Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson On Leaving UFC: It’s Their Loss, Not Mine

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has likely stepped inside the Octagon for the last time in his fighting career.

Following a third consecutive defeat, Jackson’s contract with the promotion expired. Both sides appear set to part ways, and, as far as “Rampage” is concerned, that’s find by him.

“I think it’s the UFC’s loss,” said Jackson, during a recent appearance on Inside MMA. “Not mine, because I can go to any organization on the planet and have a successful career.”

Jackson (32-11) and White butted heads several times over the last few years. From his run-in with the law following a loss to Forrest Griffin, to the decision to leave MMA and film the movie “The A-Team,” the two have not been on the best of terms.

The fighter has stated his desire to possibly try boxing down the road, but has reiterated many times that he will continue to fight despite being 34 years old.
