From the rape video “Rampage” hoped would get him released from the UFC to his feelings of being underappreciated and disrespected in the fallout of UFC 144 earlier this year and a reportedly declined Reebok sponsorship, Jackson has made it very, very clear that he is done fighting in the Octagon after his scheduled bout this Saturday night (Jan. 26, 2013) against Glover Teixeira at UFC on FOX 6: “Johnson vs. Dodson.”
While Jackson has repeatedly claimed mistreatment, White disagrees. In fact, the UFC’s head honcho believes his company has been very helpful to “Rampage” over the course of his nearly six-year stint under the UFC banner.
“I don’t know [if Saturday will be Jackson’s last UFC fight], we’ll see what happens,” White told MMAmania.com at Wednesday’s UFC 158 press conference (watch it in full here) in Montreal. “I mean I got to answer this question the way I answer all ‘Rampage’ Jackson questions. You never know where you are with the guy, you know, if you ask me, do I think we’ve treated ‘Rampage’ Jackson well? I think we’ve been great to ‘Rampage’ Jackson. Financially, personally, professionally and every other way you can be cool to a guy.”
