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.
