Bellator’s “Rampage” Jackson Says “Sometimes You Should Just Stay With the Devil You Know, UFC”
By FCF Staff
“Rampage” Jackson has yet to be booked for his next Bellator fight, after he earned a decision win over “King Mo” Lawal in May, and it looks as though issues with the promotion are the reason why.
After Jackson signed with Bellator last year, the former UFC champ repeatedly praised the organization, but was upset when former CEO Bjorn Rebney left.
More recently, the 36 year-old fighter has posted the following comments on his Instagram and Twitter accounts:
It’s been 15 years since I started my career,I’ve had some crazy fights,ups and downs,wins and losses,and some painful injuries.. Love this sport that changed my life,love all the fans that supported me over the years! Thanks.. You guys make all the other BS worth it. A lot of people keep asking when is my next fight,I’ll always keep it real with y’all. I’m going threw the fight that y’all never see. The fight with the promoters or the promotion. But don’t trip no matter what I’m not done yet. Still plan on boxing b4 I lay the gloves down. Sorry I can’t give another 15 years to this sport but I hope to still entertain y’all some how. #respect #memphisfighter
Just a thought.. But I’ve learned a big lesson in life and business: sometimes u should just stay with the devil u know @ufc

Jackson has won three straight fights since he joined Bellator and currently holds a record of 35-11. Prior to leaving the UFC, the light-heavyweight lost three straight bouts, and was also heavily critical of the promotion.
