Rampage Jackson signs with Bellator
Quinton "Rampage" Jackson is taking his talents to Bellator. Jackson, who did not re-sign with the UFC following his unanimous decision loss to Glover Teixeira in January, has signed an exclusive contract with Bellator, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. According to those same sources, Jackson's new deal will be similar to the one "King" Muhammed Lawal signed with the promotion last year, which gave him the opportunity to appear on TNA Impact Wrestling programming on Spike TV. Jackson has flirted with the idea of pursuing a pro wrestling career in the past, and it seems as though he will soon get a chance to showcase himself as a sports entertainer.

"However, this story about a 'phantom' Bellator representative making phony offers to fighters just strains credulity." Garcia fought 17 times under the Zuffa banner from 2007 until this past month's UFC 159 event. While always an entertaining brawler, Garcia suffered five consecutive losses in the UFC's octagon and was released from his contract with the promotion...
