The Storm After the Calm: Teahupoo Delivers
With the power of one right hook, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson made his name in the UFC. Jackson (27-6), in his second UFC fight, came to the Octagon cascaded by boos, but left wrapped in gold. Jackson, who made his name fighting in Japan for Pride FC, landed a crushing right hook that sent Chuck Liddell (20-4) to the canvas. Jackson then pounced on the highly popular UFC light heavyweight champion, landed four rights to Liddell's head as Referee John McCarthy stopped the match at 1:53 in the first round in front of 14,728 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. "I was real relaxed, that's what I do," Jackson said. "Chuck was right. He said someone was going to get knocked out in the first round...I didn't expect Chuck to go down like that, it was destiny."

On a sunny Saturday afternoon in Chula Vista, California, a feisty crowd was on hand to witness the kickflip prowess of 39 competitors. 72 was the high score of the day by Daniel Rincon. After the initial challenge the top 10 high volume kickflippers competed in a BONUS ROUND where they had to do as many kickflips over a sawhorse as possible. When the dust settled, young Diego Najera was on top with 2 flips over the obstacle. This year's event went off without any problems and every competitor walked away with at the very least a hat or a tee. Daniel left with an Osiris backpack full of Krux trucks, Pig Wheels, BONES Bearings, and a ZERO deck. Diego walked with a similar backpack. Fun was had by all.
