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.
Well, we can’t have anyone ‘bad mouthing’ companies, can we? I remember first hearing about White Chocolate Management when they were claiming to represent Fedor and putting out press releases tooting their own horn about all the stuff they do. To me they just look like non-exclusive third parties that try to set up deals so they can take their own cut. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but the whole ‘suing your own client’ thing seems a bit sketchy to me.
