Those ambitions have apparently not left the mind of the former PRIDE and UFC Champion as he discussed his intentions further in a recent media call.
“Before, I was talking about retiring at 35 which is in a couple days. Now, I feel like I got four or five more years in me. I’ve just been rehabbing my knee and lifting weights. I’m thinking about going at heavyweight because I’m older now and I want to stand with the big guys. I want to go out there and entertain the fans. I think the fans forget I’m the first ever unified champion. I did that. I just want to entertain the fans, put on great fights, go into pro wrestling in TNA and show what I can do. I think I’m a natural pro wrestler. I want to kick it with them and put on great shows. I want to entertain all my fans.”
Now signed to Bellator, can Jackson make a run at their heavyweight crown?
