Quinton Jackson upset with UFC? So it's just another Tuesday in the neighborhood, right?
"I talked to Rampage yesterday for about an hour and a half before all the tweets started and, you know, Rampage just lost and I think Rampage takes his losses hard. We'll see what happens. I'm always on again off again with him as it is anyway. But listen, I have no beef with Rampage. I don't dislike Rampage or anything like that. I just think he takes the losses really hard and he takes criticism really hard too."
"Rampage" was hardly competitive in the bout but there are a variety of reasons for that, including a knee injury suffered during training camp. That's the same injury he aggravated during the course of the contest, greatly hampering his performance, which wasn't up to snuff to begin with.
On top of all that, he badly missed weight thanks to a combination of his health and a regiment of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Or at least that's what he claimed to Fighters Only. In the same interview with MMA Fighting, White revealed that Jackson told he and Lorenzo Fertitta it was all made up.
The plot thickens, Maniacs. Thoughts on all this?
