"Rampage's" professional mixed martial arts journey dates back to 1999, spanning numerous promotions and crossing several continents. At 33 years old, and with 40 fights (after tonight) under his belt, the Memphis, Tenn., native has admittedly entered the homestretch of a sparkling career.
Jackson, the only man to unify a UFC and Pride FC division title, has had his ups and his downs throughout this time. He's dished out beatdowns, as well as received his fair share of punishment.
Despite his rocky road, Jackson has always remained near (or at) the top of perhaps the most competitive division (205 pounds) in the entire sport. And he's done so with guts, flare and intrigue every step of the way.
Today, we travel back in time to look at Jackson's best and worst career-defining moments to date as he stands poised to make another run at a world championship ... perhaps his last.
