He really seems to be completely oblivious to how badly he is screwing his employers over by doing this. I'm tired of listening to him complain about how tough he has it, I have always really liked Rampage but he seems to have absolutely no understanding that he's the one who screwed the UFC and Spike TV really badly and that Dana had every right to be incredibly pissed off at him.
If I were Dana I would've done a hell of a lot more than just complain in an interview, I would have brought any and all litigation I possibly could against him to make a very serious point that people don't walk away from their obligations any time someone wants to put them in a bad movie.
Give everyone a break and stop crying about your employers being angry that you screwed them for your own personal benefit. You made the UFC more money than they made you? Guess how this works. The UFC provided you the outlet that you would never have had by dumping millions of their own dollars into creating a successful company that would run equally well if you had never been signed, and now they are claiming their well-earned money.
Without the UFC making the sport what it is and offering fighters the platform to showcase their skills and to make a legitimate living you would have absolutely nothing. The UFC doesn't need you Rampage, you haven't done anything for them that dozens of other fighters couldn't do in your place. Who bailed your ass out of jail and defended you when you drove your ridiculous monster truck with a massive picture of your face on it into a bunch of **** and tried to escape from the police? Who gave you the exposure and the platform to become the star that you are now? Who made you famous enough for anyone to want to put you in a movie in the first place?
I'm sick of listening to him at this point and I'm losing massive amounts of respect for him every time he releases a new statement. Please stop crying, your life is amazing and you would have none of it without the UFC. Would the UFC be any less well off if they had never signed Rampage? They would be in exactly the same position. He's a drop in the ocean, nothing more, if he really believes he's done more for the UFC than they have for him he's completely delusional and has absolutely no concept of economics whatsoever.
Whatever he does, I want him to just stop complaining. Do your movie, fight, whatever, just stop crying. You have a life most people could only dream of, stop crying about how tough it is, no one cares at all.
