‘Rampage’ Says He’s Not Fighting in Japan and He’s Not Very Happy About the News

(I can’t see *why* they wouldn’t put him on the card. Video courtesy of YouTube/MMADigest)

It looks like the proposed light heavyweight bout between Stephan Bonnar and Quinton Jackson won’t be happening at UFC 144 in Japan as we previously predicted.

According to “Rampage,” who was told last month by UFC president Dana White that he would be on the February 25 card, he will not be fighting at the Saitama Super Arena that day and he’s not very happy about the news.

Jackson Tweeted the following today:

Considering that the card has not been filled up yet, it’s likely that Jackson’s services are required for another event being planned for the same time. Our money is on the UFC on Fox 2 ┬ácard whose co-main events White has said are being finalized today.

We’ll have to wait and see, but given Bonnar’s iron chin and his penchant for going toe-to-toe with every opponent he faces coupled with the the historic fight he put on with Forrest Griffin at the TUF 1 finale, there’s a good chance we could see him get his wish for a “dream fight” with Rampage on the televised two-fight portion of the card. That is unless the UFC wants to risk having another sub-60-second fight on Fox instead of a fan-friendly slugfest like Bonnar and Rampage are known for delivering.

Rampage's acting is worst than his fighting, which means we're stuck watching his ungrateful mug for now.

@ God Dicks Magoo & Xeno, co sign. I always liked Rampage untill I saw that doco on him, straight up bullying small Japanese dudes, speaking like shit to women, he is a fucking clown.

Why the hell not? This guy is a great fighter. Don't blame him for being mad.

Disqualified for not quoting it correctly.

Rampage is a pair of clown shoes and if I ran into him I would take those clown shoes off of him and beat him w/ them.........................Jay n Silent Bob for the win bitches!

hahaha Some self deprecation can make for great humor. A sign of confidence and true character!

Rampage is pretty much a black Joe Son.

I wish that Japanese chick knew English and in the thickest broken accent would say "My grill? What happened to your crazy black ass driving all over the road like a fucking lunatic? Go cry some where else. I feel sorry for your mother!"

For real, Page is a entertaining cuse he's a clown. No one takes him seriously including his opponents.

I'm with Rampage on this. He is huge in Japan and would be excited for that fight, which is huge with Rampage. He needs a reason to fight these days and Japan would be a great reason. I almost hope they do Bonnar vs Griffin on FOX!!!

What a dick.

He put on a good fight?
XENOPHON- November 22, 2011 at 1:10 pm
I'm with you. What a fucking dolt. I wonder how FOX and Zuffa legal departments feels about their employees who represent the brand?
Sure their is much to laugh at when traveling internationally, but picking on some dumb nipponese with fucked up teeth - as if the Japanese version of Walmart isn't allowed to hire the same - is really weak sauce from a man who will never hold the title again.

Wake up bitches. RAMPAGE is good tv. Good entertainment. If you want politically correct, go watch THE VIEW. fucking haters.

Rampage Jackson is as cool they come. I would love to see Rampage against Anderson Silva at 205. Now that would be an awesome fight.

@shatterproof yeah I am mad. I used to be a big Page fan but this dude complains about everything. Yeah, the bald father promised him a fight in Japan but things in business (UFC is a business) deals and other things fall through. He complained about movie deals, fights, money you name it. Every time he opens his mouth it's basically about how he's been done wrong. He whines more than an asian chick in a tentacle porn movie. Fuck him, fuck him in the tater hole with a wiffle ball bat.

p.s. More evidence that he'll be on UFC on FOX 2:
DW was going to get the contracts signed by the fighters today, and today Rampage announces his next fight isn't in Japan. Coincidence? Probably not.
Shifty-Eyed Dog- November 22, 2011 at 11:17 am
I don't think he's out of line to be kinda mad about this. After putting on a great fight, he made a simple request, which if it was turned down was fine, but DW said "yeah... Fuck yeah!" and now he doesn't get it.

I have to agree that he's going to be on UFC on Fox 2. I guess he's too big a name to be a lower-card fight in Japan, so if they want him in a main event they needed to go to a different date.
Shifty-Eyed Dog- November 22, 2011 at 11:14 am
DW has said that UFC on Fox 2 will be FOUR fights, not two.
Morningwood- November 22, 2011 at 11:02 am
what an asshole. No matter who he ever fights again I hope they absolutely smash him.

Rampage is never happy with anything. Ever. Go drink some more energy drinks and play Grand Theft Auto in real life with a pregnant lady. Oh wait, he's already done that. For a big tough guy he really is a cry baby.

"I got a humongous dick and I got big balls!"

Stay classy Rampage.
