"No disrespect to Rampage, but my dude Rashad Evans whupped that ass. When he had that UFC fight against Rashad Evans and he lost, I felt like that was me."
“'Don't you know nigga? I play Mr. T (A-Team character 'B.A. Baracus') better than you! I pity the fool!' I went in [to the audition] and I killed the Mr. T role on my screen test."
“They were going to have to fly a trainer overseas to get me right. They didn't want to do that and Rampage was available so they went with him. I ain't looking forward to seeing Rampage as Mr. T. Maybe now they can redo it and put Rashad in there. After you get your ass kicked, I don't know if you can play Mr. T."
“You can tell The Game this: if he wants to battle me, I can battle him. Here’s what we can do - we can do a freestyle [rap] battle against each other , see who wins. Then we can act off against each other, see who wins. Then he can get in the motherfuckin’ cage with me and we’ll see who wins. For real, tell The Game I said that, I am for real. I will step in his world if he will step in mine,” Jackson told Fighters Only.
“I didn’t see his screen test but I can tell you what is wrong with what he said - I didn’t play Mr T, I played BA Baracus! If he wants to play Mr T. he can play Mr. T. I want all my fans and all the MMA fans to go and watch this A-Team movie and then they can tell him too: I don’t play Mr T. I am BA Baracus!”
“When they do a movie about Mr T’s life story, let The Game do it! He can go round saying ‘I pity the fool’ and put his gold chains on and act like Mr T. He is a totally different person to BA Baracus. Mr T played BA Baracus and made him so famous and popular that people got the two confused. They think BA Baracus is Mr T.”
