Rampage Jackson: Chael Sonnen Is Ruining The Sport, Glover Teixeira Can Save It | UFC NEWS


“His mouth gets his him fights. What’s his name? How do you say his name? ‘Chael?’ His mouth gets his ass in trouble. The dude is exciting for like two minutes, but then you just wanna turn down the volume, like, ‘What the hell you talkin’ about?’ He sounds like he practices his stuff in the mirror, and then he goes out and says it. He’s a great wrestler. That’s all I’m gonna say, ‘cuz everything else sucks. He can’t punch hard. Look what he did to Anderson Silva. He did a great job holding him down, making a boring fighter out of a decorated champion, for five rounds. After the fight, I see that Anderson Silva didn’t have a mark on him. Not a mark.”

“I talk trash, but I talk trash about people I’m actually gonna fight — people in my weight class. This guy, he talks trash about ring girls. He talks trash about the President. Now, that’s a little bit too much. He’s very disrespectful. I don’t like the guy. For real. The stuff he says about me. I like to joke around as much as anybody, but, for real, if I see Chael Sonnen, and he says anything to my face, I don’t know if I’m gonna smack him or not. I don’t know. I don’t like the guy.”

“Losing to a guy like Ryan Bader has lit a fire under my ass. I’m getting back in the gym and working on my new skills. My main focus is to destroy Glover Teixeira. It’s the last fight on my contract, and I’m gonna destroy Glover, then I’m gonna put my deuces up. There’s no love lost with the UFC. They’re a great company. They’re doing great things for the sport, but I just don’t think they’re doing great things for me.”

“Glover’s a tough guy. I like his fighting style. He’s a jiu jitsu guy, but he throws it. I respect fighters like him. I think the UFC and MMA needs more fighters like him. Fighters like Chael Sonnen are just ruining the sport, taking people down and just humping on them. Fighters like Glover can save MMA. I don’t understand why these guys are coming up with these elaborate game plans to win by decision. It’s like boxing.”

  1. Thom says:

    Sonnen vs Rampage needs to happen. It would be Sonnen vs Stann part 2.

    • Thom says:

      not really, he’d KO that WWE wannabe.

      • Thom says:

        Your kind said the same about Stann. Jackson is weak against wrestlers. Even without a finish, Jackson would be on his back for three rounds and lose a UD.

    • BF says:

      I think Rampage would beat Chael. The issue is Rampage is gone, it’s just Quinton Jackson now.

      Nobody “trades” with Jackson. Jackson has huge power but no speed. He hasn’t had an impressive performance since 2007 because he can’t put his hands on people anymore. Yet, he still has hype and people still talk about his KO power, BECAUSE HE RUNS HIS MOUTH ABOUT IT.

      If you want to compare bullshit artists… Rampage has been cashing in on his past by running his mouth for 3 years now. Even his victories were poor performances. However, he runs his mouth and hypes the fight up. I bought into his bullshit for the Jones fight and the Evans fight. I was a HUGE Rampage fan, after the terrible let downs he’s produced for his fans, why oh why would you help hype this guy up at all?

      Also, Bisping would beat half of the top 10 at 205. He’s much better than people give him credit for.

      Also again, MMAth doesn’t work, but you can judge off someone’s performance how they MAY handle a different fight….
      Chael dominated a striker in Stann, and 2012 Jackson < 2012 Stann in striking. Inside hooks do not a successful striker make. He beat (very close) a king of all trades in Bisping. Also, Bisping doesn't gas, ever. How's Pages record on gassing the past 3 years? If you still want to buy into the whole, "all page has to do is land one punch," theory, be my guest, I'd just like to know how he'd plan to land one on Chael.

