Jackson’s father, of course, is one of the most well-known and beloved mixed martial artists in the history of the sport. Having fought in PRIDE, and Bellator, ‘Rampage’ Jackson reached the pinnacle of his combat sports career inside the Octagon, knocking out Chuck Liddell for the UFC light heavyweight title in May 2007. He also won Bellator’s season 10 heavyweight tournament in 2014, defeating King Mo in the final.
