If UFC president Dana White knows what’s best for him, he should never utter the name “Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson” ever again – this according to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (pictured). Since leaving the promotion to join forces with Bellator MMA, the UFC’s biggest rival, Rampage and fellow bitter former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz have embarked on a national tour talking smack about their time with the planet’s premier mixed martial arts promotion. On this week’s edition of “UFC Tonight,” White was asked about Rampage’s recent remarks, and as expected, he was more than happy to return fire. “Rampage Jackson wanted to leave the UFC,” White stated. “We let him leave the UFC. We did a lot of things for that guy, a lot of things, personal and professional. Now he just goes out and cries about everything. The world is against Rampage Jackson. He’s supposed to be one of the toughest guys in the world, and all he does is cry about everything.” As we all know full well, word travels fast in this day and age. It moves even quicker courtesy of Twitter. Obviously, Rampage was none too pleased to learn what his former boss had to say about him. “@danawhite if I was u I would keep my name out of your mouth. If people ask u a question about me n a interview it’s best 2 say no comment,” tweeted immediately after White’s interview. Rampage and Ortiz headline Bellator’s first pay-per-view broadcast on November 2. Just as certain as the day is long, there will be more UFC and White bashing coming from the two leading up to their scrap.
