DALLAS – UFC light heavyweight superstar Quinton "Rampage" Jackson's decision to forego a December bout with Rashad Evans has resulted in a series of headaches for UFC brass.

Rescheduling main events and shuffling fight locations may seem troubling enough, but today White admitted he was forced to scrap plans for a potential third event in November based on Jackson's decision to take a role as B.A. Baracus in a feature film version of "The A-Team."

"Thanks to [expletive] B.A. Baracus, I couldn't [expletive] pull it off," White said. "B.A. [expletive] me. The collateral damage that was done by him doing this thing was unbelievable."

Well, I guess this settles the whole "let the fighter's do what they want" arguement. Look at this mess. Now look at how Roger left.

Man I like Rampage as a fighter but this is making me loss a lot of respect for him. You gave your word and now your not honoring it. Not only is he letting a lot of people down including his fight fans but he is also costing a lot of people money.

I just posted something similar in another thread but I have absolutely no respect for the guys walking away from their prior obligations to be in movies. If you aren't holding a belt, or under contract, do whatever you want, it's your own career. If you signed a contract saying that you were going to be a fighter for X amount of time, you need to do your job, simple as that.

I agree completely with Dana, I would be absolutely furious. I would really try to do whatever I could to legally prevent it from happening to let people know that it is completely unacceptable to do things like this. I'm sure their contracts are going to containing a new clause pretty soon about abandoning your obligations to act in movies.
