In what could be described as shocking news to very few, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson appears to be ready to come out “retirement” to bless the UFC and his legions of fans with his presence in the Octagon… for a limited time only.
Many of you will remember the announcement of Jackson’s retirement just a little over two months ago when the former champion threw a verbal temper tantrum in the direction of the UFC due to their being disappointed with his decision to turn his back on a highly anticipated showdown with Rashad Evans following the recent completion of The Ultimate Fighter 10 due to the filming of the A-Team remake. You know, the blog where Quinton goes on and on about how much he had done for the UFC, and how ungrateful the promotion had been to him.
Well the most recent revelation in this ongoing soap opera has Rampage promising to make his long awaited return to the sport according to a recent blog on his official website, for a little while at least.
I wanted to let my fans know that I’m going to come back to the UFC [to] finish my contract – not because the haters are talking [expletive] about me being scared of Rashad … or anybody else. I’m coming back for my fans and to shut Rashad’s mouth up and shut Dana’s mouth up. Then after that I’m going back to doing movies, and I might do a boxing match once a year just to stay in shape.
No news is currently available as to a possible return date for Jackson but stay tuned to 5 Oz. as we promise to keep you up to date on any news of the return of the Rampage.
