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 “No Comment”.

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 wouldn’t 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 won’t happen but I’m sure Machida will not disappoint. Undefeated Lyoto Machida will step up and challenge for the Light Heavyweight title at UFC 98.

Smart move.

Now he only has to fight Machida instead of potentially having to fight both fighters consecutively...

Machida is the best fighter in the UFC. He uses real karate.. which is self defence. Everyone seems to chase him around the ring and then he counter attacks and... :tombstone:.

Ugo Ferst 03-17-2009 03:21 AM

real karate? his form of karate is very offensive, it's called Shotokan but that doesnt make it any more real then other forms. But it is the only form that anybody has had success with in MMA with at a high level. Very evasive but definately not just for self defense by any means.
