Rampage: UFC hated me for KOing Liddell


Since announcing a new contract with Bellator FC, Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson has not been shy about airing greivances with his former employer, the UFC. Today in an interview with Bleacher Report, Jackson revealed what he believes to the source of his problems with the UFC;

"Dana White really wanted me because I was the last guy Chuck (Liddell) wanted to get his revenge on," Jackson explained when speaking to Bleacher Report. "Everybody was really nice to me, I'm telling you when I beat up Marvin Eastman, everybody, people behind the scenes at the UFC they're really like a big family. 

"Chuck was part of the family. They was all really nice to me, like a hog going to the slaughter, and then after I beat Chuck right away like 90 percent of them hated my guts. They didn't talk to me no more, they didn't smile at me when I came back there, it made me feel awkward."

Fame doesn't bring out the worst in people- it merely exposes it, IMO.   Cindy

They hated him so much they bailed him out of jail and paid for his legal defense rather than just cutting him.

Jackson was passable in it. His agent was thinking it would catapult him to bigger things, that he could be the next Duane The Rock Johnson. But nothing about the movie stood out, including his performance. The film did enough business overseas to keep it from being a massive bomb, but it did absolutely nothing to elevate Jackson either in the mainstream or even in MMA.To the guy that said it was not a flop, a larger mainstream film needs to do roughly double the budget to break even. The budget includes only the cost of creating the film and does not take into account any marketing costs. Smaller films can do less since nowhere near as much is spent hyping them.Jackson seems to be under the impression that the reports of projects being under development for him means they will happen. Nothing happens until the cameras start rolling. I know tons of authors that have sold the film options and had projects get to the point of directors and actors, only to have things fall apart at the last second.

Maybe they hated him because he is an asshole?
