Jeremy Rea Jackson (born September 19, 1982) is a convicted rapist and former American mixed martial artist from California. He is known as one of two men (along with K.J. Noons) to have finished Nick Diaz in mixed martial arts competition.

Career

Jackson's first professional MMA fight was on September 9, 2001 against Jake Shields in the Gladiator Challenge 6: Caged Beasts. Jackson has fought in The Ultimate Fighting Championship, Kage Kombat, IFC, King of the Cage, Ultimate Athlete, World Extreme Cagefighting, Gladiator Challenge, Ring Of Honor, and Total Combat. Jeremy Jackson lost to Nick Díaz in UFC 44: Undisputed. He competed as a welterweight on The Ultimate Fighter 4 on Spike TV, but was sent home before having a chance to fight after violating the rules of the show.

Despite being ejected from the tournament, Jackson fought Pete Spratt in the fourth season finale of The Ultimate Fighter. Jackson was submitted in the second round and was released from the UFC.

On June 30, 2008, Jackson was arrested and taken into custody by the Ventura County Sheriff's Office. He was charged with multiple counts of aggravated rape and held on $1 million bail.[1]

Jackson was sentenced 25 years to life after pleading guilty to the rape charges against his lawyer's advice.[2]
