Gag order! Scott Coker ends dialog on Rampage defection, defers to Bellator attorneys

Esther Lin

If there is going to be any more discussion on Quinton Jackson, who terminated his Bellator contract and re-signed with UFC just last weekend, it's not going to some from Bellator President Scott Coker.

That's because attorneys for the Viacom-owned mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion want everyone in the know to maintain radio silence, until they can figure out what course of action to pursue.

"I wish I could comment more," Coker told MMA Fighting. "The lawyers don't want us to comment on him right now. It's going to be in the [legal] process. Once it gets turned over to the lawyers out of your hands. There's nothing you can do."

Looks like Jackson got his wish.

"Rampage" insists he had the power to render his contract null and void after Bellator failed to live up to its end of the bargain. Namely, the many promises made by former head cheese Bjorn Rebney, who was sent packing earlier this year.

Perhaps the less said about this fiasco, the better.
