Jackson, 39, is 4-1-0 since joining the company off and on in 2013, losing a decision to Muhammad Lawal in his last bout at Bellator 175 in March.
“I am excited for this new beginning and looking forward to an action packed 2018,” Jackson said in a Bellator press release. “I can’t wait to get back in the cage and put on exciting fights for both the ‘Rampage’ and Bellator fans.”
“With ‘Rampage’ Jackson, you know what you’re going to get every time he steps inside the Bellator cage – an exciting fight and interest from fans all over the world,” Bellator President Scott Coker added. “I knew that keeping ‘Rampage’ with Bellator was integral to our continued growth as a promotion, and I’m pleased that we were able to come to an agreement that allows us to plan some great future matchups for him.”
