SAN DIEGO, CA, May 14, 2007 – San Diego-based skate/surf lifestyle brand, Osiris (, has recently signed a deal with Ultimate Fighter, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, to create a special edition “Rampage” shoe.

Rampage, currently the #1 contender for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship, is one of the most exciting and charismatic fighters in the sport. He has fought in both PRIDE and UFC bouts, amassing a career record of 26-6. He is slated to fight Chuck Liddell for the title at UFC 71, on May 26, 2007. This is one of the most anticipated fights in UFC history, as Rampage is the last person to defeat Liddell, the current UFC Lightweight Heavyweight Champion- doing so in definitive fashion, by scoring a T.K.O., in 2003.

The Osiris/Rampage relationship was made possible through Triumph United ( Triumph United, an industry leader in the mixed martial arts world, producing fight gear and apparel, is responsible for introducing Rampage to Osiris. Triumph United lends their expertise of the M.M.A. world to Osiris for their Rampage shoe.

“We are very excited to see the bridge between action sports and MMA complete now. Rampage is very stoked to be working with such a great company,” said Hans Molenkamp, President of Triumph United. “It only makes sense that Rampage would join forces with a progressive company like Osiris. His fighting style emulates everything they do as a shoe company- Dynamic, Powerful, and Revolutionary.”

“Good ideas usually come from thinking outside the box, but in this case, great ideas have come from thinking inside the cage,” said Osiris Creative Creative Officer and Head Footwear Designer, Brian Reid. “Rampage is a great addition to our team and his shoe will help to strengthen the bond between action sports companies, like Osiris, and mixed martial arts.”

Rampage, a fighter who never seems to be at a loss for words, has an innovative use for his new shoe with Osiris: “Now you can put foot to backside, just like me,” said Rampage.

  1. This is going to be interesting

  2. SergioTX says:

    Here lies the problem: do you buy a poorly designed pair of shoes simply to do your part to support an athlete you enjoy watching?

    And if you do, does that encourage Osiris to continue making poorly designed shoes?

    But if you don’t, will Osiris not take the hint that maybe it was their shoe and instead blame Jackson as not being the selling tool they believed he would be?
