Jeremy Jackson, Former TUF Contestant, Sentenced on Rape Charges

Jeremy Jackson, a season four contestant on The Ultimate Fighter, was sentenced Monday to 25 years to life in prison, reports the Ventura County Star.

Jackson entered a guilty plea last December, admitting to raping his ex-girlfriend in June 2008. Jackson, 28, was facing a maximum sentence of 60 years to life.

Jackson (10-5) made his MMA debut in Sept. 2001 against Jake Shields. In 2003, Jackson made his UFC debut in a losing effort against Nick Diaz. He returned in 2006 as a contestant on the comeback season of The Ultimate Fighter, but was kicked off the show in the fourth episode for leaving the house to meet a girl. He fought once more in the UFC at the TUF 4 Finale, losing to Pete Spratt.

Jackson's last fight was a TKO win for the California Total Combat promotion in 2007. Jackson was arrested on June 30, 2008 and has been incarcerated ever since.
