Rampage Jackson regrets Bellator signing, admits he should have stayed with UFC 'devil'

Bellator MMA

Where the heck in Quinton Jackson?

It has been just over six months since we last saw "Rampage" inside the cage, a three-round unanimous decision win over Muhammed Lawal at Bellator 120. Turning away "King Mo" was expected to lead to a title shot against Emanuel Newton.

Then Bjorn Rebney got his walking papers and Jackson hasn't been seen since.

In fact, the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion was contemplating retirement after losing one of his biggest supporters, and now tells mixed martial arts (MMA) fans that maybe he should have just stayed with the devil all along.


Unfortunately, Jackson likely burned his bridge back to UFC (because of comments like this) and was not exactly lighting the world on fire before he left, having dropped three straight fights. In addition, Jackson has always had a chip on his shoulder about something.

And I'm sure this didn't help.
