UFC Quick Quote: Rampage Jackson could return for money

"Yeah, I’m sure we will see [Jackson return]. Rampage is under contract with us and this is where he makes his money ... so I’d say 'yes.' ... Rampage committed to doing ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ -- the highest rated season ever in the history of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ -- and then he bails on the fight. There’s a big difference [for not being more agreeable with his decision]."

-- UFC President Dana White is fairly confident that his former light heavyweight champion, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, will return to the Octagon despite his recent retirement to pursue an acting career. Jackson is currently on the set of the "A-Team," playing the role of his childhood television hero, B.A. Barracus. He was supposed to fight Rashad Evans at UFC 107 in Memphis, Tenn., on Dec. 12, which White says was an obligation for appearing as coach on "The Ultimate Fighter 10." Scheduling conflicts, however, made it impossible for Jackson to do both. He's been very vocal about his reasons for leaving, even referring to his former employer as a"assholes." So will Jackson make a triumphant return to the cage just like his formerly exiled friend, Tito Ortiz, or will stand his ground in the Hollywood hills? Perhaps more important ... do you even care one way or the other?
