“Rampage” Jackson To Try Boxing When UFC Contract Expires

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has discussed his post-UFC plans many, many times, mostly focusing on trying his hand at becoming a full-time actor. Now, it would seem that Jackson, who was submitted by Jon Jones at UFC 135 this past weekend in a bout for the UFC light heavyweight title, has another second career goal in mind: boxing.

“I hate fighting people who are scared. When you fight somebody who is scared you never know what they’re going to do. They turn and run,” Jackson stated on ESPN’s UFC Podcast. “That’s why I’m gonna go to boxing. I’m gonna try boxing because they’ve got to stand with you. If I get knocked out I don’t care because at least it’s a fight. I’ve tried a lot of boxing, I’m falling in love with boxing and I know I can put butts on seats over there.”

For the immediate future, Jackson is looking to return to Japan with the UFC in early 2012. Jackson has publicly stated that he would like rematches with either Mauricio “Shogun” Rua or Forrest Griffin at the event.
