‘Rampage’ Jackson signs multi-fight Bellator contract
One of MMA’s all-time greats will continue fighting for Bellator.
The promotion today announced that it has signed Quinton Jackson to a multi-fight contract. “Rampage” (37-12 MMA, 4-1 BMMA) is expected to return to action in early 2018.
“I am excited for this new beginning and looking forward to an action packed 2018,” Jackson said in a Bellator-issued statement. “I can’t wait to get back in the cage and put on exciting fights for both the ‘Rampage’ and Bellator fans.”
Jackson, 39, most recently competed under the Bellator banner earlier this year in March, dropping a unanimous decision to Muhammed Lawal in a heavyweight main event at Bellator 175. The rematch loss snapped a five-fight winning streak.
“With ‘Rampage’ Jackson, you know what you’re going to get every time he steps inside the Bellator cage – an exciting fight and interest from fans all over the world,” Bellator President Scott Coker said. “I knew that keeping ‘Rampage’ with Bellator was integral to our continued growth as a promotion, and I’m pleased that we were able to come to an agreement that allows us to plan some great future matchups for him.”
