Mar 13, 2012 - Quinton "Rampage" Jackson wants out of the UFC. It looks like he'll get his wish, but not before fulfilling the last fight on his current deal.

According to a report on Tuesday's edition of FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight," Jackson and the UFC have agreed to part ways after Jackson faces Mauricio "Shogun" Rua later this year.

Easy fight for Mr. Rua.

*** Prediction ***

After B.A. gets his arse handed to him, he will ONCE AGAIN blame some kind of phantom injury or some lame weight excuse as to why he ONCE AGAIN doesn't live up to the hype.

motivated Shogun vs unmotivated Rampage. Shogun 3 round decision, possible TKO if this is a 5 round main event

Well.. Rampage pissed off the UFC, lost a good chunk of his fanbase, and now is in need of a spectacular win in a do-or-die situation. All I can say is good luck to him.

Wouldn't surprise me in the least bit to see rampage in tip top shape and actually give Rua a challenge if not beat him

Kind of like a look at me now statement to Dana White

Anyone else think of the sort?

I like Shogun in this as well. Rampage is gonna get the fight he wants but it won't matter, as Shogun will be far more active and Rampage will be passive aggressive. Plus, Shogun can take a beating and still keep coming. Rampage doesn't have the heart that Shogun does

I agree with everything you said.but you don't think rampage will fight like he has nothing to lose?

Even with my fanship of rampage waning I still want him to give Rua a challenge.

I have Shogun by Decision.

I'm happy that Shogun probably gets another top tier win but its sad to see this is it for Rampage, here's to hoping he gets a few more wins in Japan before hangin it up and if he beats Rua he can retire happy anyway by avenging his quickest beating in the ring.

I expect this to be a good fight. Rampage needs a good performance to increase his marketability outside the UFC. If he has any discipline left, he will be on point against Shogun.

Rampage/Hendo and Shogun/Hendo were both wars. . . I think there was a lot of pride (get it) on the line in those fights and the same holds true here. These guys are fighting for all-time rankings as much as the current title picture. Both these guys hold wins over Chuck. They both hold wins over Machida. Rampage KOs Shogun, and there is at least a decent debate about which one of them was the best of their time, and maybe even all-time so far (although I personally think that Jones' accomplishments so far are more impressive than anything either has done in their whole careers), in the LHW ranks. Shogun beats Rampage again, and there is little question that Shogun is better.


Can't wait to see it. It's not really relevant to the title, but it is relevant to how history will be written.

Shogun should win this one but you never know. I wouldn't count Rampage out of anything. He needs to stay off his back, stay out of Shogun's clinch and land a few hard shots here and there. He needs to somehow stay away from the legkicks too. He needs to get in and get out. Gee, I guess after I think about it...Rampage is going to have to do an awful lot to win this fight. I wonder how Rampage would fare if he got Rua on the ground? Could he stay in good position, doing damage without allowing Rua to get up or lock in a submission? I don't know. Good luck Rampage....you might need it. Rampage needs to win by KO or TKO and he needs to do it early. If not...I think he is toast.

didnt wana say much on this whole Rampage v Zuffa thing since i'm a hugh Rampage fan (street soldier for life, lol), but i think Zuffa did alot for Rampage thru out his career, imo..i followd him from Pride to UFC and thru out..but he wants out and this is a bad way out..he came in horrible shape against Bader..and he's just too predictable now..i think Shogun will get back to his movement and angles..or should i say, not be so damn lazy this time and pick up the pace..he'll use leg kicks to chop down Rampage, something Rampage doesnt handle well..Shogun via tko...
