Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Quinton Jackson Smashes Fools in ‘The A-Team’ Trailer + More MMA Fighter Movie News

"You miss me? ‘Cuz I missed yoouuuuuu…"

So says Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in the above trailer for The A-Team, which hits theaters this summer with Jackson mean-mugging his way through the B.A. Baracus role. To be honest, we kinda did miss Rampage; it would have been nice to have him in the cage at UFC 108, that’s all. The word on the street is that Jackson will return to the Octagon against Rashad Evans in May. Between beating his felony evading charges, playing one of his childhood heroes in a movie, and having the opportunity to put his fists on an arch-rival, this is shaping up to be a banner year for Jackson. Great to be you, homey.

Speaking of MMA stars on the silver screen…

More castmembers have signed on for Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming action flick Knockout, which stars Gina Carano as a deadly super-spy who seeks bloody revenge after being double-crossed by someone on her own team. The MMA sex symbol will be sharing the screen with such cinematic heavies as Michael Douglas, Dennis Quaid, Ewan McGregor, and Michael Fassbender, as well as one more high-profile male actor who is close to being confirmed.

— UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell has scored a role in Passion Play, a drama/thriller starring Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox. Fox plays some sort of angel/circus freak held by a ruthless gangster (Rourke, we’d assume), who finds herself rescued by a down-on-his luck trumpet player (probably not Liddell). The film is currently shooting in Sante Fe, New Mexico.

Hey Goat...go fuck yourself. People who talk too much don't have time to learn anything. By the way, get that cock out of your ass, you might feel just a bit better about yourself.

"New A-Team trailer features shirtlessness, explosions, some guy who's not Mr. T.",36864/

The onion wasn't impressed with jacksons screen presence either.
Maybe they would have been more impressed if they knew the difference between "wrestling" and MMA.

(A little disappointed with that. But phipps isn't their best writer anyway, so meh.)

that's cool, TrouserSnout. You can continue to be that loser in the back of the room no one cares about.

If I have to be an attention whore to win a t-shirt, then I don't want one.

That didn't look nearly as bad as I thought it was going to.

Where's B.A.'s bling?
Kimbos Bread- January 9, 2010 at 2:45 pm
Well ya, if you ended up seeing the movie there probably never was a plan B.

^Yes I am, too, of "perty boy hangover" but I grew up with the A-team so I have to watch it.
LetMeStickItInYourRua- January 9, 2010 at 2:18 pm
Is anyone else getting tired of seeing that pretty boy dude from the Hangover in EVERYTHING? Cause I sure fucking am.

Holy shit that looks stupid!

Everything about that looked stupid!

The harpoon gun into the transport door seemed cool for about one second. But after I thought about it for one more second, that was the coolest part but fucking stupid too!

Although from what I've heard about movies either about MMA or with MMA guys in them this may be the Chariots of Fire of that genre.

I dont know much about them.

Lol @ Peetee.

Oh snap! Big Ben, that was a sick comment.

When will they stop re-making movies and TV shows? How many god awful piles of shit will be dumped on movie goers before they just burn theatres in protest? I'm guessing it will be around "The honeymooners 3: To the moon".
Sakuraba3900- January 9, 2010 at 11:01 am
The movie looks ridiculous... floating tank shootin and blowing shit up? SIGN ME UP SON!

In other news, Merlin is an asshole.

I pity the audience...

Someone give Goat a t-shirt. Brilliant! I think we're well overdue for a stoner buddy movie. This time though, the buddies don't take shit from anyone. Instead of running from cops and whatnot, they throw down gogo's and rear naked's when the 'man' tries to put his thumb on em.
BeastUnleashed- January 9, 2010 at 10:52 am
That a-team movie is gonna be terrible.
Big Ben Snackwell- January 9, 2010 at 10:36 am
In other news, Bruce Buffer, Bill Goldberg, Michael Goldberg and Michael Buffer are all getting married.
DiazBros209- January 9, 2010 at 10:21 am
I'd pay to see that.

In other MMA/film news, Nick Diaz and Joe Rogan have been cast in a modern day remake of Cheech and Chong.
