Quinton "Rampage" Jackson announced his retirement from the UFC shortly after this season of The Ultimate Fighter started airing, saying that he didn't feel like he was portrayed fairly, and fans were hating on his dream of an acting career.

Now, he has apparently decided to come back, after deciding that he was tired of people continuing to talk about him.

"Now, I wanted to let my fans know that I'm going to come back to the UFC & finish my contract. Not because the haters are talking [expletive] about me being scared of Rashad or [Darrill Schoonover] or anybody else. I'm coming back for my fans & to shut Rashad's mouth up & shut Dana's mouth up. Then after that I'm going back to doing movies & I might do a boxing match once a year just to stay in shape. Hate on dis!"

The return of Rampage is, if nothing else, a huge boost to the UFC's light heavyweight division, and it should help the UFC be able to put together another Main Event-caliber fight in 2010.
