Quinton Jackson says, “I’m done fighting”

According to Tuesday’s blog entry on his website, Quinton Jackson is done fighting. Citing multiple reasons for his “retirement,” mainly betrayal on the part of UFC President Dana White, Jackson claims he is finished with professional mixed martial arts altogether.

Rampage’s first fight in the UFC was against Marvin Eastman at UFC 67 in February 2007. Jackson won via second round knock out. He went on to amass a 5-1 record and win the light heavyweight title under the UFC banner.

Jackson is a coach on the current season of Spike TV’s The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights reality show. Jackson was originally set to fight his opposing TUF 10 coach Rashad Evans in December, but a movie role in an upcoming A-Team movie forced Jackson to postpone the fight. Now it appears the fight will never happen if Jackson follows through with his statements.

Jackson was originally scheduled to fight Rashad Evans, his opposing coach on season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter, at UFC 107 on Dec. 12 in Memphis. It is customary for the coaches of the hit Spike TV reality show to face each other in the Octagon at the culmination of each season.

Apparently Jackson has landed the role of B.A. Baracus in a new A-Team movie and there are scheduling conflicts between filming and the time he would need to train for the fight. Jackson has reportedly asked the fight be moved to early 2010.
