In another sad turn to Quinton Jackson’s past couple of days, the police have taken the former UFC light heavyweight champion to the hospital for observation. According to reports, the police were called by friends who were with Jackson and felt that he was possibly a danger to, “himself and others.”

It is currently not known if Jackson has been placed on psychiatric hold, but NBCSports.com was able to confirm that Jackson is in the hospital for a mental evaluation.

We want to wish Jackson and his family the best, and we hope that the next update we have will be a positive one.
