Let me explain this to you because it really pisses me off that Ibarra has done what he has done, he is a thief. I have been running training camps for seven years up in Big Bear California and the most that my camp has cost a fighter to attend is $35,000. Ibarra was charging Jackson $65,000 to go to Big Bear. I don’t understand that!! He was being very disrespectful and taking advantage of ‘Rampage’. Including travel, training partners, food and lodging, the most ever was $35,000, maybe if you flew in more trainers…$40K. Where did that extra money go that Ibarra was charging? ‘Rampage’ is really pissed and he feels betrayed that he was taken advantage of and I couldn’t agree more with him. I don’t care if Juanito reads this or hears about it anywhere, he already knows that he is blackballed. I don’t care who you are; fighters work very hard for the money they earn and I feel slighted for even knowing Juanito.
Exactly and ‘Rampage’ put Juanito on mixed martial arts map. If it wasn’t for him no one would even know what a Juanito is. ‘Rampage’ is a straight up contender and he has a lot of years left in his career. I wish him the best of luck and hopefully something like this doesn’t happen again.
Shortly after the split, Rampage went on a tear trough Costa Mesa and is now facing a pair of felony charges.
Tito also confirmed that he is still in negotiations with the UFC, Affliction and EliteXC.
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has officially split with manager and trainer Juanito Ibarra and has joined the UK team Wolfslair, home of fighters Michael Bisping and Paul Kelly, according to Fighters Only Magazine.
Jackson told that Magazine that Juanito Ibarra has officially resigned his position at Jackson’s manager and trainer. The split was “amicable” and the two are on “good terms”, said McGann.
Gym Owner Anthony McGann:
“What better team to join than one called Wolfslair? I’m a werewolf. It was my destiny. People don’t understand destiny but I do. Wolfslair is the most perfect team for me.”
“because those guys got it together. Michael Bisping took to me like a brother from the first time I met him. He and Anthony were very hospitable towards me when I first came to the UK.
“I feel like Wolfslair can make me go farther than I have been; I’m really excited about being able to travel there to train. The guys on the team, they like to laugh and joke around but they train hard and that’s me, that’s what I like to do.”
