UFC Not Sure If They Will Look To Bring “Rampage” Jackson Back Yet

UFC president Dana White isn’t sure what the future holds for former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. The fighter recently completed his contract with the promotion, falling to Glover Teixeira.

The loss was the third straight inside the Octagon for Jackson, and he had plenty of choice words for his now-former employer in the days leading up to the card. Still, White said there are plenty of factors yet to play out regarding “Rampage.”

“Despite the whole thing, I don’t dislike ‘Rampage,'” said White, during a recent interview on UFC Tonight. “Through all that crap leading up to what happened, I treated ‘Rampage’ the same as we always have.”

White did confirm there is a three-month window for the UFC to match any offer Jackson receives, but added, “I don’t know,” when asked if they will match. He did say that a conversation between White and Jackson’s manager recently took place.”

Jackson discussed in-depth his reasons behind wanting out of the UFC during several press events. He also hinted at a possible future in boxing, but said countless times he plans to remain in the fight business.
