5 Dumbest Fighters in UFC history.
#4 Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson
Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson is one of the best Light Heavyweight fighters to have ever competed inside the Octagon. He is also one of the best at making excuses, after a loss inside the Octagon or outside it.
In 2008, Jackson was involved in an epic car chase from Newport Beach California to Costa Mesa. This incident involved him ramming his monster truck into a few other vehicles, and with a gigantic photo of himself plastered all over the truck, he became a laughing stock in the MMA community for his carelessness.
Back in 2008 he blamed this incident on his lack of sleep and food. However, in 2014 he changed his story once again and claimed that his car-chase was in fact a heroic attempt on his part to save his suicidal friend.
A friend that he vaguely refers to as ‘Brian’ who was later revealed to be a stable guy with a normal life.
‘Heroic car-chase to save a suicidal friend who is later revealed to be a completely normal and happy person’- now where have we heard such an absurd story before? (Hint- Cue Seinfeld Season 4, Episode 4, The Ticket). Newman claims in court that he drove like a maniac to save his suicidal friend Kramer. Yes, sounds about right.
Besides, who can ever forget Rampage’s claims against ‘The Japanese room service’, after his PRIDE FC loss to Kazushi Sakuraba in 2001. Yes, he actually claimed that the Japanese hotel patrons drugged him before his fight against Sakuraba, although Rampage had no evidence of the said ‘drugging’ and appeared to be his normal self in the ring.
Well, that’s Rampage for you.
