MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Rampage is Back and Everything is Juuuuust Fine

Suddenly former UFC champ “Rampage” Jackson is his normal self again. He showed up at yesterday’s UFC 87 press conference, laughing and joking and acting as if nothing unusual had happened. The UFC seems intent on downplaying the whole situation, even the really difficult parts, such as the woman who miscarried some time after being hit in Jackson’s “delirium”-fueled car chase. Dana White is even helping out, though maybe he shouldn’t:

“That one is out there like, ‘He hit her and she lost her baby,’ ” White said. “It was a week later. He knocked her mirror off her car. Rampage said, and he’ll tell you when you talk to him, ‘I care about everybody. I care about all life. I would never hurt anybody.’

“That’s the way he is,” White said. “Now he’s in a situation where somebody’s trying to civil sue him and make some money. Absolutely not. Absolutely not, this is not a criminal thing. No way. I’m no lawyer and I’m no judge, (but) this stuff will be worked out in the court.”

Not sure if blaming the victim in a hit-and-run is the best tactic, even if you believe she’s trying to take advantage of the situation. Then again, that is Dana White’s style. Losing your baby a week after being hit by a pro fighter in his run from the law, that’s just something you have to work through. The question is, do you want to be a f-cking mother?

Rampage didn’t discuss that particular situation with reporters, but did comment briefly on the situation with trainer Juanito Ibarra who, it was pointed out, was something of a father figure to the champ before their split:

“That’s what hurts,” Jackson said. “I can’t say. You guys will find out soon enough.”

We will? Care to give us the exact date on which we’ll find out? Because I hate being kept in suspense like this.

Why did Dana even bother to comment on the situation? How does he know what really happened during and after the ordeal? Was he riding with Rampage or something?

The guy is so big headed he thinks he owns the world, and that everyone should believe HIS version of the truth of any situation. He's already admitted to 'owning' Las Vegas, which shows how delusional he is. Idiots like him make a little money and think they are gods.

I have been a frequent visitor to this site for the last couple of months, and never have I really had the urge to comment. However, when I have as good as a laugh as I did at "The question is, do you want to be a f-cking mother?", I feel I need to drop a line of praise.

Well done, sir.
