It's not secret that Rampage Jackson did not leave the UFC on good terms with the promotion and yesterday in an interview with Rick J. Lee, he expanded on his issues with his former employer:

"I met Bjorn and I just felt his energy. You look him in the eyes when you talk to him and you know like, ‘Man, this guy gets it!' I heard of Bellator, but, I didn't know how it was. The other shows kind of leave a bad taste in your mouth. Terry Trebilcock from King of The Cage, before I met Bjorn, was the only promoter that was cool to me. Dana, he started off cool, but when you get on Dana's bad side then you might as well be an alien. But when I met Bjorn, man, he talked to me, he explained things and we sat down and you just feel his energy. And you can tell he don't talk bad about anybody else. You always got to be worried about other people that talk bad about you because as soon as you walk away there's a good chance people talk bad about you. I'm sure if someone crosses him he's going to say something, me and him are a lot alike. I feel like he keeps it real. What he just said about pay-per-views, I totally agree with that. He's not going to cram it down fans throats; every month do a pay-per-view.

I think that's what UFC is doing. I think the UFC now is messing up the sport. They just doing a lot of bad things and I just feel like Bellator, the way they doing things is kind of the future of the sport."

Ask Eddie Alvarez what happens when you get on Bjorn's bad side. And you didnt see Dana mess with Rampage when he wanted out. I see Rampage doing a LOT of complaining about Dana and the UFC but dont hear Dana complaining about him. Phone Post

man, why won't he just shut the fuck up talking about the UFC.

same for Tito, they spend most of the press conference talking about the UFC or making allusions to it.

and WTF is this "energy" thing Tito and Rampage harp about?

is Bjorn Rebney the fucking Dalai Lama?

Well, now he's luckily out of the UFC so he doesn't have to worry about their bad ways anymore.

He is like a spurned lover that will never get over that one relationship.

 

So he makes up lies to make himself feel better

They're using their beef with ufc to build up their PPV.. Every time Wampage whines about ufc it's front page, even though he's saying the same goddam thing every time. Tito talks shit too, but he always has, he's the same tito that he was before, and I can respect that. I hope Tito smashes Rampage, specifically with wrestling.. Phone Post

Yeah eventually Bjorn is going to smack him and tell him to stop bringing them up, and then Rampage will move to OneFC says Bellator stopped him from being himself.

Nonsense. Whether you like Dana or hate him, he went to bat for Rampage when a lot of people wouldn't if they were in Dana's shoes, including myself.

First Rampage couldn't figure out how to lift his leg to block leg kicks making himself irrelevant in his division.

Then he bites the hand that fed him (very well I might add. What else would Rampage be doing for a living if it were not for MMA?)

And now he just continues talking himself into obscurity constantly badgering anyone who will listen to him about the UFC not kissing his ass like the Japanese did.

He loved Japan so much, he just needs to take his ass back to Japan and try out Sumo wrestling. That way he has an excuse to wear an adult diaper acting like a baby.

The world these days...I thought I'd never see the day where someone talks shit about someone who bailed them out after they committed vehicular homicie and went on a police chase.

Both Tito and Rampage say that what really pissed them off was Dana giving his opinion after the fights.

He had the gall to criticize their performance after their many, many losses. According to them this is what its mostly about.

2 veterans cage fighters whining and talking about new age energy shit.

This seems like am older interview. I remember reading it a while back when he first signed with Bellator.

Kind of funny though. He says UFC is messing up mma, but the promotion he signed with is doing cross-promotion with TNA, and that to him is legit. Phone Post 3.0

Why are people getting so sensitive? Dana White talks shit about people all the time and says fast worse things about other fighters constantly, so who cares if Rampage wants to return the favour. It's good for the sport.

Rampage is so full of contradictions. I actually wonder if he is just somehow oblivious to all of them or it is a conscious decision to always do it.
