Rampage Jackson Says His Next UFC Fight Will Be His Last

Uh oh. Something’s wrong with Rampage Jackson again.

Rampage Jackson has had a fairly turbulent relationship with the UFC filled with plenty of peaks and valleys since he joined the organization back in 2007. And unfortunately, it seems the relationship has hit another one of it’s rough spots.

Out of the blue last night, Rampage declared on Twitter that his next UFC fight will be his last, though he wouldn’t say why other than insinuating that he’s underpaid. The only thing Rampage did clarify was that he will continue to fight, just not for the UFC.

I will fight who ever they put n front of me,I always have,but it will b my last fight n the ufc,I have other things on my mind

I didn’t say I would b done fighting,I just said I’m not fighting 4 the UFC,(u fight cheap)I said I have other things on my mind (big head)

@VWAssassin: @Rampage4real your leaving the UFC?” Y should I stay? I don’t need them or anybody else negative dealing with my carrie

@DrjftGaming: @Rampage4real Will you still do MMA, or is this your last MMA fight period?” Guys learn how 2 read! MMA ok UFC no ok after

Sorry guys just been going threw a lot n I was trying 2 stay positive last night,n it worked,so I’m just gonna start over! U helped me!

I know 1 place I’m not going back 2! I’m going 2 b with my wife n kids n sin no more! Just ask 4 forgiveness! #new I’d win this 1!

I need help with positive energy once again,u can tell things aint right,u helped me last night! I love u all,wish I could say what’s up

Sigh… This declaration obviously brings up a lot of questions that we unfortunately just don’t have the answers to. Rampage briefly mentioned money, but it doesn’t seem like that’s the only issue here. Could it have something to do with that controversial interview he did with Fighters Only last week? Or perhaps a contract negotiation that’s already soured? Who knows, but clearly something is going on.

I wouldn’t worry about it too much though. His emotions may be running high now, but once he eventually calms down the reality of the situation will remain the same. There just aren’t any viable options for top name fighters outside of the UFC anymore. Just ask Tim Sylvia.
