"I don't know [if Saturday will be Jackson's last UFC fight], we'll see what happens," White told MMAmania.com at Wednesday's UFC 158 press conference in Montreal. "I mean I got to answer this question the way I answer all ‘Rampage' Jackson questions. You never know where you are with the guy, you know, if you ask me, do I think we've treated ‘Rampage' Jackson well? I think we've been great to ‘Rampage' Jackson. Financially, personally, professionally and every other way you can be cool to a guy."
Jackson is slated to fight Glover Teixeira at the UFC on FOX: Johnson vs Dodson event scheduled for Jan. 26, and he claims it will be his final appearance with the promotion.
"It's one of those deals where me and Lorenzo [Fertitta] love what we do, we love being involved and we love doing great things and growing the sport, making guys more money, doing all the things that we've done over the last 13 years, but at the end of the day, any job you have, I don't care what you do for a living, you have to be happy with what you're doing and be happy with the people you're doing it with," White said. "And if ‘Rampage' isn't happy with us then what are we going to do? The guy needs to go somewhere where the people make him happy."
White also discussed the issue of Jackson's desire to wear Reebok attire to the cage.
"It's no different than any other sponsorship, I mean we work just like every other league works," White said. "You don't just wear whatever you want, you have to have approved sponsors and they're not one, you know? Like I said, maybe ‘Rampage' can go find people that he's happy to work with. He's not happy working with us."
