Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has detailed where things went south between himself and Pride Fighting Championships.

Jackson was one of the biggest foreign stars in Pride FC, a defunct Japanese MMA promotion. Despite his popularity, “Rampage” wasn’t exactly feeling the love or appreciation from the company. In fact, “Rampage” claims he was greatly underpaid, which led to some issues between the two sides.

Quinton Jackson Talks Being Underpaid In Pride FC

During a recent episode of the “Jaxxon Podcast,” Quinton Jackson revealed his surprisingly low salary under the once-renowned Pride FC promotion.

“Back in Pride, them motherf*ckers were making like $200,000, $300,000 cash money,” Jackson said. “They would pay me $30,000, bro, and I was their biggest star from America besides like Kevin Randleman and Mark Coleman.”

Offered To Take A Dive Against Kazushi Sakuraba

“Rampage” went on to say that he knew things were going south, so he opened up about his displeasure publicly. He even claimed that he was offered to throw a fight against Kazushi Sakuraba.

“They got even madder at me, they didn’t put me in the first video game,” Jackson said. “All this sh*t happened, so I didn’t feel no loyalty to them. So, I kind of started talking. I started saying too much, I learned my lesson, I’ll never do it again. I talked about how when I fought Sakuraba how they offered me $1,000 more to take a dive.”

Jackson says that to this day, there is some bitterness that lingers over his falling out with Pride FC. “Rampage” says when he went to a Rizin FF event, he had to buy his own tickets and he was nowhere near the front row. Rizin FF president Nobuyuki Sakakibara was also the Pride FC president.
