With proper meds and counseling many if not most people in these situations go on to lead perfectly normal lives ( my ex was a psychiatric counselor).

...btw, did Dana immediately terminate the contract of Rampage when he went ape shit and was charged with multiple felonies?
Jackson's issue wasn't drug or alcohol related, and Browning's already received a similar chance to get things under control. I wouldn't have faulted White/Zuffa for dropping either at the first sign of trouble, though. That's their business, literally.

Damn that sucks. I remember posting that I thought he had bi-polar disorder when the season was airing. Someone in my family is bi-polar it can be very devestating.

Best of luck to him.

That fact Rampage's episode didn't involve drugs or alcohol make his situation much more troubling to me. Not to mention the multiple felonies he was originally charged with!

I agree 100% with what Dana did. I was only asking if he terminated Rampage's contract as well when everything first went down.

There are people out there doing a great job making it look like a non-violent sport. Thatís not my job. My job is warfare. Iím over here to (expletive) kill..... Nick Diaz

It was obvious he had issues on TUF. Nobody is that damn tiny and that big of a douchebag. Dana made a mistake giving Browning anykid of contract in the UFC.

retardation...clever one.

He's obviously got alot more shit going on in his head then you can imagine. I don't like to see anyone go through shit like this, he needs to get away from the stress of training and losing fights and get a clear mind.

Is this really all that surprising? From his behavior on the show you could tell that it was probably going to happen at one point or another. Sucks for Junie, but in the long run it was probably for the best anyways. Hopefully he will find the help he needs because of this.

It's unfortunate.

He isn't the brightest bulb and I think it would be all the more painful, dealing with this type of issue and having a hard time articulating what you felt.

If this is true, hopefully the people surrounding him support him and help him get proper treatment and conselling.

I don't have a problem with his getting cut by UFC. He has more important things to worry about than fighting, such as dealing with these criminal charges.

Well, disorder or not. He's juts a downright nasty human being. So forgive me if i don't feel too much sympathy for him.
