On Jan. 26 former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson fights Glover Teixeira, and plans to leave the UFC.

"I've given [UFC] time to keep me happy," said Jackson. "Honestly, I think the UFC is happy with me leaving. It's a mutual thing."

Competing in smaller MMA promotions is possible, but Jackson has a grander scheme -- taking his knockout skills to the boxing ring.

He won't have to worry about anyone taking him to the ground in a boxing match, and Jackson gets to throw as many punches as he wants.

"I've put my time in. I did my thing," Jackson said. "I just want to entertain people. I want to be very exciting. Maybe I want to try some boxing or do some kickboxing. I’ve done jiu-jitsu tournaments, wrestling tournaments, kickboxing fights -- but never boxing. I think that would be my biggest challenge -- to see if I can be a pro boxer.

Jackson noted that former street fighter-turned-mixed martial artist Kimbo Slice has also made the switch to boxing.

One promoter has already expressed interest.

"Absolutely, I'd be interested in taking a look at him," Top Rank vice president of boxing operations Carl Moretti told ESPN.com. "I'm sure he's a well-conditioned athlete, but boxing's a different game. I'd like to see him in the gym sparring, just to see how he does against professionals before going ahead and just throwing him in a fight.

All he complains about is people wrestling him.. don't know why he didn't consider jumping ship a long time ago.

Yah, I remember when he fought Vanderlei and Igor V in Pride. I don't remember him complaining about them not wanting to fight him on his feet.

News flash, Rampage. In MMA your hands are impressive. In boxing they are ordinary and your conditioning isn't good enough to go anywhere close to 12 rounds.

Kind of the same thing that every single person from all those SF fighter camps said. They all managed to avoid that last fight. But, none of them pulled out... They all just got injured, conveniently.

"Maybe I want to try some boxing or do some kickboxing"

lol

I used to love Rampage but the idea of him doing either of these things, particularly kickboxing, is pretty fucking funny.

I know he's done kickboxing before but that was almost 11 years ago. Nowadays, he's so immobile and so unwilling to mix up his standup that the idea of him getting back into it now is ridiculous to me.

No, I remember the fights, I thought it was clear that there was a fairly big difference between 2002 and 2013.

I don't think he will do very well in boxing.
