Quinton "Rampage" Jackson

As you can tell from the headline, I am a huge MMA fan.  I have been following it since 2005 when I start fighting myself.  One charechter who has been around since then is our dear friend, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.  He has been one of my favorite fighters since then but he has always had one problem.  He never got to hold the Pride belt and he barely got the UFC belt. Basically, he is unable to compete and maintain his position at the highest levels.



This is because he really loves money. I mean, he REALLY loves money.  While people like Brock Lesnar invest 200k into a training camp, rampage will never spend more than 30k on his.  He has never been a member of a huge camp (because camps charge money) and because of that his skills have never evolved past boxing and wrestling.  Now, he is getting into acting and his skills will further decline into nothingness.  At least he will always be entertaining, that is something that will never go away. I am gonna miss you Rampage, at least I got to see you hold the UFC Belt!

  13. Hah, a money loving fighter? Now here's a guy I can agree with. In a way, it's sad that you need to invest that kind of money into being a good fighter, because this is like the one sport where one should be able to hone your skills on your own.

  14. Every fighter's skills are gonna decline. Sure full time fighters like Lesnar might be competitive for a few more years than Rampage. But when his body wont let him compete; he'll probably wish he had made himself a little more versatile. So good luck to Rampage and I hope I get to see him in more movies soon.

  17. Hm... does training camps factor in that much?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah. Kind of sucks when a good athlete you like starts infiltrating other media and forgetting why he was so liked in the first place.
