Video: Rampage Jackson training for Glover Teixeira fight at UFC 153 in Brazil

Quinton Jackson is poised to make his final appearance for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) when he takes on top division prospect Glover Teixeira at the upcoming UFC 153 pay-per-view (PPV) event, currently scheduled for Oct. 13, 2012 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

It will be the first (and perhaps last) fight for "Rampage" in Brazil.

Jackson (32-10) was originally prepped for a PRIDE rematch against Mauricio Rua, but opted out of the "Shogun" fight to have knee surgery in hopes of correcting nagging injuries that have plagued him in recent years. He's also coming off back-to-back losses for the first time in his career, having been finished by Jon Jones at UFC 135 before Ryan Bader outpointed him at UFC 144.

Not that he looks too concerned in this video.

Teixeira (18-2) finally made his Octagon debut at UFC 146: "Dos Santos vs. Mir" at the MGM Grand Garden Arena earlier this year in Las Vegas, Nevada, showing stateside fans what all the hype was about by choking out the venerable Kyle Kingsbury en route to a first round submission stoppage.

The win over "Kingsbu" marked 16 straight for the Brazilian, who has 16 finishes (including 11 knockouts) over his illustrious career. A victory over Jackson would no doubt springboard him to bigger and better opportunities within the division.

Who gets KTFO in this battle of hard-hitting sluggers?
