Despite being currently entangled in the legal system, Quinton Jackson is forging on with his mixed martial arts career.

After losing the title at UFC 86 via a unanimous, but controversial, judges decision, Jackson will likely grace the UFC’s first Northwestern card in Portland, Ore. at UFC 91. No opponent has been named for the embattled former champ, but speculation has named Mauricio “Shogun” Rua as a possible draw. Jackson badly lost to Rua in his latter days with the Pride Fighting Championships, falling to strikes in the first round of their 2005 fight. The news comes from a report by Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports after speaking with UFC president Dana White.

Jackson on Tuesday was charged with two felonies and four misdemeanors by the Orange County District Attorney’s office for a July 15 hit-and-run incident on the streets of Costa Mesa. If convicted, he could face up to three years in prison. A felony charge related to a female victim of the incident never materialized.

Holli Griggs was a passenger in one of the cars that Jackson sideswiped. Griggs was 16 weeks pregnant with a boy when she miscarried two weeks after the incident. Orange County DA spokeswoman Farrah Emami told MMAWeekly.com that a subsequent investigation of the miscarriage did not implicate Jackson.

For all he knows he could be in jail at the time of the fight. Who is he training with now?
8/27/08 6:20:02PM
He was only in jail for a short time intill Dana bailed him out.

I know that but he is facing 2 felonys and if convicted I heard he could recive up to 2 years in prison. Not to mention he is in Cali and if he is convitied on those 2 charges he is one felony away from life in prison.

Only Dana White would bring back a felon who hasn't been tried for his new slew of felony charges.
