“Rampage” Jackson Is Just A Little Banged Up

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson did not suffer serious injury in his bout with Forrest Griffin at UFC 86, as was initially feared. Instead of waiting until January to get back in action, the former champ was cleared by a doctor to get back in the gym next week, trainer Juanito Ibarra said:

“After the fight, he had a knot the size of a cantaloupe on his shin,” Jackson’s trainer, Juanito Ibarra, told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). “I’ve never seen anything like it in all the years I’ve been in the fight game. It was ugly. The next day it went down. Today, there’s no bump at all. The doctor said he’s fine. It’s a deep bone bruise now. He’s totally fine. There’s no damage. All we’re waiting for now is the rematch.”

[...]

“Forrest said after the fight he didn’t want to do it again, but he had to, remember? He said that because he felt in his heart he didn’t win that fight. Let the kids heal, and let’s get it on.”

This is good news for the UFC, whose options just got better with so many possible light heavyweight matches at their disposal.

As for Ibarra, he insists he is not going back on his vow to retire if Jackson lost:

“I’m not going anywhere. I don’t go against my word, but look at the video. Did it say I’m retiring from the fight game? No. You know what I’m retiring from? The waterfront. I’ve been a longshoreman for 28 years. I’m retiring from the waterfront.”

Oh, you sly dog. You pulled one over on all of us, Juanito. Don’t we look the fool now?

lol are you serious- July 9, 2008 at 7:52 pm
haha there needs to be a rematch. griffin is an alright fighter, same with rampage..i havent seen anything spectacular from either of them. except griffins head should have a spaulding stamp on it the way jardine bounced that shit off the mat like 6 times. honestly i think rua could go ahead and take that belt at 100%. yah griff beat him, but i didnt see any kicks at all from rua. thats like royce gracie with no bjj, sherk with no roids or florian with no elbows to the back of the head...

i would actually like to see griffin and henderson if he would pop back to 205

@the F man- you sir are a hero to us all, I mean think about this for a second....the insane meaningless ramblings, I am sure you are uneducated, living with your mom...pumping some un-lifelike blow up doll, when you give your goat out behind the trailer you live in a break....you wear your mothers undergarments when she is out blowing the manger of your trailer park so you guys can stay another month...and in the middle of all that you still have time to write out one of the most ignorant comments I have ever seen....you sir are a hero to us all.

rampage lost and all those people sayin chuck needs to go beat rampage to be the champ.rampage should beat shogun or wandi to be champ sinse they kicked his ass big chris u remember me.big chris has jenny warts and smells of vedgtable matter chuck needs to start using his leg kicks and he would stand more of a chance of beating rampage.i think the lhw belt is gona be passed round alot and dont count out chuck just cos rampage got a lucky punch i no he beat him before in pride but that was more of a fight.if wandi and forrest and shogun can beat him why carnt chuck.he just needs a better game plan.its like when randy beat chuck in the 1st fight buy the time the second fight came all poeple like u would of been saying chucks gona get beat.when chuck tryed to draw rampage in and rampage said stop runnin chuck got pissed of and made a mistake like jardine wasted forrest but forrest beat rampage do u think jardine vs forrest 2 would be the same.its all about gameplan.chuck was ring side at ufc 86 rampage has crazy power but forrest was using leg kicks which i think won him the fight.chuck used to hav good kicks which he has not used since babalu if chuck had to fight rampage again it would be totally different.because chuck was champ 4 so long people new what he wos gona do if he throw some head kicks and some takedowns he would throw them off abit.like they always go on about rampage slams he tryed it on forrest and he saw it coming a mile away i dont think rampage will ever pull of a slam like he did in pride.all these people that bum rampage really thought he was gona be champ 4 ever just cos he beat chuck he is shit on the ground has no decent kicks has shit takedown defence but he can hit hard wow forrest dominated rampage on the ground and tito dominated forrest yes he knocked chuck out then and all of a sudden chuck is shit .remember chuck is the best fighter the ufc has ever seen no body can win them all how many wins has chuck had in the ufc how many has rampage.and silva has beat franklin and hendo and all of a sudden he is the greatest fighter that ever lived.he has a beating coming his way just like everyone else he just hasnt fought inuf people yet.what do u think his shit dont stink hendo beat him the first round so he can be beat if it bleeds we can kill it

Jackson woulda won that if if he did what I did... He has to use his leg more. He's got to move!
The Truth- July 9, 2008 at 1:45 am
Rampage has to "get back in line", Wandy is back on track...

