(Not only do yo’ breff stank, I bet you don’t even know what a best boy does, fool.)
In a recent interview with Bisping.tv, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson says that taking the role of B.A. Baracus in the film remake of the A-Team had nothing to do with avoiding a planned post-TUF 7 showdown with Rashad Evans, like many suggested and that he hasn’t gone "Hollywood."
“I still want to clear [something] up…some of my fans don’t understand why I didn’t fight Rashad in the beginning. I don’t think…the fans that don’t understand now, I don’t think they’ll ever understand. Just because I’m a fighter, doesn’t mean I can’t do other things. I just want my fans to know…no matter what, even though I haven’t been in the cage for a while…people think that I went Hollywood, people always got negative stuff to say. People always underestimate me. I’ve been in this game for a while; I just think it’s funny. I’m just gonna go out there and do my job. I wanna knock Rashad out as quick as possible and get on with my career."
According to Rampage, he is a fighter first and foremost and will fight anyone anytime — unless of course there is no title on the line, in which case he’s a thespian first and he will have to check with his Hollywood agent to see if he’s available.
"If Rashad would have had the belt back then, I would have fought him most likely. There was a good chance that I would have fought him, but the dude didn’t even have the belt," Jackson said, believing it to be a suitable reason. "After I knocked out Wanderlei I was supposed to be fighting for my belt next. So here I am. Now I’m really motivated to fight Rashad because of his mouth.”
Later in the interview, he makes a curious claim that he doesn’t fight for the ancillary rewards that motivate other fighters.
“I don’t fight for glory and fame like some fighters," Rampage told Bisping.tv with a straight face.
You mean like starring roles in big budget Hollywood movies you would never have gotten if you weren’t a fighter?
Anyway, Rampage has had enough of the back and forth verbal battle he has been involved in with Evans since filming TUF and says he is no longer satisfied with beating up doors and key grips so has agreed to
quit ducking finally face Rashad next month at UFC 114 to teach him a lesson: You don’t mess with Hollywood.
"I don’t wanna walk around acting all tough cuz I’m a fighter. But when people run they mouth like Rashad, they get dealt with," Jackson said. "I hope he learns his lesson.”
