Just a few days ago, a video started making the rounds featuring Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight Quinton Jackson teaching fans how to pick up a girl. Really, it was designed to make light of a creeper in a parking garage trying to use chloroform and rip ties to capture and rape a woman.

In the video, which you can watch by clicking here, "Rampage" stealthily sneaks up on what looks like a woman but turns out to be a transsexual, and attempts to subdue her/him with the chloroform. Except she/he fights back and loudly proclaims, "You want to rape me? I'll rape you!"

She/he then proceeds to bite Jackson's ... member, let's call it.

Finally, he escapes and as he does so, mutters to himself out disgusting it is that he tried to rape a man he thought was a woman. The entire 1:28 video clip is tasteless and unfunny and has been met with scorn from the mixed martial arts (MMA) media.

Now, "Rampage" has made his first comments on the video and, to no one's surprise, he thought the whole thing was funny. But he's also claiming a deeper message.

"The rape video was funny,but I did it because I hope that happens 2 any low life that has 2 rape a woman,I'll get on car jackers next."

Well, that's one explanation for it.

Then again, the entire scenario is interesting. Miguel Torres was famously fired from the UFC for making a rape joke on Twitter that many felt was in poor taste. Now, Jackson makes an entire video with a rape joke in perhaps even worse taste and there's been no backlash outside of the media lambasting him for it.

What gives?

Maybe UFC President Dana White is simply ignoring Jackson's oddball actions, knowing full well there's only one fight left on his contract and once that's been fulfilled, the two will part ways.

Still, should there be some form of punishment for this video? Or is the media overreacting to it?

Thought, Maniacs?
