Really? UFC Color Commentator Joe Rogan Calls MMA Writer “C*nty”

It all began again when Quinton “Rampage” Jackson practically “motorboated” interviewer Karyn Bryant on camera. Yahoo! Sports MMA writer Maggie Hendricks took umbrage with Jackson’s behavior based on a history of occurrences, which was chronicled on this site.

This is what Hendricks said:

He thinks it’s funny to assault the people who cover his fights… who give him a stage to show off the “Rampage” persona.

Let’s stop doing that. Take away his stage. Don’t ask him questions in press conferences, don’t cover his every move, don’t give him another chance to assault reporters. He may think his act is funny and cute, but there is one way to ensure that no one else finds it funny or cute. Don’t cover it.

UFC color commentator Joe Rogan took umbrage to her umbrage. He wrote on a message board (he must really feel passionate about this):

He’s not a fucking dentist, he’s a cage fighter, and he’s one with a very unique personality. I don’t think he should be given a free pass for some of the questionable things he does, but I do think that this woman in question is all kinds of cunty.

Don’t hold back…but at the end of the day, Jackson’s behavior isn’t OK. The only positive: he’s not Mike Tyson.

    He should be fired-the UFC is on a tear and overinflated egos like Rogans are a no no.Hes past his sell by date after this for sure-his main problem is that hes a know-it-all who has to be “right” by shouting the loudest.Dinosaurs like him have no place as they alienate fans in the long term.Interesting to see what percentage of the ufc fanbase are female and how many fans they could potentially lose

    I used to like him, but that was poor form right there.

    NC, mm and trgeorge are a bunch a cunts

    as much as i hate to agree with the sags she is right, rampage is a bully he does it with ariel helwani all the time as with a number of other MMA personalities and broadcasters, he thinks it makes him look boss that he can beat up reporters, as an MMA fighter at the caliber he is at i would hope he can take a reporter he doesn’t need to remind people of why he is in MMA

    To classify what rampage did as “assault” is ridiculous.
