Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson recently finished his contract with Bellator MMA.
The fighter wouldn’t mind returning to the UFC, but he has no idea what the status of his contract is since the promotion was sold after his last bout there.
“It’s very confusing,” Jackson said on The MMA Hour. “It’s no secret that I was in a lawsuit with Bellator after I went back with the UFC to fight Fabio [Maldonado], so I had to go back to Bellator and fulfill a contract and that contract ran out. I still have an existing contract with the UFC, but things change. The UFC, they sold the company since all that, so I don’t know. I haven’t talked to Dana personally about it. My manager Tiki Ghosn has been talking to him, but I think the UFC is doing great things for the company. They’re in a good place. I just don’t know what’s going to happen for me.”
Jackson’s last bout in the promotion came at UFC 186 in April 2015, where he defeated Fabio Maldonado by unanimous decision.
Another thing that the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion wouldn’t mind doing is enter the boxing ring.
“But now that Dana White is letting Conor McGregor box, I’ve always asked Dana to let me do some s**t like that,” Jackson continued. “Hopefully, Uncle Dana, if you got ties with boxing now, let me try some of that s**t.”
Bellator 175 was the last time that Jackson competed in any promotion, but he was defeated in a rematch via decision by King Mo.
