Quinton Jackson finds a home

by:  Jack Bratcher

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has joined fellow fighters Michael Bisping and Paul Kelly at the Wolfslair fight team according to Fighters Only. Gym owners, Anthony McGann and Lee Gwynne confirmed he has signed a three-year deal with the British team.

McGann aknowledges that Jackson’s former coach, Juanito Ibarra did resign but that they parted on good terms.

It seems Jackson and Bisping have formed a close relationship so that combined with the fact they are called “Wolfslair,” made it an easy choice for the Memphis native known for his wolf-like howls.  He even spoke of it being “destiny.”

It seems when Jackson fights in the U.S. his camp will be split between Big Bear, where they will bring the Wolfslair to him, and England, which is the homebase of the team.  And when he fights in England, his full camp will be there.  His day-to-day training will continue at the Huntington Beach Ultimate Training Center.
