UFC President, Dana White has revealed the UFC might be looking to make a match between former UFC Light Heavyweight champions, Lyoto Machida and Quinton “Rampage Jackson together for a huge mega-fight later in the year.
Speaking at UFC 114, Dana said:
“I’m going to get together with Machida in the next couple of days, maybe Rampage.”
Both fighters are coming off of big losses inside the octagon. Machida lost in the first round to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, not only losing his Light Heavyweight championship, but the loss was also his first loss in his professional career.
"Rampage" lost to his rival, Rashad Evans this past Saturday at UFC 114. "Rampage" is determined to get back into the octagon as soon as possible to shake off the ring-rust he showed in his fight with Evans this past Saturday.
A fight between the two would be very interesting, but also could be risky. A win for either man would put them back into title contention, but a loss would give either man a second straight loss and shoot them down the ladder in the Light Heavyweight division.
