Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua: Likely Fighting ‘Rampage’ Jackson In December

It’s unnecessary to watch after the 50 second mark.

Shogun Rua through his translator:

“Most likely right now it’s looking like it’s Quinton Jackson.”

This is actually quite surprising. With the Mark Coleman rumors, I thought the UFC was going to throw Shogun a bit of a softball for his first fight back from two knee surgeries. Also figured if they were going to put Rampage in the ring with one of the guys who’s dismantled him before, it would be Wandy. Guess not. It’s a huge fight if it happens.

CR: for the find

Shogun vs Rampage I after the jump for those who haven’t seen it.
