Default Rampage pulls out of UFC

machida vs evans instead

Earlier today ATO caught up with someone close to Rampage and asked him if Rampage accepted the fight with Evans. We were told ďNo CommentĒ.

But it seems Rampage is going to sit this one out according to a Sun report. He will however, be the #1 contender and face the winner later this year.

A hand and jaw injury will keep the former champ out of the fight with Rashad Evans. Taking the fight eleven weeks out just wouldnít give Jackson enough time off to heal the injuries.

After the main event at UFC 96 the crowd was treated to an impromptu jawing match between Evans and Jackson that left the crowd wanting more. Too bad the fight wonít happen but Iím sure Machida will not disappoint. Undefeated Lyoto Machida will step up and challenge for the Light Heavyweight title at UFC 98.
