have a license that allows me to legally drink alcohol, but they still won't let me into half the bars around here...

Amsterdam it's not up to te UFC whether or not Jackson can corner his fighters... it's up to the athletic commission.. they're the ones that license the seconds. Even if the UFC had that power, it still wouldn't mean shit. Jackson corners 2 of te ufc's most marketable fighters. Is Dana gonna tell them who they can or cannot have in their corner. Also, consider jacksons huge stable of UFC fighters.

It'll be pretty funny when Jackson cant corner his fighters any longer because of this shit, lol. You can say "he's just a trainer" but if he's collecting a paycheck directly from Bellator, then hes a Bellator employee and I dont see Zuffa accepting that easily.

Speaking of pissing off DW, I doubt Egotastic will be high on his list with their post today:

The beef between Dana and Greg is a work. When White Vs Jackson is announced for payperview remember where you read it first.

Uh oH! Dana remember when you made a deal with Jon Jones that you would never bad mouth Greg Jackson again? That deal really hurts now, doesn't it! Who else can join Bellator and make Dana's head explode!

I don't think CP is biased, I think it's the truth. Strikeforce ended up as a joke, Rampage didn't find a better way to go out the UFC but with a bitch fit and Randy, he's just doing business.

I believe the first poster got it right.

Dana is such a fucking megalomaniac. Greg Jackson is a trainer. No affiliation to the UFC other than his fighters destroy in the organization. Greg took the political route but honestly he could have plainly stated, "it's none of Dana's fucking business what I do. I'm not his child or employee."

Cagepotato, you are so obviously bias to the UFC. Are you getting backhanders to pan anything non-UFC? Having competition across MMA and successful alternatives to the one big organisation can only be good for the sport. Strikeforce, Rampage, Randy, it's like you have an anti-UFC intelligence and response unit.

You literally have no frame of reference here, snakey. You're like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie and...THIS IS NOT VIETNAM SNAKEY. THERE ARE RULES HERE.
