Rampage Jackson’s Shocking Transformation From Light-Heavyweight To Heavyweight

Quinton Jackson aka “Rampage Jackson” has cultivated a entertaining career in the sport of mixed martial arts through the years. “Rampage” eventually made his way to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), where the fighter faced off against some of the toughest opponents that the MMA world has to offer. Still, Jackson made his way to the top of the highly talented promotion by becoming the UFC light heavyweight champion. Since then, “Rampage” had decided to part ways with the world’s most famous mixed martial arts promotion in preference to competing promotion Bellator MMA.
