Video featuring UFC fighter sparks protest

Some women’s advocacy groups want to stop a fighter from competing in this weekend’s Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is set to compete in the championship this Saturday night at the United Center.

The advocacy groups claim Jackson appeared in a video that, they believe, made light of rape.quintonjackson

The video, featured on YouTube, shows Jackson giving advice on picking up women.

In the video, he suggests using chloroform and duct tape until a woman pulls a gun on him.

UFC officials say they find the video “tasteless” but they’ve agreed to let Jackson compete.
