Bellator MMA fighter Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson appeared recently on ESPN’s SportsCenter and said that 17 years later, he regrets ever starting a career in MMA.

“I would have to honestly say that my biggest regret is even starting this sport,” said Jackson as transcribed by MMAjunkie. “I gained a lot of fans, I made a lot of money, but I feel like I lost my family. I don’t see them. I don’t know them. My parents are getting older, and I’m living in California, away from them. I have my own family here, my kids and stuff, but I miss my cousins, my parents, and my sisters and brothers.”

Now 38, ‘Page feels he would led “a different life” staying in his home state of Tennessee, and working in the family construction business.

“My dream was to go and be a fighter,” he said. “But then now I look back on it, and I wish that I would have just stayed back home with my family.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
