Police received a report of an accident on the 55 Freeway near 19th Street in Costa Mesa involving a large pickup truck that had struck other vehicles and fled the scene, Dondero said.
A Costa Mesa officer spotted the pickup getting involved in another collision and fleeing toward Newport Beach. The pickup, which had a tire disabled in the collisions, was pulled over in Newport Beach and Jackson was taken into custody without incident, Dondero said.
There were no injuries involved in the various collisions, he said.
Jackson, 30, who lives in Irvine, was upset by Forrest Griffin at UFC 86 earlier this month in Las Vegas.
UFC spokeswoman Jennifer Wenk in Las Vegas said UFC officials were aware of Jackson's arrest and had no comment.

I'm not surprised Orange County is full of cops you can't get away with hit and run in that area.
