The Culinary Union I am talking about is an adversary the UFC has gone up with many times before. It is the group that is currently ensuring that the UFC stays out of New York.
This may not come as a shock, as Jackson is quite controversial. However, you may be thinking, “What did Jackson do this time?”
No, he didn’t hump any more female reporters. And no, he didn’t motorboat Karen Bryant and tell her that “Jamaican me horny,” again.
Don’t worry, “Rampage” simply made a video about how to rape a woman in a parking garage last year, no big deal.
Sarcasm aside, this video has drawn the ire of women’s groups that are being assisted by the Culinary Union. They have demanded via letter and protest that Jackson be pulled from competition this weekend, a demand that will not be met.
