Rampage Jackson Is the Great Communicator

Rampage Jackson is living proof that famous people get to do things you don't. Just six and half months after leading police on a bizarre chase through Los Angeles, Jackson is not only back fighting in the UFC, he's headed toward a title shot against Rashad Evans after a nasty victory by decision at UFC 96 this weekend. Rumors of his mental breakdown after his loss to Forrest Griffin were therefore inaccurate; it's just that Jackson needed to blow off some steam by taking a huge truck with his name on the side and running into a few cars in traffic, that's all. (Actually, that sounds really fun. I'd do it if I could, and so would you, provided you weren't going to hurt anyone you didn't like.) ↵

↵Rampage's return to title shot status is welcome, because no one in UFC takes a mike like Rampage, who shows genuine Memphisian Three 6 Mafia mike skills against Rashad Evans in the post-fight jaw-jab session. Warning: This clip contains naughty language by Evans, and excessively awesome machismo by Rampage. You may be compelled to put a co-worker in an arm bar and then address the office while holding a stapler as a mike after watching this: ↵

↵"All I gotta say: There's gonna be some more black on black crime," may be one of the least decisive taunts in UFC history, since both Evans and Jackson are African-American, and could apply no matter what happens in this fight. Whatever, a good mike man doesn't worry about the logic. Now give that stapler back to your co-worker, and tell her she fought a good fight. ↵
