Rampage Jackson Outs Training Camp ‘Spy’ During ESPN SportsCenter Interview


(Twit-cap via MMAConvert)

For one unlucky employee of MusclePharm, this Rampage vs. Jones “spygate” thing just got uncomfortably real. While doing a split-screen interview appearance for SportsCenter, the UFC light-heavyweight stars covered familiar ground about disrespect and training camp spying. But then, Quinton Jackson dropped a bombshell:

Jackson: We just found out who the spy was, and he’s terminated. He’s no longer working right now. So we found out exactly who the spy was…and it’s true, everything I said was true.

Jones: So who was the spy, Rampage? If you don’t mind answering that. Why don’t you tell the world who the spy was?

Jackson: You know who the spy was. Only reason why I won’t tell the world who it is, because the guy did work at MusclePharm and the guys at MusclePharm found him and they fired him, and I didn’t want to bring MusclePharm on top…His name is Leonard, and you know Leonard because you were sending him K-Swiss shoes and stuff and everything from your manager. He’s great friends with your manager, and you know I’m telling the truth.

Jones: I was sending him K-Swiss shoes? I have no clue who Lennox [sic] is, Rampage. You need help, buddy.

Jackson: Whatever, dude. You sound guilty, homey.

Speculation has centered on Leonard Amenta, an Executive Vice President of MusclePharm who resigned last Friday. As Jones tweeted in response, “Sucks some poor guy at musclepharm got fired over rampages paranoia.”

Quinton Jackson has been training at the MusclePharm gym in Denver for the past two months, as part of a personalized training camp that has cost over one million dollars. (Not all of that came out of his own pocket, thankfully.) Damn. I wonder how much of that was spent on high-tech surveillance equipment?

Question: Assuming a spy existed in Rampage’s training camp, do you really think that Jon Jones knew about it, or that he ordered the recon mission himself? I’m still willing to believe that this was a rogue employee who leaked info to Jones’s manager for his own motivations. What inside information could Jones possibly hope to gain here? Hell, we already know how Quinton throws that hook

GRIN, that's right...a "honey-pot" is for countering counter-deception. Thanks for the note, I stopped following the accusations shortly after they surfaced, and I see you stayed on top of the facts.

They say, Time Travelers are smart, I agree.

You read my mind. I was thinking the same thing. Jones exhibited microexpressions of being guilty guilty guilty and very nervous. The vibrato in his voice, the unconcious twitching of his cheeck & eyebrow muscles, the leaning back & forward. This is not how he normally acts in an interview & it was all instantaneous when the name was mentioned. Unconciously he couldn't control it & it cemented my belief he's guilty as sin.

Joe Silva told Rampage that he got the call with the "information" from Jones' Manager directly. Which is obviously the truth because why would Joe Silva lie about that, & Jones' Manager admitted it (like he's going to even try to call Joe Silva a liar, career suicide right there).
.
Rampage used a "honey pot" technique to catch the spy (putting out a golden nugget & limiting the number of people who heard about it to only the suspect & the 100% trustworthy)
.
Clever, I never thought rampage would be some master of the spy game lol. I mean this is still the same guy who dry humps reporters and grabs peoples balls.

Man, Rampage is a giant fucking tool. Beginning to salivate at the thought of Jones stopping his dumb ass in the 1st.
Then Jones can renounce his religion and I will become a fan of his just like you or me non-threatening to white folk public persona!
He just better not break out any axes or wear his baseball cap at an angle or his jeans slung low or the deal is off.

There is one important piece of this spy-gate drama no one here clued into. Rampage said that once he seeded the story about his injury, it was the UFC matchmaker Joe Silva that called to find out what was up.
.
Was there indeed a spy, most likely there is one in every main event contenders camp. Could this Leonard be the culprit, surely. Was Leonard back channeling information about Rampage, to Jones, surely. Jones boasted long ago how he meticulously studies his opponents.
.
Yet, if any of this is true, the $1,000,000 dollar question is this, how was it that the Zuffa odds maker/fight maker - Joe Silva caught wind and called Rampage directly?

I can't believe I actually wasted time reading about this contrived, childish bullshit. Like someone else said, Rampages basic skillset aren't undergoing some overhaul, there is nothing for him to gain by worrying about what Rampage is doing. And unless they had a hyperbolic time chamber there for Jackson to train in, he's fucked.

I don't appreciate all the Rampage bashing. Also, K-Swiss? Were there no Fila's available? Rampage by TKO round three.

"Oh, somebody resigned from the company last week? Let's point the finger at him as the 'spy'!"

Fuck Jones he just lost, doesn't matter how the fight goes this will be his legacy. Mr. Jones welcome to BAMMA

I'm starting to look forward to this fight for no other reason than I don't have to read about this asinine storyline. Who cares if someone was watching Rampage train? Just because he's in some high-tech lab like like Drago doesn't mean his basic skill set has somehow changed. Both of these guys are starting to grate on my nerves. Jones played this whole thing wrong from the beginning the same way he played the Rashad mess. Maybe someone at Zuffa has been listening to Triple H because this is getting too WWE-like for my taste.

Say what you want about Rampage's chances and "why bother" but - even if Jones didnt know about it, his reputation takes a huge hit because its YOUR camp, YOUR manager (possibly) and you need to be in control of that stuff. If he DID know, then all of his denials and talk about respecting the sport shows him to be a lying piece of shit and he loses even more stock. Jon Bones Jones: A freak athlete w/ a superior skillset that has shit honor and a complete lack of respect for the integrity of the sport.

Everyone loses in MMA eventually and goddamn am I waiting for this jerkoff's number to come up.

Maybe Jackson's planning on throwing his second ever leg kick in this fight...

ROFL

Jackson's done. I can't believe the pain & heart ache you knuckle heads put yourselves through by ignoring the obvious.

I saw that interview on espn this morning, and the look on Jones face when Rampage mentioned musclePharm made it seem like he knew exactly who Rampage was talking about. I thought he was just being paranoid at first but I'm starting to think there might be something to it.
Also, it seems weight cutting makes Rampage very, very grumpy.

Jones can't handle the truth!!
Anhonestmoose- September 23, 2011 at 1:10 pm
I can't believe Rampage is still falling for this spy in the camp thing. Seriously, just worry about your own camp.

I bet this is what the spy told John Jones camp: "Take him to the ground. He's hopelessly miserable there." Honestly, i wouldn't waste money on spying on Rampage. Everyone knows what his strategy is going to be-- come out swinging and hope to get lucky. Too bad for Rampage, it ain't happening.

Jones is guilty, and tomorrow Rampage will be judge, jury, and executioner! He wants his belt back!!
