Rampage Jackson has fired shots at the UFC, claiming he’ll never step in the octagon and fight for Dana White ever again! Rampage feels as though the organization has treated him like a ‘chump,’ and because of that he will be taking his talents elsewhere.

But Dana White, President of the UFC, claims Rampage doesn’t really have a choice…because the UFC doesn’t want him back!

Rampage was leaving AV Nightclub in L.A. Monday night when TMZ asked him about rumors that he was retiring from professional fighting … in the wake of Saturday’s brutal loss to UFC fighter Glover Teixeira.

“I didn’t retire from MMA, ” Rampage said … adding, “But as of now … I’ve left the UFC.”

He continued … “The UFC didn’t treat me right. I don’t like the way I was treated there.”

So what exactly is it that pissed him off? Rampage claims he is still owed a significant amount of money from the organization, and he feels betrayed over a deal involving Rampage action figures.

Jackson says he hopes to sign with a rival MMA company, but contractually, Rampage is obligated to wait a month before he can sign a new deal.

TMZ had the opportunity to speak with Dana White — who fired some shots back at the disgraced fighter, “Rampage didn’t quit. He lost his last 3 fights and his contract is up. Do you see me beating his door down to get him back?”

White continued, “Since 2007, Rampage has made $15 million with the UFC. Ask him how much he made from the ‘A-Team’ when I let him go film it.”

Dana also tells us Rampage has always had the option to audit the UFC books and find out exactly how much cash the org. made on his fights — but Rampage never took him up on the offer!
