“Rampage” is looking back on his illustrious career in the sport, but doesn’t seem to like what he sees.
Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and MMA veteran Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has 48 professional fights under his belt, his career spanning nearly 18 years. With that experience in mind, “Rampage” thinks even getting into MMA may have been a mistake.
In a recent ESPN Sports Center interview, Jackson explained his situation.
“I would have to honestly say that my biggest regret is even starting this sport. I think I would have lived a different life if I had stayed home in Memphis and worked at the family business. I’d be closer to my family and growing old with them, instead of living out in California.” Jackson said.
“My dream was to go and be a fighter, but now that I look back on it I wish I would have just stayed back home with my family.”
When asked why he wishes he never fulfilled his dream of being a fighter, Jackson retorted “I gained a lot of fans. I made a lot of money. But, I feel like I lost my family.”
Jackson is set to face Muhammed Lawal at Bellator 175 on March 31.
