You can add Randy Couture to the list of fighters that have gotten on Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s bad side. “Rampage” took to Twitter last night to vent his frustrations about Couture’s prediction that he would lose to Matt Hamill at UFC 130.
Couture makes predictions for major fights in videos for Affliction Clothing, which produce his Xtreme Couture brand of clothing. “Rampage” endorsed Xtreme Couture clothing for a number of years, and was last seen sporting the brand before his bout with Rashad Evans at UFC 114 in May of last year.
Couture was the first to Tweet about the falling out:
“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 Dec. In that fight and rampage took it personal . They’re objective and I’m wrong alo”
“Rampage” responded with some choice words for the hall of famer:
“@Randy_Couture f*** u dude,u a fake a** has been,I was a real friend and kept my mouth shut when I didn’t know if u would win or lose”
“Rampage” was able to prove Couture wrong and parlayed his decision win over Hamill at UFC 130 into a title shot against current champion Jon “Bones” Jones.
Jones engaged in a war of words with Rashad Evans earlier this year on the popular social-networking site as well, proving that the Octagon is sometimes not big enough to contain the competitive side of its fighters.
Time will tell if this exchange between Jackson and Couture is simply a minor misunderstanding or the beginning of a nasty public feud.
