It turns out that Randy Couture isn’t loved by everyone. Right now, Rampage has been talking about not taking too kindly to Couture constantly picking against him in numberous fights through his career, including recently picking Matt Hamill to defeat him at UFC 130 in May.
Rampage, who once wore Xtreme Couture, the apparel line that promotes Randy Couture’s gym in Las Vegas, was none too happy with what he perceived as several personal slights.
Randy had a classy response, as would be expected, but even after this, one has to be sure that Rampage won’t be letting this one go anytime soon.
“It sucks that rampage would take an objective pick on a fight personally . He’s a great guy and a friend . All the best to him ! … Yes the hamill pick . I thought hamill would eek out a (decision) In that fight and rampage took it personal . They’re objective and I’m wrong a (lot).” – Randy Couture
“Rampage’s” reaction, though, was anything but nice … and highly confrontational.
At first Jackson was general in putting out his message and airing his problem with Couture:
“Fuck @Randy_Couture I used 2 rep his line, and he always picked my opponents over me, at 1st it was cool till Hamill #has been.”
Then he quickly decided to address Couture directly:
“@Randy_Couture fuck u dude, u a fake ass has been, I was a real friend and kept my mouth shut when I didn’t know if you would win or lose.”
Come at me, bro.
Jackson, of course, used to represent Xtreme Couture, Randy’s clothing line that promotes his gym in Las Vegas, wearing it as his walkout shirt on numerous occasions.
Not anymore … probably ever.
Is Jackson being a little petty here getting upset at Couture picking against him? Or is his anger justifiable? Sound off, Maniacs.
