Rampage: I put out that 'rape' video to get fired

source: mmafighting.com

Aside from wanting to be like one of his favorite comedians, Dave Chappelle, Jackson revealed to Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting that he was actually trying to get kicked off the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) roster.

However, he also says UFC officials were hip to his master plan and saw right through it.

"The reason why it wasn't funny is because the guy released it too soon. It was supposed to be like Dave Chappelle type of stuff. I was supposed to do a series of videos and I was going to be like Dave Chappelle. I like and I wanted to be like Dave Chappelle. The guy liked the video so much he put it on an MMA website, I don't understand. I was supposed to say, this is what I hope happens to any guy, lowlife, trying to rape women. Look what happened to the guy. He got shot at and ended up being a tranny, a man. Plus at the same time, I was kind of like, I had to put it out there, the timing, I was trying to get kicked out of the UFC. I have to keep it real. I was trying. They (UFC) were smart. They knew it, they saw right through it."

When asked if he regretted putting out the video, Jackson had this to say:

"Now that the UFC didn't kick me out, yeah. It didn't do its job."

yup.obviously what Rampage says and does now shouldn't take away his achievements, but i have no sympathy for the guy. oh, you put out the video to get fired? how 'bout you just act like a grown up and quit, if the UFC is treating you so damn bad....

Rampage doesn't recognize how tons of fighters would do anything to be in his position, getting the attention he gets despite not putting amazing fights, and how the UFC values him. Didn't his fight with Rashad pull like 1 million or so? It takes 2 to tango but Quinton is clearly a draw despite his underwhelming performances.The way he talks it seems like he's trying to break even, fighting in some rinky dink promotion, having to fight injured and such. It reminds me of Nick Diaz but Rampage probably has made much more money than him.

How can anybody not like Rampage? He tells it like it is, not holding back. He doesn't conform to what the UFC want him to be. He seems cool to me.

You need to go away you fucking loser ..... everything you post is drivel, lacking in substance, but alas you're one hell of a troll.

I tried to disect what he said as well and the best I can come up with is he was implying that Bisping used something as bad as steroids but not steroids.

You can make Needle in the Haystack Buddy Jesus A-OK UG Poster Trading Cards and spray them with bubble gum scent and trade them with other people who take the internet too seriously while waiting for mom to call out that the Mac and Cheese is ready.
