Quinton Rampage Jackson is only 32, but he is already contemplating retirement as soon as Hollywood starts paying him right.
“Honestly, I’ve been known for keeping it real and I have to keep it real. As soon as movies start paying me more than I make to fight, I’m gone. It don’t hurt to make movies. It don’t hurt that bad. Everyday I train. Everyday I’m like, ‘Man, I can’t wait until I get another big movie.’… I don’t have the type of blood Randy Couture has. I give it up to him. I take my hate off to that guy, but I’m not that guy. I don’t plan on fighting until I’m 40. And I’m not Chuck Liddell. I’m not coming to work inside the UFC office when I retire. That’s not me. I’m an entertainer, I like making people laugh. I like doing movies, action moves and stuff like that. I might even try to be a comedian one day, who knows?” [MMA Fight Corner]
I don’t blame Rampage, he has been in the fight game a long time and has experienced the good and bad side of the sport.
