Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, who was arrested Tuesday in Costa Mesa, Calif., after a series of collisions involving his pickup truck, posted his $25,000 overnight bail and has been released.
Jackson was booked into Orange County Jail for felony evading, hit-and-run and reckless driving, According to Lt. Paul Dondero.
Rampage, who relinquished his UFC belt on July 5 by unanimous decision to Forrest Griffin, plowed his 2008 Ford F-250, complete with his image emblazoned on rear driver- and passenger-side doors, into multiple cars along Highway 55.
THE SAME DAY....
UFC president Dana White flew to Orange County upon learning of the arrest and said he was driving to the county jail to post bail for Jackson.
The UFC Steps up and says....
White said Jackson is still in a hospital undergoing a psychological examination.
“He’s alright,” White said. “When the thing happened it made no sense to me at all.”
Then: “I don’t know what he’s going through right now. He’s a friend of mine. He’s a good guy.”
I'm done fighting..
The UFC has done a lot for me but I think I have done more for them. The UFC bought WFA to get my contract & they saved my life, so I felt loyal to them.
"but they blow wanting me to fight all these people... blah blah blah.."
I still feel the UFC is a great organization and I felt like I was very loyal to them but they didn't respect my loyalty but I wish the UFC the best. I did a lot of things for them. I wish no bad blood between us but I have kids & a family back in Memphis to provide for & thats all that matters to me!
And Quinton is ashamed???
Great points. Ironic, isn't it?
