Rampage Jackson Unhappy With UFC, Says He's Leaving After Next Fight

Quinton Jackson, who is coming off a loss to Ryan Bader in Japan, is currently vacationing in Pampanga, which is one of the provinces in the Philippines. During his stay in the country, Rampage has sent out a few interesting tweets. The former UFC champion, who has been known to get emotional about things, said that after his next fight, he plans on leaving the UFC, and fighting for other promotions:

Quote:
I will fight who ever they put n front of me,I always have,but it will b my last fight n the ufc,I have other things on my mind
Quote:
I didn't say I would b done fighting,I just said I'm not fighting 4 the UFC,(u fight cheap)I said I have other things on my mind (big head)
Jackson went on to explain why he isn't happy with the UFC, tweeting "Why should I stay? I don't need them or anybody else negative dealing with my (career)... MMA, okay. UFC, not okay after".

Knowing how emotional Rampage can get at times, I expect that this will all just boil over once he speaks with the UFC brass and patches things up. Either way, even if he wants to push through with this a few months after, it won't be easy as there will be very limited options available for him outside of the UFC.

I am down for shogun caving in rampages ribs again. Rampage is embarrassing nowadays. Just a bitter prick who doesn't fight with any sort of passion. A energy drink sipping, baby killing headcase.

I'm in agreement with everyone else. Setup Shogun/Rampage, if this doesn't motivate Page to train than nothing will, let him get beat down and leave.

So many Rampage haters nowadays

I for one hopes he can get re-motivated but with the fame hes garnished it seems fighting is an afterthought to the other opportunities that have come to him. Doubtful he will fight after his last fight in the UFC. But I will always remember his fights in Pride and his HILARIOUS comments.

Page should honestly just retire. He's not a marquee fighter anymore, and frankly, i think the game has passed him by.

No interest in seeing him phone in more fights.

He has let himself become obsolete. I mean, who can they bring in for him to beat at this point ?

He's so lazy he can hardly outpoint someone in striking.
