UFC Light Heavyweight Quinton Rampage Jackson

It appears Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (Pictured) is about to expand his horizons. The former UFC light heavyweight champion is in the middle of working on several projects, one of which is rapping.

“Up early! Gonna down load some of my own new music on my phone, so I can hit the run easy, staying n great shape no matter what! Gym time!!” Rampage tweeted Monday morning. “I’m about 2 do a deal n Japan, so after that ill let my best songs go, bad 1snoway.”

Wait up. So in addition to working armbars, you’re also spitting 16 bars?

“yep, n video games, n writing movies dude, I wanna keep yall entertained even when I’m 2 old 2 fight,” he added.

While the 33-year-old will be moonlighting in other avenues, he wanted to set the record straight regarding his day job. The veteran feels he has been disrespected by the UFC, despite the fact be believes he’s always been the consummate team player.

“I’m upset cause I’ve been fighting hurt 4 a few years now, cause I have kids n 4yall,” Rampage wrote. “The @ufc knew I was hurt, n almost every fight I was hurt n, but instead of saying thanks 4 not pulling out, they talk [expletive] about a poor job I did, I never missed weight, but when I do, nobody stop 4 a second 2 ask if I was hurt, yall just quick 2 talk [expletive], so I’m done with them.

“I’m not complaining about money, cause I’m about 2 make a lot less money now, but at least the people I fight 4 will appreciate what I do4mma. I have 1 more fight on my contract n @danawhite said n a text (that I’ve saved) hahaha that I can go after my last fight.”

Rampage recently professed he would be done with the UFC following his next scrap.
