Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (36-11) is looking to fight again after winning at UFC 186 several months back, but that Jackson has one problem that is in his way. Jackson remains under a general injunction after a judge ruled against a motion to dismiss, and there’s no timetable on the case.
While appearing on the MMA Hour this week, Jackson mentioned that he would rather retire than fight for Bellator MMA if he can’t get cleared in this case and fight in the UFC.
However, it appears that things have changed for Jackon.
Jackson posted this on his website:
“UFC just stopped me from retiring. More news to come on my next fight.”

As noted earlier on the site, for months now, Jackson has called out Mauricio “Shogun” Rua multiple times online for a fight.
Rua confirmed in a recent interview that he’s interested in a fight with Jackson.
It’s speculated that this is the fight that Jackson is talking about, but that’s not confirmed by any means.
