Have you ever heard of the Culinary Union? It has nothing to do with the Culinary Academy, a place for cooking that Jared Allen likes to joke about when introducing himself on Sunday Night Football.

The Culinary Union I am talking about is an adversary the UFC has gone up with many times before. It is the group that is currently ensuring that the UFC stays out of New York.

However, this time around, they are leading the charge with other women's groups to try and get Quinton Jackson taken off of the UFC on Fox 6 card in Chicago.

This may not come as a shock, as Jackson is quite controversial. However, you may be thinking, "What did Jackson do this time?"

No, he didn't hump any more female reporters. And no, he didn't motorboat Karen Bryant and tell her that "Jamaican me horny," again.

Don't worry, "Rampage" simply made a video about how to rape a woman in a parking garage last year, no big deal.

Sarcasm aside, this video has drawn the ire of women's groups that are being assisted by the Culinary Union. They have demanded via letter and protest that Jackson be pulled from competition this weekend, a demand that will not be met.

I understand, the video Jackson made was completely inappropriate and insensitive. In fact, Jackson explained he made the video with the goal of getting kicked out of the UFC.

However, Jackson should not be pulled for this video. It was an incredibly dumb thing, but they should not succumb to the Culinary Union's demands. 

In fact, this is not the first time the Culinary Union demanded the UFC pull a fighter from a card.

The Union blasted the UFC last month for letting Jeremy Stephens and Abel Trujillo, both with past legal issues on their hands, compete on the UFC on Fox 5 card.

Dana White and the UFC will not pull Jackson from the card and even called the Culinary Union "gangsters" who have been doing "dirty stuff" for a while.

Don't expect Jackson off the card Saturday. 

The full letter can be read here.
