The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Rampage goes on a rampage

    http://photos.tmz.com/galleries/rampage_arrested#22687

    UFC light heavyweight sensation Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (Pictures) was arrested Tuesday by Costa Mesa police officers following a high-speed pursuit through the Californian suburbs from Costa Mesa to Newport Beach. Jackson was arrested on Felony Evading, Reckless Driving and Hit-and-Run charges and was being processed Tuesday afternoon at the Costa Mesa Jail with bail set at $25,000.

    Jackson was observed weaving his gray and green Ford pick-up truck in and out of traffic on a flat front tire while talking on his cell phone, according to a release from the Costa Mesa police department. An officer on motorcycle attempted to pull Jackson over but the fighter continued driving south on 17th St and over a center divider at Cabrillo Ave. in what became a chase with local authorities around 1:30 p.m.

    Authorities said Jackson drove through red lights and onto the sidewalk on multiple occasions, "causing pedestrians to flee in terror." Jackson collided with a vehicle at the 17th St. intersection and continued driving on an exposed tire rim. The fighter was later linked and charged for two other collisions on the southbound 55 freeway prior to the pursuit.

    Sherdog.com has learned that Jackson was en route to training partner's residence and gave himself up to authorities outside his final destination at 18th St. and Newport Blvd.

    "It was reported to me by the arresting officers that Jackson was cooperative and respectful [at the time of arrest], but upset," said Costa Mesa watch commander Lt. Paul Dondero.

    A maestro with the sound byte, former Pride Fighting Championship star Jackson (27-8) has been one of the UFC's richer acquisitions in recent years. The extroverted 30-year-old smashed promotion favorite Chuck Liddell (Pictures) at UFC 71 to garner the light heavyweight title in May 2007. Jackson defended the crown once before a dropping a hotly contested unanimous decision to Forrest Griffin (Pictures) at UFC 86 "Jackson vs. Griffin" in Las Vegas on July 5. Jackson and Griffin had previously traded verbal barbs as rival coaches on Spike TV's "The Ultimate Fighter 7" before meeting in the Octagon.

    Photos released by TMZ.com show the former champion face down on the street outside the house during his arrest. It appears Jackson was directed to exit his truck at gunpoint.

    Multiple attempts to reach Jackson's manager, Juanito Ibarra, were unsuccessful.
    Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.

    Well, since they kicked out guys on the Ultimate Fighter for misconduct I wonder if they'll ban him from the UFC for this, despite the fact that he is a pro.

    rampage is a tough guy, but something tells me he cannot stop bullets.

    good question. It'll be interesting to see what Dana does. I suspect though losing Rampage would lose too much money when he could fight Forrest again

    I think he will get past this, and then be back. Dana likes him too much, I think he pulls for these guys too much not to hold onto them.
    The guy that got kicked out the finale (jesse?) is already back on the card.

    It's funny that Dana himself flew out there to bail him out.

    Well I used to be a Rampage fan.

    Now I'm glad Griffin got the nod. Better Ambassador for the sport anyway.

    I partied with Rampage in vegas several months back. I have some friend in Newport who are UFs and know him really well. We all got trashed, hung out with models, they kept ordering bottels of champagne and spraying it on chicks and the crowd, etc. It was like a rap video.

    He's actually a really level headed cool dude for all the attention he gets and the fame. You do get the impression from him that he could snap under the wrong circumstances though.

    Wonder what the deal was.

    You weren't much of a fan if you don't even know what happened and will drop him like that.

    This might come as a surprise to you but people make mistakes in life its not like he raped/murdered someone. He did put people's lives in danger so I guess thats pretty bad but lets at least get the whole story before we start chastising the guy. The media isn't always the end all be all of facts.

    He got arrested again today after being released for being " a danger to himself and others" outside of his hotel.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    He didn't get arressted technically he was detained and they hopitalized him for mental evaluation. I don't know whats going on with him but I hope he gets well.

    Also about my other post turns out he side swiped a pregnant women who had to be hospitalized. Now this just might be standard procedure type stuff but still pretty serious if you ask me.

    I guess according to your definition I'm not much of a fan.

    The first thing I did was I checked multiple sources, they all confirm he did go on a driving rampage, and he did refuse to listen to the police.

    There might be some reasonable explanation for his actions, but for some reason I'm going to put it at around 10%.

    The guy clearly did endanger a lot of people and himself, for most likely a stupid reason.

    If he has mental problems, I feel bad for him, but he clearly shouldn't be fighter, so I still can't be a fan of his.
