Rampage Jackson Regrets Becoming An MMA Fighter


Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will be taking on longtime rival King Mo for a second time this Friday Night at Bellator 175.

Despite lots of success in the MMA world, the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion actually regrets becoming a fighter.

“I would have to honestly say that my biggest regret is even starting this sport,” Jackson said on ESPN. “I gained a lot of fans, I made a lot of money, but I feel like I lost my family. I don’t see them. I don’t know them. My parents are getting older, and I’m living in California, away from them. I have my own family here, my kids and stuff, but I miss my cousins, my parents, and my sisters and brothers.”

When it is all said and done, the Bellator veteran just wants to be back with his family.

“My dream was to go and be a fighter, but then now I look back on it, and I wish that I would have just stayed back home with my family,” Jackson said.

Rampage defeated Mo via a controversial decision in their first meeting at Bellator 120.

Bellator 175 takes place on Friday, March 31 from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois with Rampage Jackson and King Mo headlining. Fightful will be providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
