Rampage Jackson: I'll have one last fight in the UFCPosted on March 6, 2012, 08:11 AM by Anton Gurevich
Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson went "Rampage" on Twitter about his future with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Jackson announced he will have one more fight in the UFC, before moving to "other things on his mind". Also referring to the UFC, Jackson tweeted he's not interested in having "anybody negative" in his career.
The tirade continued with Rampage adding a controversial line about not getting paid enough as a fighter, despite leading the payroll for his most recent appearance at UFC 144 in Saitama, Japan. Jackson made $250,000 to show for his UFC 144 co-main event clash with Ryan Bader, minus $50,000 (20% fine) for missing weight.
Jackson expressed his desire to transition to Boxing on numerous occasions, which could easily be that "other thing" on his mind. James Toney, Kimbo Slice, and even someone like the controversial Derek Chisora (recently suspended from the WBC competition), could all serve as welcoming opponents for Quinton Jackson, who is apparently looking for another adventure in his illustrious fighting career.
One way or another, Jackson's next opponent inside the Octagon is expected to be no other than Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. Jackson and Rua fought back at PRIDE Total Elimination 2005, with the Brazilian winning via TKO (Soccer Kicks) in Round 1. In their UFC campaign, Jackson is currently 7-4, while Rua holds a less impressive record with 4 victories and 4 losses.
