Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has found a new home with Bellator MMA. Multiple outlets reported the signing earlier today, with Bellator recently confirming the news via press release.
Rampage Jackson’s contract will include him joining Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal as a fighter with both a deal with Bellator and TNA wrestling. The multi-year deal will also include Jackson taking part in multiple media ventures with Spike TV.
Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney was excited about the landmark deal reached with the fighter, stating,“The partnership that we’ve created with Quinton is unlike anything that’s ever been done in the sports & entertainment arena and Rampage is the perfect athlete/entertainer to carry it off.”
The promotion will hold a press conference on Wednesday that will include Jackson, Rebney, Spike TV president Kevin Kay, and TNA Wrestling president Dixie Carter to announce the companies plans for the former UFC light heavyweight champion.
Jackson left the UFC after a 7-5 record in the promotion. The one-time UFC light heavyweight champion had a tough relationship with the promotion since joining the promotion in 2007 due to legal issues and contractual wrangling.
