Shogun Rua and Rampage Jackson at Pride Grand Prix 2005
Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson will get his wish to leave the UFC, but not without one more fight, and it’s a big rematch.

According to UFC President Dana White via UFC Tonight, they will honor Jackson’s wishes to leave the promotion after he honors the final fight on his contract.

That fight will come later this year against old rival from Pride, Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua.

Jackson has been on the rampage ever since his loss to Ryan Bader at UFC 144 via his Twitter account and then through an interview with Bas Rutten on HDNet’s Inside MMA, where he complained about the matchmaking of Joe Silva as well as the UFC taking away his love of fighting.

He made a lot of noise about exiting the UFC, and after one more fight, his wish will be granted.

Facing Rampage in his final UFC fight will be Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua, who looks to get back on track after his UFC 139 loss to Dan Henderson.

Rua holds a win over Rampage from a fight in 2005 in Pride Fighting Championships when the Brazilian finished the fight with a series of soccer kicks after a punishing performance.

There’s been no date set for Rua vs. Rampage 2, but it’s expected to take place this summer.
