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.

    Why not agree to return and fight out the three remaining fights on his Bellator contract? Instead of settling for 2.

    Do you know the details of the 2 fight settlement? Is he getting paid more than when he originally signed with them?

    Ppl are saying that Bellator is the winner in the Rampage/ Bellator legal battle. No they’re not. They’re big time losers in this. Rampage is the huge winner. He got an amazing deal when he signed with Bellator originally. And a brand new sports car. Plus he got paid extra even tho their first PPV didn’t do over 190k buys.

    Then he illegally signed with the UFC. Got paid by them too. Now he returns to Bellator.

    Wow, you can’t have it any better if you’re Rampage Jackson…

    That would be awesome with the deal was 2 fights with Bellator and 1 fight in Rizin FF.

    What are the 2 fights you wanna see Rampage have in Bellator?

    Fedor vs Rampage? Rampage vs King Mo II? Rampage vs Tito? Rampage vs McGeary? Rampage vs Davis?

    Outta those 5 fights. Which two fights would you like to see?

      Rampage vs. Tito and Fedor makes the most sense in terms of viewership.

        What about Rampage vs Mitrione? That’s if they sign Matt Mitrione.

        I plan to discuss the Rampage situation on tomorrow’s episode of The MMA Report Podcast.
