LET'S GET READY TO RUUUUUUMMMBLE! In the red corner, the contrarian assassin Armond White. In the blue corner, wearing gold chains… the highest grossing film actor of all time, Samuel Leroy "Uncle Tom" Jackson!

I'm just sayin'… if Mr. White called me the ultimate Uncle Tom, we'd have to fight or sumtin'.

I remember Tambay saying if Samuel Jackson was asked to respond to that mess, he could only imagine his reply would be something like, "Man, I don't give a f*ck about Armond White", but here we go again. Samuels' playing another dysfunctional black villain who Armond hates with a passion, so what's up, will Samuel go down like a punk?

But I am wondering who would win a fist fight between the two big hitters? Armond is from the tough streets of Detroit, the home of Thomas "The Hit Man" Hearns. But, I think Samuel has a secret weapon that has serve him well, in past battles. Well, during childhood, he had a stuttering problem, which he conquered by developing an affinity for the use of the curse word, motherfucker, in his vocabulary. Yep, we've all heard Samuel say that word with a passion all his own.

So I'd pick the intimidating black man who's noted for saying MOTHERF*CKER real good, over a dreadlocks wearing contrarian, any day.
