Quinton Jackson responds to Dana White calling him a "baby"


It appears the feud between Quinton Jackson and UFC President, Dana White is heating up as Jackson responds to White's accusations of calling his a "baby" in his decisions to leave the UFC and retire from mixed martial arts. Jackson responds on his personal blog just moments ago.

Make no mistake the UFC treated me a lot better than Pride. If you get hurt in training in a UFC fight then will send you to the best doctors. If you get hurt in a Pride fight most of the time they will tell me "oh you better take care of that!" The UFC will always let you know in a timely matter who you will be fighting & give you enough time to train but with Pride if I knew 4 weeks ahead I would be happy cause most times they just give you a 2 weeks notice. Pride will rip you off on your merchandising but the UFC would find someway to hook you up on merchandising deals. Pride will make fights easier for certain fighters inside the ring (like standing up fights early). With the UFC whatever happens happens. The only thing I see the UFC needs to fix in this area is to get better judges. Ones who know about MMA & not from the boxing world.
The reason why I'm talking about all this is that I feel like this whole situation could have been avoided if UFC would have respected me more & rescheduled the fight about a month or more in my hometown, which I know fights can be rescheduled because of the Matt Hughes & Matt Serra was postponed due to injuries. Instead, Dana went on the internet & started talking bad about my decision. All we had to do was come to a certain type of argreement or understanding, which later came after a lot of trash talk from Dana. My manager flew to Vegas & talked to them & tried to work things out like a MAN. & still I keep quite & I didn't talk trash back on the internet. The only reason why I'm even talking now is because I feel like I owe my fans an explanation because I am a MAN, a real MAN. Yeah I made good money with the UFC more than Pride, but I made both shows more money than they made me. I didn't care too much about Pride treating me like crap cause I was an American in a Japanese company. Now in my own country, I feel like I'm being disrepected. Everything is not about how much money you make. You could be the richest man in the world but if nobody repsects you then it don't mean shit. You can't buy respect. It should be earned. & thats what I'm all about.

Now Rashad wanna put his two cents in. Rashad remains to be a boy under me. He wins a few fights, and some of them I thought the judges fell asleep during the fight & woke up & saw him playing with his nipples & guessed he won. He knocked Chuck Liddel out when Chuck wasn't even the same man anymore. & now he thinks he's on my level. Yeah he talks about how he beat Forrest & I lost. But when I fought Forrest that was the worst Rampage I had ever seen. & I still know in my heart I won that fight. So now he's Mr. All Cocky & says I got a big mouth & talk a lot of smack. If my memory serves me correctly, he's the one that got into my face after the Jardine fight & started talking trash when he was the one that was originally supposed to fight me that night, but he told Dana on the phone he didn't want to fight. He wanted to keep his belt longer. Now, I'm not saying wether or not I would have beaten Machida, but I wouldn't have went out like a bitch like the way he did. So I'm the one that was looking forward to the Rashad fight the most. I have always been a fighter my whole life. As a kid my family treated me like shit which made me the person who I am today. This is why when I meet people I treat people the way I want to be treated (unless they approach me wrong or piss me off). I grew up thinking that I wasn't even important to my family which made me not even care about myself. That's why I can get knee-ed in the face 15 times & come back for more. That's why I can get my legs seriously hurt in a fight & still try to win. Thats why I can get my ribs broken in a fight & not tap out because my whole life I never thought I mattered to anybody or anybody cared about me. But now I have kids that love me & care about me & I'm not used to people caring about me but it feels good! I'm a very loyal person. Wolves are the most loyal animals on the planet. I was very loyal to the UFC, but now I owe all my loyalty to my kids... the ones who really care for me. The majority of my fights on the street I fought for free & they all were with emotion. I am a fighter, I will always be a fighter but my professional fights that were fought with emotion, I ended them all in devestating fashion. I am the wrong fighter that should fight pissed off professionally. I don't even consider it fair. So Rashad says he will fight me for free. I will gladly meet him at any gym & fight him just to shut his mouth up. & I mean that for real!

When I told Dana I did not want my belt back & that I just wanted to make money, it was around the time when they gave me Vanderlei & actually it was around the same time when my mind wasn't right (my mind was at TRUCK status) & that's the way I felt because I felt I had been robbed out of my belt. After the Jardine fight I did want my belt back because my family was so proud of me when I was champion & I want to make my family proud cause now I finally feel like my family cares about me & they accept me & this is what I've been wanting my whole childhood... for my family to like me. If I got to beat some ass for my family to like me, so be it. But now, I'm a grown man & I'll be damned if anybody disrespects me. I'm not having it, it's not happening!" -Post by Rampage Jackson on September 24, 2009 at 12:18pm

You beat me to it...

I can see this feud lasting a while. Still think Jackson was a little naive though...

That was a good read! I don't care what others say but I respect Jackson's decision even though I am disappointed the way he left, mid way through the TUF show being aired.

But damn, I would love to see him fight Rashad at some broken down gym LMAO!!!

The only thing that i find kinda funny about this is him saying that he made those organizations more money off of him then he made for himself. Of course they made more money then he did, it wouldnt be too good of a business plan for them to be paying there fighters more then they made for themselves. Other then that, he comes off pretty respectable and im willing to bet that this is pretty close to the truth. It seems like he is trying to keep it above the belt to leave the door open to the UFC.

Doesnt really address the baby comment... more of a rambling elaboration on the first blog post. Gotta feel for 'Page, he's obviously going through some shit, obviously at odds with himself and his decision.

Would welcome him back to the game with open arms, but maybe he needs a year off. Anyways, best of luck to him.

Rampage is doing the right thing. He had to take this movie role because he is seeing with Chuck, Randy, etc that he cannot fight forever; and he is a marketable personality for Hollywood. A popular black MMA fighter, one of the most popular personalities in the fastest growing sport in the world, and a guy who has proven time and time again that he is comfortable in front of a camera and/or mic. Rampage could have a good movie career if he plays his cards right and that is exactly what he is trying to do.

I was never a huge fan of Quentin's but I support his every move and decision in regard to this entire scenario, and I will go see A Team because I also loved that show as a kid and because I want to see Rampage succeed outside of the ring. There is also a little part of me that wants to see Hollywood put Dana White in his place. The guy is a complete douchebag.

My thoughts exactly, he's dealing with some shit and his fame only illuminates even further. He's gotta do what he thinks is best but I hope we see him again.
