Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, who announced in September that he was “done fighting,” today announced on his official website that he’ll soon return to the UFC to finish out his contract:
I’ve noticed that the UFC & TUF have some fans brainwashed or something. They still haven’t realized yet that the TV show is just a TV show. I did my job by entertaining people and if you ever paid any attention to me, that’s what I’m known for doing.
Now, I wanted to let my fans know that I’m going to come back to the UFC & finish my contract. Not because the haters are talking shit about me being scared of Rashad or Titties or anybody else. I’m coming back for my fans & to shut Rashad’s mouth up & shut Dana’s mouth up. Then after that I’m going back to doing movies & I might do a boxing match once a year just to stay in shape. Hate on dis!
Before abruptly announcing his retirement several months ago, “Rampage” served as a coach on The Ultimate Fighter 10 and was slated for a grudge match with rival opposing coach and fellow former champion Rashad Evans at UFC 107, but the matchup was postponed and ultimately scratched due to Rampage’s role in the upcoming A-Team movie.
