It seems like yesterday that Quinton “Rampage” Jackson was coming into the UFC fold; he was one of the first fighters from Pride to make the migration and it looked like he’d be fighting in the Octagon for a very long time.
Now, over five years later, Jackson can’t wait to put as much distance between himself and the UFC as possible; at 34 years old, it would seem the UFC would be an ideal perch for a fighter to enjoy the last years of his career.
He’s sick with all of the limitations he feels the UFC unfairly imposes on its fighters, and he’s tired of losing decisions to fighters who would rather wrestle with him than stand and slug it out.
All that translates to a man who’s tired of losing and when that happens, the man has the choice of elevating his game or finding new surroundings.
It looks like Jackson will chose the latter, and now that he can see the light at the end of the tunnel when he fights Glover Teixeira Saturday at UFC on Fox 6, one begins to wonder if Jackson has given any thought to what his life as a fighter is going to be like outside of the UFC.
For sure, he’s going to experience some changes and here are just a few of them...
