Dana White: 'Rampage' Jackson made the right decision by doing A-Team


Props: Miami Herald


"I get guys all the time -- because the UFC is getting so big - doing movies, but they're usually movies that go straight to DVD, and you wouldn't even want to watch them on DVD, but Rampage made the right decision. The A-Team is the big summer hit this year, and from what I'm hearing from the guys in Hollywood, Rampage [nailed] it. He did an awesome job. Everything worked out. He and I made up, and the fight is still happening. It's definitely not a bad thing, but I don't know how many people will actually be going to see The A-Team movie knowing that Rampage Jackson is a UFC fighter. I don't know. We'll have to see how it works out."

UFC President Dana White is surprisingly pro-Rampage after months of squabbling over Jackson's decision to ditch the UFC 107 card in Memphis to play B.A. Baracus in the upcoming A-Team movie. The former TUF 10 coach has been very vocal in video interviews about the way the UFC has mistreated him after coming back to the promotion that made him a household name in the states. Is Dana simply playing nice on the heels of UFC 114? Or does he really have Rampage's best interests in mind?
