I think it’s fair to say the most popular New Year’s resolution is “Lose weight and get in shape,” so it should come as no surprise to learn that former UFC light heavyweight champion, Quinton Jackson, is going to follow suit.
Especially after ballooning up to 265 pounds for his most recent fight.
“Hate letting my people and fans down, maybe this won’t be my last loss but it will be the last time I defeat myself,” Jackson wrote on Instagram. “I’m gonna document my weight loss journey. If you feel uncomfortable with your weight do it with me. Tag me in your posts of you working out and eating clean.”
A bloated Jackson got socked and rocked by former PRIDE heavyweight kingpin, Fedor Emelianenko, at the Bellator 237 event last weekend in Japan. Getting stopped by “The Last Emperor” (see it) marked his third loss in his last four fights.
