Lingering Jaw Injury Could Put Machida In With Evans At UFC 98

Now it seems clear as to why Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has yet to accept his main event title shot at UFC 98. Jackson apparently injured his jaw in training, while he was preparing to face Wanderlei Silva back at UFC 92.

The jaw injury was revealed to Dana White when White asked Jackson if he wanted to face Evans at UFC 98 in May. Jackson said that he had “White’s back” but that he wanted to take a few days to discuss matters with his manager.

If Jackson is unable to go due to wanting to take a break with the Jaw injury, then Lyoto Machida will be in the main event against Rashad Evans at UFC 98.
