“Despite the way I feel about the UFC and Dana White and some of the fans who don’t know what the hell’s going on, I am happy to be back and be ready to whoop some ass and stuff like that. Don’t take me the wrong, but I don’t think people understand I’m a human being and I have feelings. Say you do everything you can for somebody or say you spoil a kid, you have kids that are spoilt and kids that are spoilt rotten. You do everything for them and they just walk all over you, they don’t do nothing back for you cos you’ve spoilt them rotten so you get kinda sour. That’s kinda where I’m at right now, I’m kinda sour…PRIDE did the same thing to me. I did everything I could do for PRIDE but they never really promoted me right, they treated me like crap and look at them now. That’s all I’ve gotta say. No matter what you say about me I’m still a child of God and he’s the only person I’m gonna stay loyal to no matter what happens. Everybody else, if they’re not loyal to me they can kiss my natural black ass, and guess what…? My ass is naturally black (laughs).”
—Rampage Jackson in an interview with MMA Bay talking about how he currently feels about fighting and the UFC
Is it too soon to start wondering if Rampage will leave the UFC once his current contract is up? If he’s serious about putting his acting career before his fighting career, there is another organization that would be a much better fit for him. Of course, Rampage’s first language is money and I don’t think the UFC would let him get away as easily as they did with Dan Henderson. I don’t know how many fights Rampage has left on his contract, but I could see this turning into a major story once he fulfills them if relations don’t improve.
