Quinton “Rampage” Jackson addressed his one year hiatus from MMA, how much longer he intends to compete, his future in the movies, and his return to Bellator in a recent talk with media.
In 2013, the former UFC light heavyweight champion left the promotion to compete in Bellator. One year later, Rampage returned and fought at UFC 186, but that fight was nearly called off due to a contractual dispute with Bellator. In February 2016, the Tennessee native resolved the dispute and went back to Bellator. He’ll fight next on June 24 in St. Louis, Missouri.
Though he thought he’d retire at 35-years-old, Jackson will face Olympic gold medalist Satoshi Ishii four days after his 38th birthday at Bellator 157: Dynamite 2.
This year, Jackson will also appear in four movies which are soon to be released. Jackson starred as B.A. Baracus in the major motion picture The A-Team in 2010 and mentioned he’s starting up his own production company.
