TMZ caught up with ‘Rampage’ not too long ago and he addressed his future in fight sports activities. When requested whether or not he’s completed preventing, Jackson had this to say.
“No, man. I ain’t completed,” Jackson mentioned. “I’m not proud of my efficiency in my final combat. I can’t depart MMA followers like that.
“I’m going to depart this sport slightly higher,” he continued. “Like I mentioned, I’m in talks with preventing Shannon (Briggs), lastly. That combat has been like nearly a yr within the making. I need to do some boxing earlier than I retire. I’d do MMA, however I need to do boxing. I’m getting up there. I’m 44, man. I’m getting up there. My knees (damage) from wrestling. If you’re doing MMA, lots of people need to take you down. They need to wrestle you.”
Jackson hasn’t competed in something since a particularly lackluster and fast TKO loss to Fedor Emelianenko on Bellator’s Japan card in December 2019. Jackson appeared far faraway from peak bodily situation and was dominated by ‘The Final Emperor. His final win was a reasonably entertaining TKO of arch-rival Wanderlei Silva in 2018.
