As the internationally renowned mixed martial artist, star of Japan's Pride Fighting Championships, and Ultimate Fight Championship (UFC) Light-Heavyweight title holder, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson was already a beloved performer in his particular pursuits when he ventured into the low-budget action world as an actor in films like "Confessions of a Pit Fighter" (2005) and the gore-friendly thriller "The Midnight Meat Train" (2008). He amassed multiple performances with fellow fighter and writer-director Hector Echavarria in movies that included "Never Surrender" (2009) and "Death Warrior" (2009). Out of the ring and into big budget film, Jackson became best known for his role as B.A. Baracus in the high-octane remake of "The A-Team" (2010), opposite Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper. With natural charisma and elevated showmanship, Jackson beat many out for the coveted role, fighting his way to stardom outside the fight arena. As an actor, Jackson maintained the super-human strength and brawn that made him king to legions of extreme fighting fans, but used it to conquer new ones in Hollywood.
