Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Rampage Dismissed

(Now that his name was finally cleared, Rampage was looking forward to getting some normalcy back in his and Tiki’s life.)

The wrongful death lawsuit filed against Quinton Jackson by the mother who miscarried her unborn child days after being sideswiped by the former UFC light heavyweight champion’s monster truck in Costa Mesa, California in July 2008 has been dismissed.

TMZ is reporting that the plaintiff, Holli Griggs, has dropped the lawsuit, meaning the two parties likely settled out of court.

Griggs’ original claim that she miscarried as a result of Rampage repeatedly ramming into her car with his truck in an attempt to escape the accident scene so he could continue to evade police on a two-county chase was proven to not be the case as doctor’s reports showed no correlation between the two incidents.

For those not familiar with incidents surrounding the bizarre police chase, as unbelievable as the following synopsis may seem, trust us, it’s real.

Basically after Rampage lost his title to Forrest Griffin he holed himself up in his house drinking energy drinks and repeatedly watching the movie "The Secret." Apparently the film opened up Jackson’s eyes to some never before discovered life epiphany that only self-induced insomnia and its related psychosis could reveal.

After a few days of no food and no sleep, Jackson got the bright idea that he should head out in his monster truck and after a spirited game of bumper cars on the streets of a few California towns, he was eventually stopped and arrested by police after driving for miles on his tire rims. Even if he hadn’t been caught right away, the fact that his name and likeness were plastered all over the vehicle would likely have led police to Rampage’s door eventually.

And here we all thought Diego Sanchez was the crazy one in the UFC .

Now Jackson will have no excuses why he wasn’t mentally ready for the fight when he heads into his heavily anticipated UFC 114 match-up with Rashad Evans at the end of the month. He may need both the the win and the Knockout of the Night bonuses to pay off Griggs. His A-Team money likely won’t cut it.

Mr_Misanthropy >> i saw something about tha...wait, dude. BEER THREAD.
Mr_Misanthropy- May 4, 2010 at 12:30 pm
Speaking of Sam Adams- has anyone ever tried the "Utopias"? It's some crazy shit Sam makes that's 22.5% alcohol or some such and it takes several years to make each batch. Each bottle comes in a crazy copper replica of a brewing vat and it goes for about $200. I'm not a huge fan of barley wines and the like but I've always wanted to try this stuff. You're supposed to drink it neat in a glass similar to cognac.

It's pretty funny that the demographic for mma leads to other choice demographics....I think it must be what us alpha males like. We Lmk Rex...I'm game as a muthafugga.

Justscrappin>> i think we now officially have to start a beer talk thread in the forum.

Oh I in the presence of other micro-brew connoisseurs? Yes all the imperials from Sam Adams are solid. Also they made this longshot 6 pack like a year or so ago...then had 3 contributions from home brewers ( even though the info on them lead you to the fact that most of them worked for other major breweries ) that had won a contest. It was like a double ipa, a cranberry lambic and something else that was yummy. I'm in the wny area...and if any of you come here...try Southern Tier's Imperial ales that come in a 11% ipa called unearthly..and another good one called Gemini. They have a imperial pumking ale during the eating pumpkin pie. Then Itaca brewery puts out a flower power ipa...and a red hopped ipa called cascazilla. If your in Buffalo...go to pearl street brewery. Try their lake effect...or train can thank me later.

Pretty much any Imperial Series beer from Sam Adams is 4packofawesome. Find the style you dig, and pay attention: the ABV on these babies is probably twice what you're used to.

And I too have been impressed with Guusbuster's photoshop skills.

@Rex - Sam Adams Double Bock IS very good.
Mr_Misanthropy- May 4, 2010 at 1:28 am
Awright ther Mike- youse awight youse awight- sometimes you got so much news up on this bitch I can barely keep up, it's like a news explosion or some shit.

And I couldn't tell that wasn't the real poster because "Broke Big Bear Mountain" is on my sacred list of never-sees with Titanic, the yaya sisterhood, and anything starring Meg Ryan where she doesn't get naked and get pounded in the ass. shoop-wah-khan

*edit* i was consuming a 9.2% blonde, for those collecting census
KillDozer- May 3, 2010 at 10:25 pm
Hey Mike, can you do Gifs too? They would look really cool on the front page.

Is it 6pakofdwarves, or 6pakofmudbutt?

Mike Russell- May 3, 2010 at 7:09 pm
Thanks for the props, Rex. I'm trying to fill the void left by B-Fowlkes as best as I can. Looking forward to taking the reins of the UFC 113 PBP this weekend.FYI, I actually just slum it with CS3 and a few tricks I've picked up from fooling around with the program to get me through my PS for beginners course in college.
ReX13- May 3, 2010 at 6:54 pm
Seriously, though:

Mike Russell does not get enough credit for some serious photoshop skills. MRuss is probably packin' Creative Suite, not Elements like us plebians. It takes some serious knowledge and talent to turn out some work like he's been doing. Props, y'all, for realz.

For that matter, this man puts in hours on the fucking weekend. His ass is **always** live on CP and FB. Newdad is trying--can't you whiny little bastards meet him halfway?

Y'all, fucking Sam Adams Double Bock is fucking good.
Mr_Misanthropy- May 3, 2010 at 6:28 pm
I've found that retarded hair-dos and facial hair are one of the few reliable tells that nature has seen fit to give us when trying to predict a fight outcome. Very few people with X-treme hair ever succeed, except maybe early-Pride Heath Herring. As soon as his hair started really pushing the limits, his career went to shit. Take Johnathan Goulet's "this space for rent" or Hermes Franca's fabolous candi-coat maxi-paint fro for Tyson Griffin; I knew he was fucked. Spendin' all that time up in the salon, getting his shit did, when he should have been punching people in the face.

Pimpin' walk-outs, on the other hand, are a good predicator of victory. Genki Sudo, King Mo Lawal, Fedor's Ultimate Stare of Boredom, BJ Penn if he's skipping, Rampage if he's howling, The Spider if he's dancing like Michael Jackson. You can even see this universal law at work with Dan Hardy or Mayhem Miller, two men with fairly (but not Xtremely) retarded haircuts but decent pre-fight antics and/ or walk-outs, balancing the taint of the 'do against the mad juju of the walk-out enough to be fairly successful second-stringers.

Oh I don't know, something tells me Tiki does a lot of choking.

Mr_Misanthropy- May 3, 2010 at 6:12 pm
Yeah- its kind of hard to get behind a guy whose "unique marketing catch" is to dye "X-treme blonde" triangles in their already fairly suspect facial hair accoutrement- if you can catch what I'm pitchin' at.
ghostboner- May 3, 2010 at 5:40 pm
That photo was the closest Tiki ever made it to choking someone out for the rest of his days.
ReX13- May 3, 2010 at 5:16 pm
This looks shopped. I can tell by some of the pixels and seeing quite a few shops in my time.
HokeyPokeyLikeAoki- May 3, 2010 at 5:15 pm
In regards to Rampage needing money from his upcoming fight to pay off the settlment - he doesn't.

Griggs has already been paid, otherwise this case would've went to trial. Rampage's auto policy probably paid the policy limit. And its possible Rampage did not/will not even need to contribute a cent if he was covered under a big policy, which I'm sure he was.

Rashad in this one, , I think his lead in to the fight may be a little more settled than Rampage's, and I just think Rashad 's got what it takes to beat Rampage, who hasn't exactly been concentrating on his fighting skills lately.
