The Genesis Of Rampage’s Bad Breath Jokes Revealed

(‘Actually Marvin Eastman, your breath is delightful. I am at a loss.’)

Pro MMA conducted an interview with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s father recently, and it really helps put some of his personality traits into perspective. Most notably, Jackson’s penchant for making jokes about how bad other people’s breath smells:

You know Quinton is always telling bad breath jokes. Well I was the first to start it with him. We were in McDonald’s one day, Quinton was deciding on what to order. He said, “I don’t know what I want.” I replied “You know what you need to order?” he said, “What?” I said, ” You need to order a great big Tic Tac.” It was funny. Everybody was laughing. From then on, we would always joke on each other’s breath.

Just think, if his dad had told a knock-knock joke at that crucial moment in Jackson’s development, things might have turned out very differently. And by differently I mean, you know, totally lame.

Is it sad that this is what passes for interesting news in the lead up to this title fight? Kind of.

But in other UFC news, Thiago Alves is said to be facing Diego Sanchez at UFC 89 in England, according to MMA Weekly. If it seems a little odd for Alves to go from dismantling Matt Hughes to facing someone who is probably lower on the welterweight totem pole, well, that’s because it is. Still should make for an interesting fight. Who knows, Alves might even make weight this time. Maybe.

Obama is a racist. His church is racist, his church gave a "lifetime achievement award" to Louis Farrakhan, a man who said whites are less than human, and that extermination was preferable.

If the races were different, he would have been drummed out of the running long ago.

You people are so f*cking stupid. . . .

I dont see what other option Alves really has. If you look at the other welterweights around Fitch and GSP already have a scheduled match which takes both of them out of the picture and Jake Shields fights for EliteXC (plus he has a fight coming up on July 26th)

Diego makes sense because he just beat Fioranti in the TUF Finale, so the Alves/Sanchez fight should have more exposure based on the fact that Diego's last fight was not on PPV.

Also, Alves failed to make weight in his last fight, which only shows that he is not yet completely ready for the title shot with GSP.

Don't try to discredit Diego: "lower on the totem pole"

He is 19-2...he lost to Koscheck, but he had staph inphection and almost had to quit MMA from it. Anyone who saw that fight knows it was BS, Koscheck through 10 punches, Diego only 5, so Kos got the decsion.

AND, Diego BEAT Jon Fitch. That's right, Diego BEAT the BLANKET.

Diego threw a lot of submissions and worked from his back, all Fitch did was lay n pray...typical UFC refs: "Top position = winning fight"

Not when Diego had 2 or 3 subs very close to finishing Fitch and Fitch doesn't even hurt Diego even though he is on top for 13 minutes of a 15 minute fight

LOL Quinton's dad told him to order a big tic tac. I would love to be in that house on Christmas dinner.

I like the Alves // Sanchez match, from multiple points of view. Foremost I do enjoy watching the fights, and you can virtually guarantee a fast paced contest.

Also form the perspective of looking at the division's future match-making possibilities I have to think this is the right call for Joe Silva (or his lackey) to have made. Here's why; Sanchez has never faced Hughes or St.Pierre. Alves has never faced St.Pierre either. If Diego wins, they can easily say "Sanchez is Back!!" (you know they will) and put him up against Georges, whether St.Pierre wins or loses against Jon Fitch.

If Thiago wins, they can say he beat Hughes and now Sanchez, he's ready for GSP, again whether Georges wins or loses. Meanwhile, if Sanchez loses he can face Hughes on the duo-comeback tip, insuring that at least one big name then rebounds from loss.

If Fitch wins against GSP neither Thiago, nor Diego, will be in line for a title shot. So it's unlikely that Fitch will be in either man's near future, regardless of the GSP fight result.

If Fitch wins I think we're in for a run of Swick crushing cans to build his credibility while they also scramble to rebrand Koscheck whom I can promise the UFC brass hopes will win against Lytle.
