Rampage Will Not Renegotiate With The UFC

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
