For the past few weeks, every time a reporter asks Dana White about Rampage he responds with basically the same answer, “we’ll work it out.” Maybe so, but the tone coming from Rampage is still highly confrontational. In fact, I think it’s actually getting worse.
The UFC 104 main event prompted Rampage to publish another blog post on his official website — this one titled “UFC looked like assholes.” Because of the bad decision in the Machida-Shogun fight, Rampage says for the first time in his life, he’s ashamed to be part of MMA and he blames it on the UFC.
I was watching the fight this weekend with the director of the A Team movie, the movie crew & a couple of actors & I never been ashamed to be a part of MMA till now. The UFC looked like assholes this weekend. The main event was boring. I anticipated that because let’s be real.. Machida is a boring fighter. But Shogun getting robbed like that was pretty cut throat. Then you hear Joe Rogan say you “you have to beat the champ to be a champ.” & that made me think the UFC are full of shit! Not to be whiny here but I still don’t feel like I’ve been beat in the UFC.. but I’m not champ anymore. If the UFC gives Shogun an immediate rematch because of the controversial loss then that would validate everything I have said about the UFC in my recent posts & why I’m pissed at the UFC. But yet he deserves one & so have I deserved one against Forrest.
The reason why I was ashamed of the UFC is because some people around me were saying that the UFC is becoming corrupt like boxing & asked me is that stuff real? Most of the people from the A-Team movie were just watching it because I was watching it & they don’t know much about MMA & were starting to get into it but last night they didn’t have anything good to say about my sport. So I was so ashamed.
The UFC needs to get some new judges before I even think about coming back. I want the hardcore fans to go back & watch all the fights that you thought was kinda shady with the judges in the UFC & TUF & write down the names of the judges so you guys can complain & have a voice. Do your homework. This sport wouldn’t be what it is without the fans. Its hard for me to believe that the UFC is so successful & has over 100 shows & can’t tell who wins a fight. How is it that they can’t tell who wins a fight on an important title fight?
Hmm…so I guess Rampage doesn’t know the UFC doesn’t have any control over the judges or the lousy decisions they sometimes make. Being a professional fighter, one would think he would know the officials are employed by the athletic commissions, but apparently not.
That’s just what got him started though. He saw Machida’s lackluster performance as an opportunity to take more shots at Rashad Evans which quickly turned into more UFC and TUF bashing.
One good thing came out of the fight last night. Rashad looked more like a bitch. If he would have just tried to fight Machida instead of just nutting up he probably could have done better. I saw every last one of Machida’s weaknesses this last weekend. No wonder TUF is editing Rahsad to try to make him look good cause they need all their fighters to sell tickets. They never should have tried to make me look bad cause I’m the wrong person to pull that type of crap with. Cause I don’t give a fuck about the TUF show or about the UFC. There’s not another fighter on this planet that can do what I do & they know it. I don’t need them. All they did was fucken piss me off. & any fighter on my team who says they lost a fight because of my coaching can fucken kiss my ass & say that shit to my face.
Me doing TUF 10 & seeing how they edited it now & seeing how Wes Shivers lost his fight is making me very skeptical about the UFC. Note to TUF: Anybody involved in making the TUF show do me a big favor… Don’t look at me cause you’re fake. Don’t talk to me cause you’re fake. Don’t even think about me cause you’re fake. & if you do you might just get cussed the fuck out.
Last week, Dana said, “If [Rampage] wants to meet, he can come down here and meet me. I’m not going to chase him.” Well, the way Rampage is talking, if Dana sticks to his word, he’s probably going to be waiting for awhile.
