The battle between UFC President Dana White and former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson rages on with White taking the most recent shot at his one-time homie saying, “I’m disgusted with the way [Rampage is] acting to be honest with you.”
As you already know, Jackson has been going on a “Rampage” through his online blog since retiring from MMA to pursue a future on the silver screen.
Rampage has made disparaging comments that portrayed his former employer in a poor light, however nothing that other fighters haven’t whispered in the past. He also voiced his opinion on how the editing team for “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights” is portraying him.
“The show is for entertainment and it could be edited in many different ways, which doesn’t always tell the true story,” Jackson wrote.
As always, White had a response to Jackson’s claim as he jokingly said, “… The editing of the show, do you see his voice dubbed over? Are we putting up cardboard cutouts of him?”
Following Jackson’s run-in with the law last year, it was the UFC who did what they could to help him out. That could possibly be why White’s so upset.
“Mine and Rampage’s relationship is not great right now. I’m very disappointed in him. We’ve been there for him and we’ve done a lot of stuff for Rampage, on camera and off camera,” White explained to MMA Connected.
If you read Jackson’s latest blog, he hinted at a possible return to the Octagon, however he and Dana clearly have a long way to go before these fences can be mended.
Although White would be willing to take his former friend back, he appears to have discovered exactly what changed in Rampage over the last couple of months.
“I’ve tried to talk to the guy as a friend but he’s so far out there right now. The worst thing that could ever happen to a fighter is a Hollywood agent gets his hands on him,” said White.
For now, Rampage continues to have the time of his life on the set of “The A-Team” movie where he is playing the role of B.A. Baracus.
“I pity the foo who says MMA fighters can’t act!”
