At the UFC 107 pre-fight press conference on Thursday in Memphis, Tenn., UFC President Dana White confirmed that former light heavyweight champion Quinon “Rampage” Jackson will be returning to the UFC in the near future.

However, before the fight could take place, Jackson announced his retirement from the sport, and his intention of becoming a full-time movie actor.
