Light heavyweight number one contender Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has started a twitter beef with MMA legend Randy Couture after “The Natural” picked Matt Hammill to beat Rampage in their UFC 130 fight.
While previewing the card for Affliction, “The Natural” predicted that Hammill would get the upset and score a win via decision. This did not go down well with the man from Memphis…
Rampage took his displeasure to the web and has let the world know in no uncertain terms what he felt about being overlooked by Couture.
“Yo boy Randy Couture is the has been, check his last fight bitch”
Couture responded in a characteristically diplomatic manner.
“It sucks that rampage would take an objective pick on a fight personally,” wrote Couture. “He’s a great guy and a friend . All the best to him! …Yes the hamill pick . I thought hamill would eek out a Decision In that fight and rampage took it personal . They’re objective and I’m wrong [a lot]”
Despite being a well-meaning and respectful explanation of his choice, Couture’s tweet only seemed to make Jackson angrier.
“F*ck Randy Couture I used 2 rep his line, and he always picked my opponents over me. At first it was cool till hamill #has been…”
“Randy Couture f*ck 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”
