    Rampage Jackson: "I'm hanging it up"

    Page is done. From BloodyElbow, reporting on a blog from Page's personal site (can't access that for some reason):
    The UFC has done a lot for me but I think I have done more for them Ö this movie role came about that I have been trying to get for over a year & as soon as I found out I was close to getting it, I called Dana right away & asked to push the Memphis fight back just a month or so. I told him what this movie role meant to me. I told him that I used to bond with my father watching the tv show as a kid when my parents where still married & it represents the memories I had with my father when we lived together. My dad became an alcohalic & addicted to drugs & we grew apart. But after my dad got his life back together, I was so proud of my dad & I told him I would always take care of him in the future & make him proud of me. My dad & I are still very big fans of the show & I am basically doing this for the childhood memories I had spending time in front of the tv with my dad. Dana went on the internet & mocked me because of that & I still did nothing. Dana & I finally talked & we made up & then after that he went back on the internet & said some bullshit & he was talking bad about the movie when information is not even supposed to be released & talking about payments which is not even true could really hurt my future acting career, which could very well last longer than my fighting career. Iím not like Randy Couture. My body has been getting so many different injuries that I wont be able to fight until my forties & neither do I want to fight that long. So I feel like my second career could be in jeopardy.. so Iím done fighting. Iíve been getting negative reviews from the dumb ass fans that donít pay my bills or put my kids though college. So Iím hanging it up. Iím gonna miss all my loyal fans but hopefully theyíll follow me to my new career & I will gain more loyal fans along the way. & all you hater fans out there can kiss my big black hairy ass! & anybody that donít like what I just said can come try to kick my ass! I still feel the UFC is a great organization and I felt like I was very loyal to them but they didnít respect my loyalty but I wish the UFC the best. I did a lot of things for them. I wish no bad blood between us but I have kids & a family back in Memphis to provide for & thats all that matters to me!
    Unbelievable. As Luke Thomas points out, also on BE, Page has always had difficulty with motivation in terms of training. Additionally, banking on future success as a movie star is just plain stupid. At best, he'll get a few roles as "scary black dude #3" in straight-to-DVD movies.

    One other thing, how is this going to affect TUF 10? The season hasn't even had it's second episode aired yet, and already there's major stuff changing about the end of the show. All of the trash-talking between Rashad and Rampage is going to be a total annoyance to me, knowing they might never actually fight. I was already rooting for Rashad's team, now I may skip the season entirely.

    Let's hope Rampage is just being fickle rather than monumentally stupid.

    I'm pretty much done with Rampage. He's a good fighter in his way, but he's devolved into a one-trick pony rather than improving and growing as a fighter, and we've all seen that he hasn't got a chance making money as a coach in the future. Maybe he's right, and his best bet is to go the blacksploitation type-cast route.

    Huh, if most of that's true I feel for the guy. Heck, I could be more of a fan of his as B.A. than Q.J..

    Of course, my love for MMA is about equal to my love for The A-Team, so I'm kind of biased.

    He isn't the fighter he used to be anyway, you can't really fault him for playing it safe and trying to feed his family the best way possible.

    I'm glad he's taking his own path, but I can't help but feel like he's making a bad decision, especially considering the lack of success other martial artists have had in the acting world. Honestly, acting is hard, much harder than people give it credit for. Rampage may do well with it, being the charismatic-ish character that he is, but I think any success will be extremely short-lived.

    Dear Rampage the UFC resurrected your sorry ass twice. Once from your dead career and the second time you went nuts in your Rampage mobile and caused some lady to miscarry her baby

    Go **** yourself.

    P.S. The A-Team movie will most likely suck ass

    I hope he does well in acting. I've known for years that he's always wanted to play BA and he deserves kudos for not letting anything stand in his way.

    He should be more discerning about the roles he gets. It's at this point that we have to look at his performance in 'Midnight Meat Train', which is surprisingly not the title of a gay porn flick.
