Rampage nearly sued for fighting

source: mmaweekly.com
 

There is no denying the pressure a fighter can feel when heading into one of the biggest fights of his career. For Quinton "Rampage" Jackson that pressure was compounded by his recent role in the "A-Team" movie, which almost resulted in a lawsuit, as well as contemplating future commitments that still loom overhead.

Jackson said very candidly after his loss to Rashad Evans that he indeed does have regrets about leaving the UFC to film the movie, and that the pressure continued to build as Saturday night’s fight grew nearer.

"I never had any pressure like this my whole fighting career. I focused really hard, and I trained really hard on this fight, but me having this damn movie. I kind of almost regret doing the damn movie and stuff now," Jackson said.

The movie company that signed Jackson to reprise the role of B.A. Baracus, made famous by Mr. T in the 1980's television show, threatened a lawsuit when the found out he was fighting in the UFC on Saturday. Jackson didn't mention if it was because the date so closely coincided with the release of the A-Team movie, which is set for June 11.

It's just more excuses from Rampage, this is his M.O. I'm surprised he didn't throw Wolfslair under the bus. I guess he'll wait for his next loss before he does that.

you idiots, it's PR for the movie...they're in the business of making $$$so they(Page and Fox) are creating they're version of "hype"(fabricated controversy) so that the movie gets more coverage ...Page is way smarter than most of you morons.He's a fighter and a business man.He knows his fighting body won't last forever.
