Quinton Jackson hasn’t shied away about wanting to leave the UFC, and even UFC President Dana White has said the former champion needs to go work for people that make him happy. Though Jackson would never offer any specific reasons as to why he wanted to leave so badly, citing poor treatment, “Rampage” is now saying that the UFC lied to him about PPV buys in order to short change him on payment.
In the following video, watch Jackson explain a few of the reasons why you won’t see him in the Octagon anymore…
Rampage told TMZ:
“In my opinion, I just feel like me and the rest of the UFC fighters are getting taken advantage of. I feel like the UFC is cleaning house. Like the pay-per-view dollars, they tell me one number, but then they tell the press one number. Pay me the numbers that you tell the press. Don’t tell me, ‘Oh, we only made this, we only sold this many.’ Then you tell the press, ‘Oh we sold this many.’ But then I’m like, ‘Hey, you only told me we only sold 800,000 buys, but you told the press you sold a million buys.’ [They say,] ‘Oh, we’re just saying that for the press.’ No, no, just pay me like what you told the press then, because you lying somewhere. You either lying to me or you lying to the press about the pay-per-view numbers. You know what I’m saying? If they’re doing it to me, I’m sure they’re doing it to other fighters.”
