Quinton Rampage Jackson Contemplates Retirement

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (35-11) began competing in mixed martial arts in 1999, over a span of 15 years, the 35 year old has fought all over the world for promotions such as Gladiator Challenge, King of the Cage, Pride, UFC, and most recently Bellator.

Today, Rampage posted on his instgram that he is considering hanging it up, and retiring from the sport.

The1st time Chuck and I fought was in Japan. Pride reps asked me 2 give him a good beating even tho I had 2 fights that night. I lost my 2nd fight that night cause I did what they asked,and they stood up the fight with Wand to soon,in my opinion.. MMA hasn’t had my back they way I had it’s back. Time for me to think about retirement. Or fighting 4 myself..

The former UFC light heavyweight champion holds career victories over Chuck Liddell x2, Lyoto Machida, Wanderlei Silva, Dan Henderson, and long-time rival, King Mo Lawal.

Rampage is currently on a 3-fight win streak in his career, recently defeating King Mo Lawal at Bellator 120 via a controversial unanimous decision.

Not surprisingly, King Mo responded on twitter to Rampage’s potential retirement contemplation by calling him out once again.
