Quinton Jackson seeking exit from UFC for personal reasons

If an average fan was asked to list the Top 5 moodiest fighters in Mixed Martial Arts it is likely popular UFC light heavyweight Quinton Jackson would be among them. Nicknamed “Rampage”, the 33-year can be in a jovial mood one day and downright nasty the next.

The 32-10 Jackson’s reputation for expressing his emotions recently came to light again when he revealed a surprising turn of events concerning his future in the organization he currently calls home. According to the PRIDE icon, his next fight for the UFC will likely be his last under their banner, citing displeasure with his salary and the desire to be employed in what he feels is a positive environment.

Labeling the UFC as standing for “U Fight Cheap”, Jackson went on Twitter this week where his desire to depart was made clear, adding he’d fight anyone the company put in front of him but that he expected it to be his final appearance inside the Octagon.

“Rampage” is coming off a decision loss to Ryan Bader at UFC 144 where he said he fought hurt, missing weight based partially based on a decision to inject testosterone into his injured knee and being unable to shed the additional bulk.
