• Rampage Jackson was criticized after TKO loss to Fedor Emelianenko
  • Some believe Bellator 237: Jackson vs. Emelianenko was fixed
  • Jackson hinted at a huge comeback

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson was hilariously criticized after TKO loss to Fedor Emelianenko at Bellator 237.

It was a night of spectacular MMA fights in Saitama, Japan just over a week ago as Bellator 237 wrapped up the event with a huge TKO win courtesy of Emelianenko. His opponent Jackson on the other hand, became an object of ridicule for “looking more like Hampage” Jackson when he stepped in to the Bellator cage.

The former UFC champ evidently gained a lot of weight coming into the fight and eventually paid the prize for it. Some even accused the said bout was a “fixed fight” because they believe that a veteran fighter like Jackson should know that he must be in his best form in facing one of the best heavyweights in the world.

After the devastating loss, Jackson wrote on social media that he isn’t mad about it and informed his fans that he will return healthier but not in the heavyweight division.

“I knew one of us was going to get knocked out. But I didn’t know it was going to be me. But you know what? I ain’t mad, though. You win some, you lose some. You get paid for all. Y’all remember that. I’ll be back. But I ain’t coming back at heavyweight. I’ve got to lose this weight,” Jackson wrote.

For some reason, “Rampage” deleted the post and replaced it with a message that clarifies he “never does fixed fights.”

”When that bag secured and the ladies waiting back in the room. I’ll never do a fixed fight Fador won fair, I have to get my weight down, that loss was on me,” Jackson wrote.

Jackson has been fighting at Bellator’s heavyweight division since 2016. He has been having troubles with his weight and even went up to 253 pounds when he lost to Chael Sonnen at Bellator 192 in January of 2018.

Last November, the 41-year-old fighter revealed that he is very interested in a pro boxing match before he retires. According to Jackson, he already called for a boxing match prior to the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight.

He is ready to take on anybody in boxing except Deontay Wilder because of huge height disadvantage. Jackson noted that the only reason for him to agree to a fight with Wilder is money.

"Unless they give me $100 mil. Then I'll fight him! I'm not gonna lie, I keep it real!" Jackson emphasized.
