Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s found a new home.
After ending his contract with the UFC in January, rumors have been swirling around about where Jackson would end up going. Would he renegotiate with the UFC or go elsewhere? We finally have our answer.
Rampage will be joining Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and is making his way to Bellator. Bellator has slowly been adding more depth to their light heavyweight division over the past year and having a fighter as popular as Jackson adds more credibility to their organization.
He becomes an immediate contender for their light heavyweight championships, currently held by Attila Vegh. A bout between Jackson and King Mo seems inevitable. They are easily the two most polarizing fighters in mixed martial arts and a fight between them would provide huge numbers for Bellator.
Rampage last competed at UFC on Fox 6, losing to Glover Teixeira by unanimous decision. He’s a former UFC light heavyweight champion, defeating Chuck Liddell at UFC 71. He defended his title once against Dan Henderson before losing the belt to Forrest Griffin at UFC 86.
Bellator will be having a press conference in regards to the signing of Rampage on Wednesday and we should find out more details about the contract then.
