Jackson Joins New Fight Team

After the much publicised split with now-former trainer Juanito Ibarra, UFC light heavyweight Quinton Jackson has signed a new contract with the Wolfslair fight team, based out of England, according to Fighters Only; the team is home to such MMA fighters such as Michael Bisping and Paul Kelly.  According to Jackson,

“Those guys got it together. Michael Bisping took to me like a brother from the first time I met him. He and [Paul] Anthony were very hospitable towards me when I first came to the UK. I feel like Wolfslair can make me go farther than I have been; I’m really excited about being able to travel there to train. The guys on the team, they like to laugh and joke around but they train hard and that’s me, that’s what I like to do. What better team to join than one called Wolfslair? I’m a werewolf. It was my destiny. People don’t understand destiny but I do. Wolfslair is the most perfect team for me.”

Wolfslair is actively seeking a fight for Jackson so it is entirely possible that the November UFC event in Portland, OR could be a possibility, but nothing is etched in stone as of this writing.  Speaking of Ibarra, he resigned as Jackson’s manager but is still involved, working on other Jackson projects.
