Rampage Jackson is about to have his swan song with the UFC when his faces Glover Teixiera at UFC on Fox. This could be such a good stand and bang match that made Rampage famous. Looks like he is done with fighting in the UFC though and will either be fighting in K-1/WWE /Boxing or something else.
“I don’t want to renegotiate with them, I think the UFC don’t know how to treat the athletes, in my opinion. I feel like the fighters do a lot for the sport and I feel like we’re not taken care of well enough. I feel like they’re getting rich off all of us. You know what? Honestly I put my time in. I did my thing. I feel like I think my next challenge is if I go somewhere, I want to be very exciting. Maybe I want to try some boxing and see if I do some boxing or kickboxing … I think my strategy, I’ve done jiu-jitsu tournaments, wrestling tournaments, kickboxing fights, but I’ve never done boxing. I think that’s my biggest challenge, to see if I can be a pro boxer. I hear Kimbo Slice is doing pretty good.
“I’ve been mad at UFC for long time, and it turned me into a very negative person. I just want to be a positive person. That’s the first thing I do is get rid of all the negativity out of my life. I had a lot of negative friends, even some negative family members, and I’m getting rid of the UFC out of my life. I just want to be a positive person and positive role model for my kids and for other young people coming up. I just want a positive life. No matter what the outcome on Jan. 26 is, I’m going to be happy with everything because I’ve trained very hard and I trained to destroy Glover. I trained every aspect, on the ground, wrestling, standup, everything. I trained to be strong and then leave UFC on a positive note and go on with my life. The UFC will be my past.” – Quinton Jackson via MMAFighting