      Logic is you friend. Being a fan is great, but these fighters are not your children, no need to defend them unfailingly

  2. Jasplanet says:

    I agree to everything he said and im sure he worked on his TD for this one, plus the TRT is going to help him be stronger in training. TRT is allowed if regulated, its the athetic comissions that needs to change their rules for the legitemacy of mma

  3. TheTude says:

    The truth is that rampage vs sonnen and glover vs JBJ makes more sense than the fights that are slated right now, give Rampage a chance to go out on a high note by destroying Sonnen and let JBJ fight a guy who is on a 16 fight win streak by facing glover

    • T.DADDY says:

      Sonnen wud get crybaby Rampage down and rape him for 3rds… Come on now you lost to Bader… Lmao! Rampage hasn’t looked good since he ko’d Wandy.. and that isn’t sayin much.. Glover is gonna beat ur ass Bumpage

  4. DMAC says:

    Glover will be going for the TD right off the bat. He can save that “let’s bang” bullshit for the birds. Dude got hit once and damn near feel out. He’s not fast enough to not get hit by Rampage so with that said night night noogah!!

  5. BF says:

    When is the last time Page earned a KO vs a respectable opponent? 2008 vs Wandy is debable on the “respectable” aspect. 2007 vs Liddell?

    It’s 2012 now, Page is too slow and one dimensional to compete with the 205lbs in the top 10 now. Also, for him to dis someone else based upon using their mouth… I bought into Jackson’s nonsense before the Evans and Jones fights, I won’t again.

    Hate on Chael, that’s fine, but to say Page would KO a guy who’s been finished by strikes once (tko from Anderson) is a leap of logic. Rampage is gone, we just have Quinton Jackson now.

    Also, you don’t have to be fast to not get hit by Jackson, all you have to do is keep your head out of his inside hook range.

    • T.DADDY says:

      +100000000000000000000000

    • DMAC says:

      Ha glover been taking out Facebook fighters while Rampage been fighting world class talent for years. You win some you lose some but at least your fighting top tier and not of bunch of cans trying to pad your record. And tell me when’s the last time Glover fought anyone even sniffing the top 10..

  6. Dick Diaz says:

    i don’t know how i feel about his statement on chael sonnen ruining the sport; i mean he doesn’t deserve the title shot but at the same time he’s totally hitting it on the head with the promotion and theatrics of the fight game.

  7. Brah what says:

    wow alot of people still hugin sonnen nuts…like i said before its not the fighters like sonnen thats ruining mma its the fans that support them….

  8. chris says:

    why do we keep saying this is ruining the sport, if anything it bringing in more fans that want to watch the story develop between fighters. no one wants to see to guys drinking beer and then fighting. we want a story behind the fight, americans we want a villain, a hero and an outcome. I believe fights like these bring the casual fans out to events and spend more money which in turn helps fighters get paid more. people can pay all day to see you beat up the world but at one point the world is gonna want to pay to see you get beat.

  9. Ron Jeremy says:

    This clown hasn’t been cut or retired yet? Soon he will be slamming objects such as chairs in furniture commercials. Carry on

  10. Adam says:

    Chael Sonnen is ruining the sport? Rampage, I think you should go back to making videos on how to rape a woman. You say you talk trash about people your going to fight, but from what I can tell, there isn’t a chance in hell you will be fighting ANYONE after you lose to Glover, and yet I still hear you talk shit about Chael Sonnen. Fuck you.

  11. Kenshiro says:

    Rampage is gonna destroy Glover… I dont give Glover a chance in hell to beat Rampage. Rampage can take a punch, Glover can’t.. so if they trade… NITE NITE… !!

  12. Rich says:

    The new age fans are sad…… I respect rampage 1000times more then sonnen… Is this what mma fans have become? Disrespecting a guy like rampage who fought like a warrior for years and supporting a loud mouth loser like sonnen?!? What made rampage big? That’s right, power slams and howling and brawling. What made sonnen big? Talking crap about a.silva and cheating and still losing… And for all you saying rampage is wasted up? Lets see sonnen do better against Jon then rampage did .. Boone brought the fight to j

    Ps, 16.7 to 1 ratio should never be admired…

  14. maurice says:

    wow. chael beat rampage? fuck no. dumbass chael fans act like chael is sum raw ass fighter. chael could barely get bisping and anderson down, but yet he’ll take RAMPAGE JACKSON down and “rape him?” a gassed rampage got outwrestled the last 2 rounds of the bader fight. but that same page stuffed more takedowns from the best wrestlers in mma for years. u sonnen fans put chael on this pedastool for reasons ill neva understand. shit is so sickening
