Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will be returning to Bellator MMA as the light heavyweight fighter has come to a settlement agreement with the California based mixed martial arts promotion.
The settlement agreement was announced by Bellator in a press release on Tuesday afternoon.
“Following an amicable agreement to settle the litigation between the two parties, the always entertaining and exciting Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson is returning to Bellator,” the statement said. “Bellator MMA is thrilled to have ‘Rampage,’ one of the most recognizable fighters in the history of the sport, joining a very competitive light heavyweight division featuring champion Liam McGeary, Phil Davis, King Mo, Tito Ortiz, Emanuel Newton, Linton Vassell among others.”
Jackson (36-11) left Bellator in late 2014 citing a breach of contract with the promotion. He would end up returning to the UFC and it was announced that he would be fighting at UFC 186. Bellator attempted to stop Jackson from fighting at that event, but ultimately he would face Fabio Maldonado and score a decision victory.
With the announcement of Jackson returning to Bellator, it’s likely that a fight announcement involving the former UFC champion is coming in the very near future.
