‘I Think He Might Be Making A Comeback’: Bellator Champ Hints At Quinton Jackson’s Return
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson last fought at Bellator in 2018, but the 43-year-old might be making a return to the sport soon if newly-crowned featherweight champ AJ McKee is right.
In a conversation with MMA journalist James Lynch, McKee claimed that Rampage Jackson may dust off his MMA gloves and train with his father, Antonio McKee, at the Body Shop Fitness.

“I think he might be making a comeback. Everybody comes to Team Bodyshop for that fine tune-up, including Chuck Liddell,” The 145-pound title-holder said. “I think that’s a big accolade to work with Chuck Liddell in his very last fight. That kind of says something about who my father is as a trainer, for Chuck to come and train with us.
“Rampage, we’ve got his son as well, Raja the Clone,” McKee added. “He’s got his first amateur as well coming up next month.”
Rampage Jackson’s last Bellator showdown against Wanderlei Silva ended in a victory. But he lost his last two fights to MMA veteran Chael Sonnen and Muhammad Lawal in January 2018 and March 2017, respectively.
It will be interesting to see who Bellator CEO Scott Coker will choose as Rampage’s opponent in case the rumors of his comeback are true.
