This is one of the reasons I can't stand Tito- why is he talking for Rampage? Tito needs to put his big Dome where it belongs- between Jenna's legs. He pulled this crap with GSP and his contract with the UFC and he was talking out of his ass yet he involved GSP without his permission.

Whether or not this is actually true it should have been brought up by Rampage and not Big Head. There may be reasons that Jackson did not want to talk about this or have it out in the open- either way it should have been his decision to speak about it- not Tito.

I don't remember who it was(pretty sure one of the guys of TUF, perhaps Koscheck or Leben) saying that they actually nearly lost money fighting in the UFC.

You seem to forget the to add the in the sponsorship money, PPV%, locker room bonuses, FOTN, SOTN, KOTN bonuses, etc. etc. You are just talking about the PURSE money....

"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann

Great point Walker.

I do feel bad for Rampage though because he seems to not have a whole lot of business sense. He needs a good camp around him to make him feel secure and I am not sure he will get that with Wolfslair. He should've joined Jackson's or something. The dude just needs some good friends to watch his back and help him out.

Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21

Tito better be careful. I'm not saying he's wrong, but he has been before. He's going to get himself sued one of these days.

It was Kalib Starnes, I think he said it cost him more to train than he earned

Yeah.
But, he probably ran away from his bank statement when it came in the mail.

He didn't rip him off. He charged for his services, and Rampage paid him for them. The title of this post should be "Rampage is a moron".

Frankly, I'm glad. JI and Rampage are two douche bags in same trash bin.

does it mean 65k a fight, a year or what?

if its a fight then that's ridiculous, but i guess with the long lay off he had i think Ibarra needed to get paid.
