Unless he's fighting for money there's no reason to stick around and be a punching bag.
As long as Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva are still around, Quinton Jackson can be as well. None of them will fight for the title again.
Maldonado came out of this looking good. Rampage hit Glover clean on the chin over and over and couldn't hurt him. Maldonado hit him once and almost KO'd him.
I guess it was, because Maldonado caught him by surprise. Those shots you don't see coming are the most dangerous. Against Jackson Teixeira was more cautious and could prepare better for the shots.
