Quinton "Rampage" Jackson recently left the UFC recently and signed a deal with Bellator. His first fight under his new contract looks like it will be a memorable one.
MMA Junkie is reporting that Bellator is expected to announce a boxing match between Jackson and Roy Jones Jr.
"We've been talking to Roy and his people over a potential 'Rampage' vs. Roy fight for over seven months," a representative from Jackson's longtime team, Wolfslair MMA, told MMAjunkie.com.
Jackson is 32-11 (14 KO's) in his mixed martial arts career. He's never fought in a professional boxing match.
Jones is 56-8 (40 KOs) in his boxing career. He was once considered the pound-for-pound best boxer in the world, but over the last several years he's suffered a few losses, including some devastating knockouts.
Despite Jones' diminished skills the fight is expected to be a big draw given the fact that both fighters are very well known in their respective sports.
An exact date hasn't been announced, but the bout is expected to be held on the same date as the UFC's year end event.
