UFC 130: Dana White announces Rampage Jackson will get a title shot with a win over Matt Hamill


Bring out your chains!

In the closing seconds of the UFC 130 prelims on Spike TV, UFC president announced that if Quinton Jackson was to secure a victory over Matt Hamill tonight (May 28,2011) in the main event of UFC 130: "Rampage vs. Hamill."

To quote White directly...

Rampage Jackson will get the next title shot against Jon Jones if he can win tonight and come out healthy.

Jackson may not have had the most motivation to fight Hamill originally, but look for him to come out a new man tonight knowing that he's one impressive performance away from an opportunity reclaim his title.

Who's ready for some more black on black crime?

Rampage originally lost his title to Forrest Griffin and his quest for a championship was sidetracked by Rashad Evans at UFC 114 when he lost an uninspired decision to the wrestling-minded Evans.

Jackson got back on track against "The Dragon" Lyoto Machida at UFC 123, winning a very close decision while looking light on his feet while pressing the action.

With former number one contender Rashad Evans locked up in a fight with Phil Davis, Jackson has a tremendous opportunity to slide in and take his title shot out from under him.

What do you think, Maniacs? Is the potential title shot for "Rampage" intriguing?
