Suddenly Back in Fighting Mode, Rampage Jackson Calls Out Glover Teixeira

(Heading into his bout at UFC 144, Jackson found strength in the words of his former Shaolin master: “Ret ra rage fro froo you.” Ten minutes later, this happened.)

Rampage Jackson’s ongoing feud with the UFC — which we feel so far removed from that we’ve all but completely forgotten what started it in the first place (money? boring fights? stank bref?) — has clearly taken a toll on both his popularity and his fighting career over the years, as Twitter rants and rape videos are wont to do. After getting submitted by Jon Jones at UFC 135, Jackson showed up heavy, then got wrestlefucked by Ryan Bader when we last saw him, in a performance that would quickly be out-shined (not in a good way) by his hilariously awkward foray into the Japanese hip hop scene later that evening. Needless to say, it appeared as if the power-bombing, Liddell era-ending Rampage we all came to know and love was but a distant memory.

Jackson was then expected to finally bid the UFC adieu at last weekend’s UFC 153 event against Brazilian slugger Glover Teixeira, but then yada yada yada he got injured. Teixeira would go on to beat the ever-loving dogshit out of Fabio Maldonado, whereas Jackson would go on to eat the ever loving shit out of some chili cheese FRITOS. But after consuming those heavenly bits of artificially flavored corn and realizing that Teixeira was in fact a legitimate opponent to build his post-UFC resume on, Jackson quickly doubled back on his “I don’t care who I fight anymore” mentality and proceeded to call Teixeira out on Twitter:

Yo @danawhite set up that fight with Glover please! Lets give him what he I won’t let u down #fightofthenight

Dana White quickly responded with “sounds good bro,” which basically means that this thing is a done deal. Basically.

As Glover stated in his post-fight interview, he would love the chance to face a “motivated” Rampage, who he considers to be one of his idols (Author’s note: Dude, we need to find you some better idols.), so it looks like the rematch we’ve all been kinda sorta waiting for is looming on the horizon once again. Yayyyy…..

We’re not going to delve into this any further until the fight is actually booked, but now that Glover has established himself as a fighter worthy of a big name, this matchup seems to make even more sense than it did before. Agree or disagree? And while we’re at it, who you got?

looks like rampage is going to be in another rape video, except this time it will be on pay per view and it will be his asshole that gets power bombed

@ Fletch . . . Yeah, dude, what IS up with everybody saying that was anything but a 'vintage' Fitch grind-fest? The only real coolness of that fight, besides the awesome top-control and TDs we always see from Fitch, was what Silva made happen by not respecting his striking and throwing shit like a zoo monkey.

@ Furry Taco

I second the Red Bull. an insane Rampage is a dangerous Rampage, just ask the LBCPD. Especially if you are pregnant and commuting.

I think Rampage has a legit chance

OK, so after hearing all the talk about Fitch was so entertaining and a completely different fighter, etc. I decided to watch the fight. I gave him round 1, 10-9, Silva round 2 10-9, and Fitch round 3 10-8. While Fitch did look appear to be BETTER at what he is already known for, it was still a classic Fitch victory in my opinion. He did go for a lot of submissions in the 3'rd but this was basically because Silva was so tired he couldn't hardly move or defend anything. Good win for Fitch, not exactly a different fighter than previous though as everyone indicated.

I saw a 'motivated Rampage' once in 2007, and he was a dangerous man.

I really think that Glover's style plays well into Rampage's strength. Glover isn't a counter-puncher and he will stand a bang. He also doesn't rely on kicks nearly as much as others and will allows Rampage to close the distance. Although his takedowns are strong, they aren't fast or sneaky, so Rampage will be able to see them coming and has almost legendary take down defense anyway. Glover will likely win by decision, but he's going to eat a large quantity of fist on the way there.

It will look a lot like the Maldonado fight, except Rampage won't be able to withstand the hellacious beating for even 2 full rounds.

How is Rampage calling Glover out when Glover asked for him right after the fight and Rampage responds hours later on Twitter?

Sounds great. Let's make it happen this year yet please.

Rampage can win if he downs an entire case of Red Bull right before going to the ring. But he would have to finish off Glover quick, before the energy wears off and he has to pee.

Teixeira by complete and utter destruction (of Rampage's face and what's left of his career)
