Rampage Formally Charged for Rampage

Former UFC champ Quinton "Rampage" Jackson was formally charged by the Orange County Dristrict Attorney for his July 15th car chase yesterday. In the July 15th incident, Jackson allegedly drove on a sidewalk in Costa Mesa, fled from police, and damaged other motor vehicles. The charges are as follows: one felony count of "sodomy by car", one felony count of "unlawful use of Xyience", two misdemeanor counts of "failing to make TUF 7 interesting", and one misdemeanor count of "losing to Forrest Griffin". If convicted, Jackson could face up to three years on the UFC's undercard.

Wanted: Someone Stupid

Are you stupid, willing to fight for free, and ready to get toyed with and tapped out like a fool? Tuff-N-Uff, a Las Vegas-based amateur MMA promotion, is on the hunt for a light-heavyweight opponent for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Robert Drysdale (yes, the same Robert Drysdale who won the Abu Dhabi World Championships absolute division last year and who teaches grappling at Xtreme Couture). The event is slated for October 17th. For those unwilling to face one of the best submission specialists in the world, there are other options. Former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson is also looking to make his amateur MMA debut at the event, as are Olympic Judo gold medalist Kosei Inoue and Olympic Greco-Roman wrestling gold medalist Aslanbek Khushtov. Again, anyone willing to face these world-class athletes in an unpaid amateur MMA bout should contact Tuff-N-Uff immediately.
