Rampage, Trainer Sued For $10 Million For Breach Of Contract

The following is an excerpt from an article on Sherdog.com:

White Chocolate Management (WCM) and its president, Reed Wallace, have filed a civil suit in New York State Supreme Court alleging UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson and his manager, Juanito Ibarra, are in breach of their contract with the Florida-based management and promotion company.

Wallace is asking for $10,000,000 in damages after being “forced into filing the lawsuit by Rampage's manager Juanito Ibarra, who 'bad mouthed'” WCM, according to a news release issued by the plaintiff on Thursday.

When contacted for comment, Ibarra acknowledged the existence of a “non-exclusive sponsorship deal,” but said he maintained sole managerial rights over Jackson, who captured the UFC title in May by knocking out Chuck Liddell.

Saying he had not seen the release, Ibarra declined to comment directly on the suit or statements made by WCM or Wallace.
