RAMPAGE JACKSON AT YESTERDAY’S UFC 87 PRESS CONFERENCE WITH UFC PRESIDENT DANA WHITE

Steve Cofield of Yahoo! Sports has an interesting item on his blog today. The Ultimate Fighting Championship actually brought troubled fighter Rampage Jackson to their UFC 87 press conference.

That’s unbelievable considering Jackson recently spent time in a psychiatric ward following his hit and run incident in California last month. Jackson may also face second degree murder charges following the miscarriage of a woman who was in one of the cars struck by Jackson.

ROGER HUERTA

Roger Huerta, who is one of the headliners on next week’s UFC 87 card, has blasted the Ultimate Fighting Championship for paying their fighters so little. He is also apparently unhappy with the way the organization treats him and his current contract.

In an interview with Fight! Magazine, Huerta complained about a recent UFC press tour to Miami, Houston, Los Angeles and London where he was paid only a $50-a-day per diem. Huerta also brought up the fact that his training teammate Keith Jardine received only $10,000 to fight in the main event on a UFC card.

According to Huerta,

 

 

“The truth is, I don’t really care I fight in the UFC or somewhere else.”

Huerta was the UFC coverboy for their Sports Illustrated feature last year.

The Affliction card was held before a sold out crowd in Anaheim. Fedor destroyed former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia with a rear naked choke 36 seconds into the first round of the main event. Heavyweight Andrei Arlovski also looked good with a third round knockout. Other winners included Josh Barnett, Nogueira, Matt Lindland, Paul Buentello, Vitor Belfort, Babalu, and Mike Pyle.

UFC’s event was held at The Palms in Las Vegas. Anderson Silva, the UFC’s middleweight champion, moved up to the 205 pound weight class and destroyed James Irvin with a first round knockout. Other fights on the card included  victories by Kevin Burns and Brandon Vera . Hermes Franca and Jake O’Brien were surprise losers on the UFC card.

UFC 87 will take place in Minneapolis August 6th. It features welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre. Minnesota native and former wrestling star Brock Lesnar is also on the card. Kenny Florian and Roger Huerta will batlle at 155 pounds as well.
