UFC Quick Quote: 'Rampage' Jackson wants to retire and make motorboat contests

"Just because I want to have a career after I get done fighting, nobody should think I'm not determined and not have passion. This is my career. This is my life. I don't lack any passion. This is what I do. But yeah, I got lots of things I want to do. I wanna design video games, a whole lot of things. I want to make motor-boating contests. There's a lot of stuff I wanna design and I wanna do. After I get done fighting, I'm gonna go and pursue other things, but don't hate on me because I want to have a career after MMA."

Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson (via tells the mixed martial arts (MMA) community that he is indeed a passionate guy. He's passionate about fighting, making movies, designing video games and of course, motorboating. Lest these recent press conference remarks leave you feeling that Jackson is taking part in next year's Kyōtei, may I direct your attention to the black-on-breast crime over the Memorial Day Weekend. Until then, the fighter formerly known as "B.A. Baracus" will have his hands full at UFC 135 on Sept. 24, when he challenges reigning division champion Jon Jones for the 205-pound strap at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. Anyone think "Bones" gets "Rampage" to retire early? Or will the former PRIDE star upset the young phenom in "Mile High City?" A lot more still to be heard from Jackson on movies, fighting and whooping ass right here.