What better than Rampage-Silva 3? It would be impossible to say that the winner of that fight doesn't deserve a shot at Forrest. Then we either get our rematch or Forrest has a chance to prove himself yet again by knocking off another of the great Pride nicknames.

I would commit suicide the day i stole a line from some retard on Cagepotato… oh shit.

on the ratings side of things i think a rematch is most certinly in order. however it would be a sin to put off all the other fighters in one of the most teeth nashing nail bighting weight classes in the ufc. handing a new commer like rampage another tittle shot so soon after a loss is ethicly wrong. thiago silva 12/0, wanderlei silva 32/8, lyota machida 13/0 and rashad evans 16/0. handing a rematch to rampage before any of these guys in my opinion is morraly and ethicly wrong. with that aside i could care less who fights. knowing what these guys bring to the table you can bank on it being a knock down war.

Rampage lost quit whining
BIG CHRIS- July 8, 2008 at 8:35 pm
@totaldb-Yes...but I can steal my own lines if I want to.....now where's my helmet!?!
totaldb- July 8, 2008 at 8:29 pm
but BIG CHRIS, aren't you one of said retards on Cagepotato???
BIG CHRIS- July 8, 2008 at 8:26 pm
@Danilo-No I am not a Chuck hugger, I just think because of the way he lost to Rampage, the only possible he can regain credibility is to beat Rampage, that is why a rematch between CHuck and Rampage should happen....if he goes around Rampage and beats Forrest, to me he isn't a legitimant champion....
BIG CHRIS- July 8, 2008 at 8:22 pm
Hey Rumbler I think there might have been one or two more people other than you who have seen Goodfellas...that is where the line originated and that is where i got it from...I would commit suicide the day i stole a line from some retard on Cagepotato....

@ Big Chris...“GO GET YOUR SHINE BOX!” what the hell does that mean and not to mention you stole if from somebody else, you must have been adopted by homosexuals and raised in their image. but lets get back on track, I do agree with whoever said Rampage should have at least 1 non-title fight before he goes after his belt (I didn't at first but once I read it, it kinda made sense).

@Aaron From Alaska-GO GET YOUR SHINE BOX!!!!

"GO GET YOUR SHINE BOX!"

You stole that from me.
a word to the unwise- July 8, 2008 at 7:36 pm
No, Juanito, you did not go on record saying that you would retire "from the fight game". Your words, as I recall them, were that you would retire "from this sport".
Did you pay a lawyer a hefty fee to find this ridiculous loophole? At least fess up and admit that you never imagined Quinton losing to Forrest. And let this be a lesson for any future predictions you may unwisely make. In the sport of MMA, any fighter can beat another fighter on any given night!

Bastard has an Audi R8- Nice cars, but performance to that of a $45K Chrysler SRT-8 sedan... you are paying $120k+ for looks in that thing. If I am paying that kind of money, I dont wanna get spanked by cars that are much cheaper.. hell a 600HP Dodge Viper is about $90K and a 505HP Corvette Z06 is $75k and it will KILL an Audi R8

@Spanky

I think the Rampage stoppage against Chuck was justified since it sided on fighter safety. I see your point about letting a man truly fight for the title but that brings up the question of whether you should ref/judge a title fight differently than any other fight (I don't think you should but thats just me).

I definitely agree with the later half of your post. I don't think anyone can be too upset at a decision, especially one as close as the Rampage-Forrest fight. I also agree that Rampage needs at least one non-title fight victory before he earns another shot.
