Following the announcement made at UFC Fight Night 58 that former champion Quinton Rampage Jackson had returned to the UFC, Bellator MMA President Scott Coker said that Bellator would defend their contractual rights (See that HERE). The Tweet made by Coker left many fans wondering if Rampage would be able to fight in the UFC, despite the announcement that he was now under contract.

UFC Managing Director of Internal Development Marshall Zelaznik, who regulated the post-fight press conference, spoke about the potential conflict of contracts, saying:

“I can assure you that if the UFC signed him, the UFC feels optimistic and confident that he’s in a position to be signed. If we expect there’s any issue, I’m sure we’ll figure that out as the days go on.”
