Rampage Jackson is looking to keep MMA in the family as his son gets set for his MMA debut.
Anyone who was a fan of the UFC or MMA in the early 2000s was most likely a fan of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. He was one of the biggest names in the sport of MMA during the days before social media and YouTube. From 2000-2007 Jackson was making a name for himself in Japan under the Pride banner. He was known for his knockout power and his fierce attitude. He came to the UFC in 2007 and cemented himself among the UFC legends of that era. Now Jackson is looking to pass the torch to his son.
Jackson’s son Raja Jackson will be set to make his MMA debut this coming Saturday, May 13 on the United Fight League 2 card. The news was first reported by Alex Behunim on Twitter.

Jackson took to his Instagram to brag about his son’s upcoming debut. He explained that he has been putting in the hard work for his training camp. He mentioned that his son has been trained by Antonio McKee, father, and trainer of former Bellator featherweight champ AJ McKee.
United Fight League 2 will be taking place in Memphis, TN, the hometown of the Jacksons. Raja Jackson will be taking on Hastings McMillan in a welterweight bout. Jackson is 23 years old and holds an undefeated record so far in his amateur MMA journey. He dons the name Rampage Junior on social media and is following in his father’s footsteps. Dad is very involved in UFL as well and is scheduled to do some Meet and Greet events over the weekend. One of UFL’s proudest features is that they claimed to be the first MMA organization to offer their fighters full coverage of medical care and life insurance.
