Quinton Jackson talks with Fighters Only, and it sounds like retirement is on his brain. Only theoretical what-if alternate dimension retirement, but still.
“Believe me I still want to retire as champion. I want to hold the belt once more. I guess if I had won that Jon Jones fight and if the Japan show wasn’t next then there’d have been a very good chance I would have retired already. It would have been a great time to bow out. But I almost certainly would have stayed around to fight in Japan anyway, to defend the belt. Then if I would have successfully defended it on this [UFC 144] show, I definitely would be retiring – and retiring a very happy man too!”
Even in Rampage’s perfect imaginary world, he’s still retiring. Fortunately for us fans he has expensive tastes that should keep him fighting for years to come or until his Hollywood career takes off. So years to come.
