“He talked s*** about me not making weight,” said Jackson on the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani on Monday. “That’s when I decided I was going to leave the UFC.”

“I knew I wasn’t happy with UFC,” he said. “I haven’t been happy for a long time. I did a lot of smart investments, saved my money up, worked on rehabbing my knees. I knew I was going to get out of there. I knew I was going to bounce.”

“I’m in a lot better place,” he said. “It’s hard to explain. When you’re sweating tears and they won’t let you have sponsors, they tax the sponsors, you want to make a movie, “The A-Team,” a lot of people were up for that role, I felt like I was trying to further my career. You can’t fight forever. I took a lot of heat for that. The UFC didn’t see the big picture. Bellator said, ‘We’ll get you movies. We’ll get you sponsors. It’s better for the brand and it’s better for the sport.”‘
