03:15 PM ET 02.01 | Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson has finished his contract with the UFC, ending it on a three-fight losing streak. He most recently dropped a unanimous decision to Glover Teixeira at UFC on FOX 6 last Saturday. But before he left, he noted over and over the UFC didn't treat him properly, even going so far as to accuse them of under reporting their pay-per-view sales. These statements didn't sit well with UFC President Dana White who fired back at Jackson at the UFC 156 media day. "Any fighter who has a pay-per-view deal has audit rights," he said. "So if you really thought you were ripped off on pay-per-view, wouldn't you be lawyering up now and coming in with your audit team to come and check the books? Yeah, you would." White went on to say he didn't have personal animosity for Jackson, but seemed to indicate it would be difficult for the two to do business together again. "I've got no beef with Rampage," White continued. "I have no ill will towards him. I'm not out to hurt Rampage or anything like that. He's not happy? Go somewhere else. Go somewhere where you can be made happy."
