Rampage versus Shogun delayed

+Read full article

Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson’s highly anticipated final match inside the UFC Octagon versus Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua is a dream postponed for fight fans.

Recently the UFC announced that Jackson (32-10 MMA, 7-4 UFC) and Rua  (20-6 MMA, 4-4 UFC) would reignite a long standing feud that stems from their period in Pride.

The two first met in 2005 in Japan at PRIDE Total Elimination 2005, where Rua dominated the match with his deadly kicks. Jackson was finished pretty quickly. It was Rua’s coming out party. He won the tournament against apparent insurmountable odds.

The pair was expected to meet again this summer but Jackson’s knees have again become a problem.

In a tweet to his fans Jackson said [blackbirdpie url=”https://twitter.com/#!/Rampage4real/status/180354406838054912″]

The UFC officials has not yet confirmed the announcement.

Jackson has long since wanted this rematch.

This is Jackson’s last fight under his current UFC contract, and with his widespread disagreements about UFC leadership, it is expected that Rampage will take his talents elsewhere.

Fans have seen many postponed fights never happen or be delayed for long periods. Just ask another Jackson rival and perennial number one contender, Rashad Evans. His proposed fight with Jon Jones was pushed back through several injuries and tribulations.

Hopefully this is only a small setback for the enigmatic Jackson.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.
