Re: Rampage Jackson: I'm Done Fighting

I think he's saying he is done, period. The UFC & Dana White have this thing about enforcing contracts though. Rampage is a bit unstable. Maybe it is just an emotional outburst?

Re: Rampage Jackson: I'm Done Fighting

He'll be back and fighting within six months. Don't think for one second that Dana and Page aren't playing this up (Yes, I read he says he's done) so when he does return it builds the hype and brings in more PPV buys. Just wait and see......

Agreed.

And don't think Dana hasn't already reminded him about the "accident" and how there was zero fall out for Rampage afterward.

Rampage might be done -- fighting for anyone else. My understanding is that the UFC's contracts are pretty tight.

if he thinks he's got a solid acting career ahead of him... well, he isn't exactly Mr. T.

Re: Rampage Jackson: I'm Done Fighting

Rampage and I share a few friends, we're not tight or anything, but I've been around him enough to know he's a pretty emotional guy. I think he's just venting without thinking it through. I have no doubt he'll fight again, and sooner than later.

Re: Rampage Jackson: I'm Done Fighting

Good luck to Rampage and whatever he does. Having an alcoholic/drug addict Dad must have been hard.

Re: Rampage Jackson: I'm Done Fighting

Randy came back. Tito came back. Rampage will come back.

Where's he gonna' make as much $? Acting? Doubt it. Strikefarce? Doubt it.
