If you have not already heard then the sad news is that Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson has decided to hang up his gloves and quit the UFC and fighting in general. However the good news is he will be offered more money that he can refuse to come back fighting in a year or two!!
Earlier this week Rampage, told his official website he was ‘done fighting’ amid a feud with UFC president Dana White. Apparently Rampage feels he a) deserves a title shot against current light heavyweight champ, Lyoto Machida and b) because the UFC would not change the date of his UFC 107 bought against Rashad Evans.
Jackson is shooting his new film, the A-Team, playing B.A. Baracas. And for the record I think he will do a good job!
“I still feel the UFC is a great organization and I felt like I was very loyal to them but they didn’t respect my loyalty but I wish the UFC the best,” he wrote on his Web site. “I did a lot of things for them. I wish no bad blood between us but I have kids & a family back in Memphis to provide for & thats all that matters to me!”
As I said i think fighting is in Rampage’s blood and with such a big box office smash he will be back in the octogan soon. no different from Tito Ortis or Randy Couture.
