Brash light heavyweight Quinton Jackson, whose promotional contract was recently purchased by Zuffa, signed a two-fight deal with the UFC on Friday, Sherdog.com has learned.

“Rampage” will make his UFC debut Feb. 3 on pay-per-view versus Las Vegan Marvin Eastman, Jackson's manager and trainer Juanito Ibarra confirmed Friday evening.

Jackson's deal, which runs through July 2007, reads similar to the one he signed with the World Fighting Alliance in March, including bonuses for pay-per-view and other ancillary items not normally associated with UFC deals.
