SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- Viacom invested quite a bit in Quinton Jackson when it signed the MMA standout to a multi-tiered contract two years ago. "Rampage" was promoted hard by Bellator and also made appearances on TNA Impact pro wrestling, which was on Spike TV at the time. Last month, though, Jackson surprisingly announced that he had re-signed with the UFC, which drew many questions. Wasn't he still under contract with Viacom and Bellator? Bellator MMA president Scott Coker said that indeed is read news >>

Heck, even pulling in a third of those ratings would be a huge score for the boys at Viacom. With that in mind, read news >>
