"Forget TUF," Jackson told MMAFighting.com on Thursday. "I'm not interested in that."

Who in their right mind would give rampage a 3rd coaching gig on TUF. He was terrible both other times.

I guess they wanted the fighters on one of the teams to actually LEARN something, so thought "no, lets not put Rampage on there". He would show up, get his face on camera, stand and take Sonnen's epic one-liners, and see out the rest of the season.

I understand Rampage not wanting to fight another wrestler in his last fight in the UFC. But this makes Rampage atleast partly responsible for Chael vs Jones. Which is shitty.

We missed out on stuff like...

"If stupidity was a disease that was treatable by medicine, you would be the first one in line at the pharmacy, every morning."
"Treat me like a bitch."

I don't think I need to elaborate on who is who.

More like we missed cops being called to the UFC training center after Rampage finally snapped on Chael and went after him.

Rampage is so sensitive, Chael would have had him riled up in no time.

It would have been an entire season of Chael verbally owning Rampage. Rampage highlight comeback would be "wooo, you're breath stinks.." with that dumbass grin on his face.

This says alot about Rampage. He wants to fight Glover, it's probably his last fight and he wants a dog fight.

You guys aren't considering that TUF is a bigger paycheck than one fight... and Rampage declined. He doesn't like the way Sonnen fights, he doesn't like Sonnen full stop, no time for Chael.

Very respectable move from Jackson.

This would have been an interesting fight. I imagine it might have went the way of Rashad and Page's scrap.

I didn't really enjoy him on TUF either mate, but the stick he used to give Schoonover was quite funny..... poor guy got tortured.
