While UFC President Dana White isn’t fond of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s decision to go Hollywood, UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn said that he supports Jackson’s decision.
“Fighting wears on you — especially in this sport — so everybody wants to get the big break and do some stuff outside of the sport,” Penn recently noted to SunSport.
“The Prodigy” stated that he believes that Jackson is perfect for the role of BA Barcus in the upcoming The A-Team movie, and is confident that Jackson will make his way back to the octagon someday.
“I hope everything works out for him,” he said. “But you could see him back in the UFC. Dana’s a forgiving guy and I’m sure Rampage is too, so I can see him fighting again.”
The A-Team movie is currently in production and is set to be released on June 11, 2010.
