Rampage Jackson, Up Next for a Light Heavyweight Title Match
"There are so many guys at 205. Rampage is probably next in line. Rampage is still in the mix." ---Dana White, UFC President
UFC President, Dana White, revealed that Quinton Rampage Jackson is likely to have a shot at the light heavyweight title. That is, if he beats Thiago Silva at UFC 130. Though Rampage Jackson’s clash against Thiago Silva is not yet official, sources claim that the deal is already slated.
With Ryan Bader set to face Jon Jones at UFC 126, the current 205lbs title picture is getting hot. However, whoever wins between Ryan Bader and Jon Jones is likely to be given one more shot before getting a chance for the belt. That being said, Rampage Jackson is on course for a rematch with either Rashad Evans or Mauricio Shogun Rua.
And just like how Dana White said it: “There’s so many great guys in the 205lbs division. The big problem has been Shogun’s injury clogging up the division. Now he’s healthy and going to fight, and we’ll get everything rolling.”View Article Source »
