Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Mike Goldberg, Strikeforce: The Morning News Roundup – 1.16.13

There was a time when news involving Quinton “Rampage” Jackson centered around him being one of the baddest dudes on the planet. Nowadays, though, the news invariably involves him being unhappy – with his pay, with his bosses, with whatever – which unfortunately makes him seem like one of the saddest dudes on the planet. Oh well. I guess that happens with old age…

 

  • As per the good folks over at BJPenn.com, according to Rampage, the UFC brass won’t let him wear Reebok – his sponsor – in the Octagon. As you know, being able to showcase your sponsor in the cage is pretty much the whole raison d’etre behind having a sponsor, so of course that restriction could present a problem.  To make matters worse, Bellator honcho Bjorn Rebney told MMAFighting that should Rampage hit the free market, he might not be that interested in signing the aging PRIDE and UFC superstar.
  • Longtime UFC play-by-play man Mike Goldberg will be making his return to the figurative broadcast booth at UFC on FOX 6 on January 26. Goldberg was out with an upper respiratory infection, and filling in for him was “B” team announcer Jon Anik.
  • Here are some highlights from the UFC on FOX 6 conference call yesterday. FiveOuncesofPain ace scribe Brendhan Conlan sits on these conference calls so you don’t have to, so show him some love.
  • Weep with nostalgia at this Strikeforce video retrospective.

    I’m digging the morning roundup articles. I like the quick hitter format for stuff that might otherwise fly under the radar. Also nice to see another talented writer alongside Conlan. I hope it sticks.

    And seeing Goldie’s smiling mug in that pic accompanying the article should be a nice jump start to anybody’s day. If that doesn’t get you fired up, you might need to borrow some of Goldie’s meds.

    When we comment, pretty much every time, it sends us to a server response not available, connection error, then if you hit refresh it says duplicate message noticed.
