Rampage Denies Ducking Evans; Says He Would Have Fought Him Last Year If He Were Still Champ

(Not only do yo’ breff stank, I bet you don’t even know what a best boy does, fool.)

In a recent interview with, 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 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.”

Rampage is garbage and has ring rust.
He is over-rated.
He and Ubereem will one day be convicted of rape.

The End

OOH I've never been this excited for a fight before! The Primetime show will just make the wait even worse! HHNNNNGH! It's on like donkey kong, motherf*ckers!

I said i wouldnt attack him (as u did me), so i did not. maybe you didnt read the dialogue, but i intend to honor him by complimenting him by naming my next large brown child. If u follow, you will read further he said he'd be honored.

Apparently you heard Paul Daley say he did not intend to attack Kos? please share the link, it could be a internet hit over night.

my use of "sincere and as a matter of fact" is not grammatically correct, but it correctly personifies his attitude in the previous post.

then u further go on to call me weird in a bad way, and further on indirectly call me a psycho.

considering psychosis is hallucinating or seeing things that are not there, maybe u were talking about yourself. Apparently you mistook sarcasm and witty banter as insulting, as well as took to rage and misunderstanding before logic and reason.

and btw, when u want to make friends with Person A, there are better ways than insulting those around you for personal gain.

ON TOPIC- Not every fighter is Rich Franklin, most people resort to fighting due to all of the reasons they didnt want to be a scholar. the village idiots happen to make the most mistakes, Rampage is just another victim of his environment.

Rampage knocks Rashad out in the first - I asked my magic eight ball - all signs point to yes.

Lol'd @ "They weren't clean so it was a fair exchange."

Another day in paradise, eh?
MediumRare- May 11, 2010 at 2:48 pm

It's true. Psychos are drawn to me. I think they sense in me the capacity to help them.

For instance, I was stopped on the side of the road inspecting some roadkill this afternoon and a bum approached me. He was drooling and one of his eyes kept twitching violently. I quickly learned that he was an Iraq war vet and had been in and out of psychiatric wards for a year or two.

He babbled on for 10 minutes about his doctor and the electro-shock treatment he'd been receiving.

I gave him some LSD. He didn't have any money so he gave me some ladies panties that were in his pocket. I didn't ask where he'd gotten them. They weren't clean so it was a fair exchange.
macreadysshack- May 11, 2010 at 2:45 pm

Yeah, but I think you were the first to actually ask if my name referenced that . . . +10 to you.
rlh61- May 11, 2010 at 2:38 pm
@El Famous...I agree...nice reference.
macreadysshack- May 11, 2010 at 2:27 pm

Nice, 'I will not attack you' and then attack him move. You must be related to Paul Daley.

Why is "sincere and as a matter of fact," in quotes? Is it a colloquialism that I've somehow missed?

I thought for sure it was just 'matter of fact'.

I dunno. I think you're weird. Not in a good way.


Is it me or do you just attract the psychos?
Vargas- May 11, 2010 at 1:47 pm
If rampage walks in to the A-team theme, all will be forgiven.
macreadysshack- May 11, 2010 at 12:52 pm
@ El Famous . . . Nice reference!!! +10
MediumRare- May 11, 2010 at 12:29 pm
@ Markareg

I'd be honored if you would name your next poop after me. I'd be even more honored if I inspired you to make a taco out of that fucker and gobble it down. If so, I recommend cocaine and vodka to help you get it past your gag reflex.

Btw, you are a flawless judge of character.

duck schmuck, rampage still KO's rashad
El Guapo- May 11, 2010 at 12:17 pm
Mmmm... Baby shit tacos. VERY tender.

Guys, fellas, guys. Rampage is gonna make Shooga Shad do the stanky leg, electric slide and cabbage patch... At the same time... In the first round!!
KidDinomite- May 11, 2010 at 12:15 pm
These built up fights always turn out disappointing. Look at Koscheck and Daley, that fight was supposed to have someone getting knocked out guaranteed. Instead it was a boring exercise in Lay n' Pray that had almost no action and was a total bore like the Henderson/Shields fight.

I have a feeling Evans is gonna do the same thing here to Rampage who doesn't have the wrestling chops that Rashad has and it's gonna be a one-sided, boring-ass wrestling match. In my opinion, that's not beating the other guy, that's a blatant playing to the rules, going for a decision win which does not carry the same weight as KOing or submitting the other guy.

In this case, Japanese MMA has it right. They seriously need to deduct 10% of their pay if they're gonna lay on the other guy for 3 rounds.
Markareg- May 11, 2010 at 12:13 pm
@ MediumRare.

you sound pretty "sincere and as a matter of fact," for that reason i will not attack you, but instead in your glorious, well timed manner, i will name my next poop "Medium Rare." pics soon to come. Thank you for the inspiration!
El Famous Burrito- May 11, 2010 at 12:11 pm
Maybe you ARE the troll. I'm going to need a blood sample and a Zippo to be sure.
macreadysshack- May 11, 2010 at 12:07 pm
I WANNA macreadyssnack troll!!!!!!!

@ Markareg

1. That lady aborted her baby with a coathanger as an excuse to sue Rampage. I know that for a fact.
2. Yes, giving birth is much like taking a shit. I name most of the turds that come out of my ass. Once in a while I try and make a taco out of one of them, too.
3. Yes, Rampage is mentally unstable. Luckily for him, that's not a liability in his line of work.

ps. If being the first to drop a comment on a post or article on a website was a memorable and well enjoyed moment for you, fucking kill yourself. Your life is a blatant lost cause. Sorry to be the one to break it to you but someone had to.

@ MediumRare

+1 Agreed. That would be the best outcome if both were knocked out. Maybe Dan Miragliotta can be the ref and the default winner of such an awesome double knockout.
MediumRare- May 11, 2010 at 11:55 am
@ Almost North

Welcome to the internet.

Looking forward to this fight. I hope they beat the living piss out of one another. I'm predicting a simultaneous knockout because that would be the only justice for us having to listen to these two clowns.
Markareg- May 11, 2010 at 11:54 am
Guys, im glad there is much discussion this controversial fight, yet im pressed to remind you of some evident truths.
1. Rampage didnt kill her baby. She was "tramatized" by an event he caused. her body aborted that child, much like a snake aborting its food when threatened. its a defense mechanism.
2. Lets also not forget that most humans, the vast majority at that, are weak, defenseless beings who resort to superstitions and accusations for comfort. Babies are not "Gods" gifts, they are a byproduct of instinct, much like take a shit after eating. Granted, 1 product is more useful than the other. She lost a baby, sad, but not traumatic. shes probably lost 2-4 already that she didnt even know about.
3. Rampage isnt mentally stable. his reasons arent logical and well thought out. its not that hes "dumb/lame" hes just a victim of a poor education and many strikes to the head.

ps. ive only got 1 1st in my internet career, and it was well enjoyed. try it
