MMA News: Rampage! Redux
TMZ is reporting that Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson was picked up by police a second time this week.
Yesterday afternoon he was apparently hanging out with some friends, and his friends flagged down a cop car and said that Rampage was acting odd. The police officers at the scene deemed him a danger to self and/or others, so he was taken to a hospital for observation.
It's also being reported that he was very cooperative with police.
After the July 5th title fight loss Rampage said in his post fight interview that he would never have 9 months between fights again.
The top 4 draws in the UFC light heavyweight division are champion Forest Griffin, Chuck Liddell, Wanderlai Silva, and Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson. Liddell is fighting Rashad Evans in September, and if Chuck wins that fight he would be the obvious choice for the next title match.
If Chuck loses then you could go to an immediate rematch between Griffin and Rampage.
That last idea has probably been tossed out the window this week.
Something is odd in Irvine, CA.
