Rampage Jackson arrested for felony hit and run


Recommended Posts

What a moron. This further proves my theory that UFC is the new WWE.... Just a bunch of redneck rejects.

you're theory makes you look like a redneck reject.

The police have commented saying that they don't believe drugs or alcohol was involved, however he was mentally unstable and had been battling depression and injuries. <snipped>

boxing is real.. but boring. It had it's day, but that day is long gone... why would someone watch boxing when you can watch a mix of everything.

Thanks. I just wish people would watch a real fighting sport.... aka boxing.

Then you should love Chuck Liddel.

But seriously for you not to condsider it a real sport is pretty much confusing.

It has the elements of boxing + more. For you not to call it a sport is; calling boxing not a sport also.

At least for once with these "high profile" athlete's we can take solace in the fact that drugs and alcohol were not involved.

Remember Jesse Taylor in Ultimate Fighter Season 7?

Dudes, stop bringing boxing into MMA threads. They are two entirely different sports and comparing them only creates a bitter conflict that means absolutely nothing. They are both here to stay.

Uh oh, its not looking good for Jackson:

Baby dies after crash

A Huntington Beach woman who was more than 16 weeks pregnant and who police said was injured in a hit-and-run crash with mixed martial artist Quinton ?Rampage? Jackson on the 55 Freeway two weeks ago has had a miscarriage, her fiance said Friday.

Holli Griggs, 38, was driving her 2007 Cadillac Escalade in the left lane on the southbound 55 Freeway just south of Bay Street on July 15 when Jackson?s gray-and-green pick-up truck sideswiped her as he drove along the median lane at about 45 mph, California Highway Patrol officials said.

Prosecutors have yet to file charges against Jackson, a former light heavyweight champion for the Ultimate Fighting Championship who remains free on $25,000 bail. Prosecutors would not comment on any potential charges due to Griggs? miscarriage.

?Our office will make sure we take as much time as necessary to make a proper filing decision and including all evidence and medical information to make sure any charges that are filed are fair and accurate,? Dist. Atty. spokeswoman Farrah Emami said.

Efforts to reach Jackson and his representatives have been unsuccessful since he was arrested.

Griggs was unavailable for comment Friday. Her fiance, Bill Krebs, said doctors were immediately concerned when they noticed a significant loss of fluid in Griggs? womb after the accident. Days before the crash, the couple had visited the doctor for an ultrasound, and Griggs was told she ?had enough fluid for three babies,? Krebs said. She was pregnant with a boy.

Griggs was sent to Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian after the accident, CHP officials said. Krebs said he and Griggs were then sent to pregnancy specialists at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Anaheim, where doctors noticed the problem.

The couple have retained an attorney but have yet to take legal action against Jackson.

?No amount of money will bring back my son,? Krebs said outside his home Thursday.

Jackson was arrested July 15 after Costa Mesa police say they chased him from 18th Street and Newport Boulevard, where he was weaving through traffic with a flat tire while talking on the phone all the way to 18th Street on Balboa Boulevard in Newport Beach.

Jackson ran several red lights, drove on concrete islands narrowly missing pedestrians, headed into oncoming traffic and hit another car, police said. Officers did not test Jackson for drugs or alcohol because he did not appear to be under the influence, Sgt. Bryan Glass said. He was released that night on bail.

The next day, Jackson was taken from his Irvine home and hospitalized for observation after police deemed he was a danger to himself and others. Jackson was upset by Forrest Griffin in a light heavyweight title bout in Las Vegas July 5.

Damn, I couldn't imagine that happening to me. My wife was in a wreck when she was about 7 months with our first son and went in to some false labor. They were able to get her stabilized and everything worked out ok. This is getting bad for Rampage it seems...

I gotta say that sounds damn fishy in many ways. #1, he sideswiped her, and I cannot for the life of me find any kind of reasoning for it causing a miscarriage, considering she would have somehow needed to take some kind of blow that affected her uterus. #2, of my 3 kids, never once have I ever heard a doctor mention anything about the fluid level, unless there was a problem. I can't help but think that this is someone trying to take advantage of his status.

Yeah, it's not really that hard to believe.

With all the people suing each other these days, you never know I guess.. :unsure:
