‘Rampage’: I Think I’ve Fought My Last Fight

After 47 professional bouts, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson thinks he’s done with the sport of mixed martial arts, but not for reasons you may think.

He’s not too hurt to fight, nor is he unmotivated to put himself through a training camp at 37 years old.

“I really do think that I fought my last fight,” Jackson said on The MMA Hour Monday. “Because, you guys weren’t in the mediation with me when Viacom said what they want for me to settle. I felt like it was lopsided and my attorney felt like it was lopsided. I don’t think I can tell you [what it was], but I could sue them for a lot of money. Because I lost a lot of money. And they want to settle, I was like wow.

“I don’t think I can tell you guys, but if I ever find out I can tell you, I’ll put it out there. But I don’t think I can.”

The former UFC light heavyweight champion is currently in the middle of a legal battle with his former employers at Viacom, the parent company overseeing Bellator MMA. It all started once “Rampage” decided to leave Bellator to return to the Octagon — a move which Viacom obviously considered to be in violation of his exclusive deal with the promotion.

Only that “Rampage” claims his former employer was breaching its contract, allowing him to leave the promotion and rejoin the UFC.

Despite nearly being pulled from the UFC 186 card in April, Jackson went on to fight Fabio Maldonado, earning a three-round unanimous decision victory over the Brazilian slugger.
