Jason Jackson wants to clean out Bellator and PFL before hopefully moving to the UFC

0

Jason Jackson wants to prove that he is the best welterweight in any organization.

Jackson (18-4 MMA, 8-1 BMMA) will defend his welterweight title against Ramazan Kuramagomedov (12-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) in the main event of the Bellator Champions Series: Dublin on June 22 at the 3Arena in Dublin.

The Ultimate Fighter alumnus is enjoying his best run of his career, having eight straight wins – including back-to-back victories over Yaroslav Amosov and Ray Cooper III. However, Jackson still feels like he doesn't get the recognition he deserves.

“I just feel like they still doubt me because I haven't been at the UFC level to really make it look as easy as I'm making it look now,” Jackson told MMA Junkie Radio. “I've beaten former UFC champions and UFC competitors and challengers, so once I get there, they're going to realize they underestimated me.”

With PFL recently taking over Bellator and its future uncertain, Jackson hopes to eventually make it into the Octagon and stake his claim as the No. 1 welterweight contender.

“I think I'm going to clean out Bellator and PFL until they say, 'Man, we need to let this guy go so he can do something else and continue to build his legacy,'” Jackson said. “And I want to go to the UFC and become champion there and clean out the division as well before I retire.”
