We are inching closer and closer to discovering EXACTLY when the highly anticipated light heavyweight scrap between former UFC champs Lyoto Machida and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will go down. While both have Tweeted tidbits of info regarding their tango, no date, location or venue have been assigned.
Machida has assured his fans that he’ll be back just in time for the Holidays.
“For those who are asking. The fight is confirmed to November against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson!” Machida Tweeted.
After being humbled by bitter rival Rashad Evans in his last outing at UFC 114, Rampage was quickly put to work at his part-time gig as the hype man for his summer film The A-Team. Now that B.A. Baracus has fulfilled his international promotional commitments, it’s time to get back in the gym to pay some bills.
Machida lost the light heavyweight crown to reigning champ Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 113. After being handed his first professional blemish, “The Dragon” called upon his old Brazilian buddy Anderson Silva to help him recapture his mojo.
