Quinton "Rampage" Jackson might only have one fight left in the UFC, according to a recent tweet posted by the former UFC light heavyweight champion.

I will fight who ever they put n front of me,I always have,but it will b my last fight n the ufc,I have other things on my mind

Jackson's last fight came against Ultimate Fighter winner Ryan Bader at UFC 144. The fight took place in Japan, a country where Jackson had fought many times before while making a name for himself in the Pride organization. His training for the fight had been hindered by injures, and he admitted after that he knew he was going to lose.

Many fans have been wondering if Jackson's motivation is being directed towards his other aspirations. The 33-year-old had a star role in The A-Team in 2010. It came before one of the more important fights of his UFC career against Rashad Evans. The fight had to be moved to a later date because of Jackson's filming schedule, and he would go on to lose a decision after having been out of the Octagon for almost a year.

Since that fight, he has gone 2-2 with victories over Lyoto Machida and Matt Hamill. He is currently riding a two-fight losing streak against reigning champion Jon Jones and Bader.

It is unsure of who he will fight next, but if it is his last in the UFC, he might get an opponent he has always wanted to rematch against in Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.

Jackson lost to the Brazilian muay-thai fighter in 2005. Shogun would go on to become the UFC light heavyweight title as well, but he has been battling injuries for most of his UFC career and is 2-3 in his last five.
