If you thought the saga of Quinton Jackson had ended with last week's Twitter barrage, think again.

The former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion took to the popular social media tool Friday night and unleashed more newsworthy thoughts including how the UFC took away his love of fighting and that he wants the organization to release him.

It started Friday afternoon with Jackson answering fans and throwing this gem out there:

It then continued with this Jackson claim:

"@OUnab: @Rampage4real Go Rampage! You're one of the best personality/fighter in mma history, the sport needs u!" @ufc said I lost my appeal

Much more Jackson craziness after the jump including his request that the UFC "just let him go"...

Jackson then retweeted a fan that speculated that losing appeal means that he is being cheated out of money. Later, he would be a bit more straightforward in asking for his release.

Well I'm hoping the @ufc just let me go so I can do my thang,they took my love of fighting after the Forest fight! #bloodtypeBpositive

After some other non-related Tweets, Jackson called it a night but certainly woke up the UFC brass as he continue to accelerate his desire to leave the promotion sooner than later.
