Rampage Jackson: 'I Thought I Was a God'

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson says that he was suffering from temporary delirium when he was arrested in a hit-and-run car crash, but what exactly does "delirium" mean? Jackson says in this interview that he thought he was a god:

"I was delirious, and I turned to the Bible, and in my mind, I thought I was a god. I thought, you know, I'm son of God, so my father's God, so I'm a god, too."

Rampage has indicated that a poor diet in the days following his loss to Forrest Griffin led to his delirium, and that he is now healthy and ready to resume his career. Although he faces two felony charges in connection with the incident, the UFC has said it stands behind him, and he could be back as soon as UFC 91 in November.
