10:50 AM ET 03.11 | Former UFC light heavyweight champ and PRIDE superstar Quinton "Rampage" Jackson has been expressing his discontent with the UFC again since his UFC 144 defeat to Ryan Bader last month. Choosing Twitter as his medium, Jackson went on a tirade recently in which he declared his intention to fight one last time in the UFC before moving on to greener pastures. Last night, Jackson took it one step further.

I'm so glad to see Mayweather's glassy eyed hostage photo finally disappear from the top of the MMA T&R queue.

Dana should just keep this biiitch under contract but not give him another fight....prevent him from doing anything but sitting on his ****. If he's gonna be such a little whiny biiitch, why be kind to him?

That is what he does with a lot of his fighters already, dana is pretty much turning into the don king of MMA.

except that those fighters are trying to act like the NFL....follow a contract as long as it benefits you but the moment it isn't to your advantage, reneg on your contract, go back on your word, fail to live up to your responsibilities that you agreed to as an adult....

I don't see any greener pastures than the UFC. It's the big stage. Regardless of whether or not you like Dana White he has made the UFC and MMA into a mainstream sport. Rampage is getting old...his marketability is decreasing hence the pissy statement on twitter.

Well, they'll probably make a second A-Team movie, so there's that.

Except Don King didn't do anything to help boxing. One could argue he (and Bob Arum) had a lot to do with ruining it. Love him or hate him, Dana White is good for MMA.

Page has one more fight on his contract. How about the UFC agrees to bring back Tim Sylvia to fight Rampage for free at a catch weight and then fires them both right after the fight? Or is that just me being sarcastic?

Rampage isn't UFC level talent anymore at anything but talking trash. He's Tito Ortiz Lite.

March 13, 2012  10:51 AM ET

Roid Rage is just hoping he has a choice one way or the other....

I think he should schedule Roid Rage vs Tito and then fire them both in the middle of the cage BEFORE the fight....

At least Rampage has his acting career to fall back on ....I can't wait to see his version of "A Street Car Named Desire"

March 13, 2012  07:46 PM ET

oh well, he is mainly mad because he lost and isn't the talk of UFC anymore. He is a joke now.

Instead of Rampage or Road Rage or Roid Rage, we should just call him The Mad Cow

I hate this guy, and I mean I REALLY hate this guy. Dana should've kicked him out of the UFC long before his string of losses, inability to make weight, and the fact that he drove his truck over a pregnant woman (causing her miscarriage). Rampage is not good for the game, and the game is certainly not good for him. Rampage should quit while he can still remember his childhood, and do simple math. Taking too many shots to the head is no laughing matter, and even though, like I said, I hate the guy - the best thing for him would be to stop absorbing punches, and find another career.

NOPE....the woman's OWN doc admitted that he had NO part in the miscarriage....she already had complications that caused it....it's the official report...otherwise he'd have been charged with something that would have landed him in prison for several years...maybe not murder but something close...

He could enter the square ring of the WWE.

I wouldn't count out that possibility....although, he'd probably do better in Japan's fake wrestling scene....people over there actually like him...

He definitely has the verbal aptitude...
