UFC Primetime set to return for UFC 114: 'Rampage vs Evans'

The grudge match we've all been waiting for is set to receive the UFC's full arsenal of pre-fight hype and promotional effort as Spike TV today announced that Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and "Suga" Rashad Evans will star in the network's latest UFC Primetime series.

The long anticipated bout between The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 coaches "Rampage" Jackson and Rashad Evans will serve as the headlining contest for UFC 114, which is set to go down on May 29 from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This will be the third UFC Primetime series that Spike TV and the UFC have produced. UFC 94: St. Pierre vs. Penn served as the first effort. GSP was also just recently the focal point of the second installation alongside Dan Hardy for UFC 111: St. Pierre vs. Hardy.

The first of three UFC Primetime: Rampage vs. Evans episodes is slated to premiere on Wednesday, May 12 at 11 p.m. ET following The Ultimate Fighter.
