(Via Rampage Jackson’s Twitter, with the message: "A gift from the UFC. Wanna make a black man happy? Get him a ride!!")
Here’s a question for you, Potato Nation. Say you’re Dana White and you’ve got yourself yet another problem with "Rampage" Jackson. Seems he’s running his mouth about how he’s done with the UFC, was never really all that into MMA to begin with, and just wants to finish his contract so he can forget this noise and go be the biggest movie star since Jim Varney. What do you do to talk him down off the ledge and get him to play nice again?
As those of you who have been following MMA for any length of time already know, DW knows only one foolproof way to make his fighters happy and it’s, Buy the dude a car. Why? Because people love cars that they didn’t pay for. And judging by Jackson’s response — which would fall into the realm of harmful stereotype if we said it, but sounds perfectly reasonable when ‘Page says it — it totally worked.
Who says you can’t fix every interpersonal problem with material goods? Something tells me Dana White is one hell of a father.
