Rampage wants to finish his contract and leave UFC forever

Rampage wants to finish his contract and leave UFC forever

The coolest thing about Rampage playing B.A. Baracus from The A-Team is Rampage playing B.A. Baracus from the A-Team. If you told me that during TUF 10 you didn’t picture Rampage with a fro-hawk and a feather in his ear, then I know I could never trust you to tell the truth. I wonder what the over/under is on Rampage practicing his ‘I pity the fool’ in front of a bathroom mirror. That’s money I’m willing to wager (and lose…again). Fighters Only Magazine interviewed Rampage Jackson about his return to UFC and the dude says he’s never really been a fan of MMA.

I don’t know how much I ever loved the fight game, to be honest. Most fighters these days join fighting because they became a fan of it. When I started I wasn’t a fan of it — I’ve been a fighter my whole life. I just thought it was a blessing that God could give me something I could make money doing. When I was a kid I got tired of fighting. I didn’t want to be a fighter anymore. But I was just good at it. It was just something that was in my blood. Some people are fighters.”

“I like it a lot less than I used to. It’s no secret, everybody knows about the falling out I had with the UFC, and it’s just unfortunate that they’re trying to blame me for doing this movie.”

“They’ve said some things and done some things I don’t agree with — that’s not the way I do business. I’m a loyal person so I take care of people who take care of me, but people who don’t take care of me, I don’t take care of them. So I’m done with the UFC. They can’t ask me for anymore favors. Nothing. I just want to finish my contract and get out of there, do my own thing. Dana lied to me. He told me I didn’t have to fight Rashad, I could fight Machida. I did the show and then after that he told me I had to fight Rashad.”

Rampage doesn’t want to fight Evans but would have preferred a title shot at the light heavyweight belt? Damn him for that logical assertion on his fight career. [Source]
