Anyone who reads this website with any regularity knows that we love MMA. I love MMA. I love UFC, and I especially love Rampage Jackson. But Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson has gone too damn far this time. Sure, Rampage has never been one to give conventional interviews, and he did not exactly act like a boy scout when he was UFC light heavyweight champion and decided to go on a police chase that would make O.J. blush. But, this is an entirely different thing. Rampage wants out of UFC.

Taste the sad, Yahoo! sports:

“I will fight whoever they put in front of me, I always have, but it will be my last fight in the UFC,” Jackson wrote. “I have other things on my mind.

“I didn’t say I would be done fighting, I just said I’m not fighting for the UFC (u fight cheap). Said I have other things on my mind (big head).”

From the sound of Jackson’s messages, he’s obviously unhappy with the UFC for both their pay structure as well as advice they are giving him on his career.

Okay, let’s…let’s just stop talking crazy here (laughs nervously). Let’s…just..talk..about it…(sweating profusely, tiptoeing up to Rampage, while concealing an ether rag).

To be fair, UFC does screw over their fighters, but Rampage isn’t one of them. Yahoo correctly points out that the UFC, and particularly Dana White, stood behind Jackson after the police chase, after he went off to star in the ********* A-Team, and through years of back-and-forth about his future with the company. Rampage puts butts in the seats. But be careful what you wish for because it’s not like Strikeforce or Bellator are realistic options right now.
