In bringing about a lawsuit against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Bellator MMA has revealed a number of bonuses they paid the former UFC light heavyweight champion.
After competing three times for Bellator, Jackson resigned with the UFC. He is tentatively set to meet Fabio Maldonado later this year.
According to documents obtained by Newsday, Bellator provided Jackson with a signing bonus of $100,000, was to give him at least $200,000 per fight and $35,000 for every episode of “Rampage4Real” that aired on Spike TV – which was four total.
Also, they were contractually obligated to retain a screenwriter to work directly with Jackson to develop a feature film through Paramount Pictures, which Viacom owns.
Jackson posted on Twitter that “the paper work is in but it’s still a JOKE! Plus throwing papers on the ground outside my gym in the parking lot is not serving me.”
