Shortly following his UFC 144 loss to Ryan Bader, Jackson took to his Twitter to voice his displeasure with how things had been going lately with the UFC. Rampage stated his intention to make his next fight in the Octagon his last, before moving on to compete for other promotions.
Though UFC president Dana White seemed to think that Jackson was just reacting poorly to his upsetting defeat at UFC 144, Jackson is sticking to his guns. Last night, the 33-year-old expressed his desire to cut ties with the UFC now and not after making another appearance with the promotion.

A veteran of PRIDE and the UFC, Jackson sports a professional record of 32-10. He’s currently riding a two-fight losing streak, having dropped consecutive contest to current champion Jon Jones and Bader.
