Rampage Will Be Fighting In The UFC Again

New, 4 comments

Remember when I said that Rampage would fight in the UFC again?  I mean it's not like I'm predicting the future or anything, because everybody knows it's going to happen.  Well, he's spoken via the Triumph United site and had this to say about his movie/fight career:

"It’s cool doing this movie! It is fun, but lots of work. I am playing a character that I thought was the coolest man alive growing up. I used to walk around my house pretending I was B.A. Baracus, reciting his lines to my family and friends. It proves to me how good God is. I'm not a psychic.  I can’t say [when I'll fight next]. I have other movie offers already and I really miss my kids, it’s a lot easier on your family doing movies then at a ten week fight camp. I really have to think things through. I’m not saying that I don’t want to fight (but) we’ll see what the future holds."

It seems that Rampage Jackson backtracks on his retirement post each time he speaks now.  He hasn't fully contradicted himself yet, but he's inching closer and closer to basically saying that he's going to fight again.  However, it'll be interesting to see how the fans will view him then.  It seems that the majority of them have kind of turned against him because of his sudden retirement, not to mention the image that's being projected on TUF 10 right now as a coach that doesn't care about his fighters.
