(cagepotato.com)
In their effort to smash the competition, UFC brushes aside business ethics and made THIS press release: "SPIKE TV’S RE-BROADCAST OF UFC 84 DRAWS MORE YOUNG MEN THAN A LIVE PRO ELITEXC CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT ON CBS Need proof the UFC is the preeminent mixed martial arts brand in the world?

Ibarra and Rampage Part ways
(cagepotato.com)

With defeat as the impetus, Jackson responded to rough terrain by relieving the trainer of his duties, though “bottom line, somehow, someway it all involves money,” said the fighter’s friend.
Jackson is now out of psychiatric observation and is attending outpatient treatment on a daily basis, but he didn’t seem completely cured after his initial release.

“He would still make comments that were slightly weird,” said Jackson’s longtime associate. “You could tell that he wasn’t all the way there, but each day you could tell he was better…He knows what he went through,” said the source. “He knew he had an emotional breakdown that led to a mental breakdown.”

Rampage on the road to recovery, possible Fall fight with Wandy?
(sportsillustrated.cnn.com)
Upon Jackson's release, the plan was to make the switch from a Costa Mesa jail cell to a psychiatric hospital bed. He refused help, and no one was going to convince him otherwise. The only place he was headed was home. Rampage demanded silence when he wasn't offering words of faith. He spoke of a "wolf in sheep's clothing" and people aligned with the devil. "Mentally he wasn't there," said the source. "It was almost as if he was possessed. He heard voices. He thought he was a God." Talk amongst people in the house turned to the need for medical help. At first, they tried convincing Rampage to head for the hospital. That failed, tempers flared and police, thankfully, intervened. Several hours later, the fighter was under psychiatric hold. "He went very easy" with police, said the source. Three days later, rested and nourished, Rampage was reunited with friends.
