Quinton "Rampage" Jackson Humps Reporter During Interview

Something Tells Me That This Would Never Have Happened If MMA Was A "Mainstream" Sport

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson got a little... ummm... excited in a recent interview and... well... he started humping the reporter. She didn't seem to mind, but I don't think there's any question that it was a bit over the top, and perhaps it's a good thing that MMA (for now) isn't on the same level as some other sports.

Fortunately (I guess), the reporter didn't seem to mind at all, and welcomed it, if anything. It all started when she mentioned that she wanted to make a romantic comedy starring her and Rampage. She probably didn't realize he wanted to start filming right away, though.

This isn't the first time he's done this, either. When he was fighting in Japan with Pride, he did something similar to a Japanese reporter.

Rampage is a hilarious dude, and this stuff is just part of what makes him a likable fighter, but somewhere along the line, I'm a bit concerned that this is going to make it difficult for MMA to be taken seriously. It's already seen as a barbaric sport by many people, and it just seems like things like this are only going to reinforce that perception. All we can hope for is that people don't get the wrong idea, and that Rampage and other fighters know when it's "acceptable", and when they're going too far. Try this on Erin Andrews, and I think there's a lawsuit pretty quickly.

He's a horny mutt, ain't he?

MMA can use a few lighthearted moments to dispel that barbaric, testosterone-fueled rage crap.  As long as he stays out of real trouble...

This is going to be pretty stunning evidence if this guy ever goes on trial for assault.

I can't believe them girls are actually letting him do this! He better be careful, or he'll get sued by another girl.

I agree i don't think he's all quite right upstairs.  I give him a couple more years and he's doing some jail time.

They aren't gonna say a whole lot. Did you see the size of this guy's arms??

The dude has always seemed like he's not quite all there. Good thing he can fight, otherwise he would be in jail or a padded room.
