Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson has made it clear he wants to leave the UFC and will only be fighting for the promotion one more time. More than likely, we will see Jackson finish off his UFC career in a fight against Glover Teixeira. They were scheduled to fight at UFC 153 in Brazil, but Jackson was forced off the card with injuries. “Rampage” still wants to fight Teixeira, but he also wants to fight Forrest Griffin again. The former champ feels the judges got the decision wrong when he fought Forrest, and he thinks ‘you’re a bigot’ if you know MMA and disagree with him.
Jackson explained himself to Middleeasy.com:
“I got hurt. I couldn’t fight Glover. I didn’t want to wait that long. Forrest’s opponent pulled out. Why not just go fight Forrest? I’ll fight Forrest and I’ll still fight Glover later. Everyone knows I’ve been gunning for Forrest, because anybody who knows MMA and got a true heart, a real heart, and [is] not a bigot, they know I won that fight. That’s real talk.”
