“Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans Get Into It At UFC 100


(Props: Fox Fight Game)

If you can get past the ill-conceived idea to interview Dana White during a point in the UFC 100 live show that is so loud you have to shout directly into his ear in order to be heard, and then capitalizing on that opportunity by asking such probing non-questions as “Congratulations!” and “Frank Mir really has nothing to lose tonight,” you’ll see a little footage of the aftermath of a Octagonside shoving match between “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans.  Dana White seems all too accustomed to this stuff, which should tell us something about the way the next season of TUF is going to turn out.

These are two guys who know they are going to be paid very well to fight one another in a few months, and yet here they are tussling for free in the seats at the UFC’s biggest event, basically making a sideshow of themselves.  Either this is the most committed effort to hype a fight ever, or these guys really do hate each other.  Regardless, you gotta keep it together during an event where you’re basically a spectator/PR vehicle for the UFC.  Otherwise Dana White is not going to take you knuckleheads anywhere.

I saw griffin beat an extremely gassed shogun and lose to rampage."

gassed huh? guess why he was gassed...cause Griffin whipped his fucking ass that's why!
You saw Forrest LOSE to rampage? really? did Rampage have the belt when he walked out of the ring? hmmmm was that a no? maybe you need to get some glasses cause your dumbass is SEEING the wrong thing.

I predict rampage will knock Rashad out. rashad has lost his mind keeping up this stupid act. As long as he acts this way he will always lose.

Didn't Rashad do this same thing with Tito? I remember they got in each others' face at an event before they fought, and had to be separated. Then, after the fight they hugged and settled their completely fabricated feud and tried to sell us on Evans/Ortiz II.
I can just imagine Tito patting Rashad on the back afterwards and saying "Good job kid, you've learned how to hype a fight from the best", and then walking off with a huge grin, marveling at what a marketing genius he is. If you can take this kind of shit seriously, then I admire you.

I guess you didn't watch either Griffin-Shogun or Griffin-Rampage, huh?

It's just not the same without Rashad's wife and Jenna getting involved.

Love how Dana said that Brock is a grouch the week of the fight. That almost qualifies as foreshadowing.

It should be a good fight...

UFC has no need for any "Heel's"

Competitive aggression is enough...

"Either this is the most committed effort to hype a fight ever, or these guys really do hate each other."

Or they just cant stand not being the center of attention.

Can't wait for that fight. Tough one to pick too, but right now I'm going with Evans.

Rampage was makin fun of Rashad tweakin his nipples before the GSP fight. Rashad got angry and proceeded to hump Rampage's leg.
