After three long years, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is going to finally get the chance to get his “belt back.”
As expected, the UFC announced today that Rampage Jackson will challenge Jon Jones for his light heavyweight strap on Sept. 24 in Denver, Colorado at UFC 135.
The title fight had been talked about for weeks, but lingering hand injuries with both competitors kept the match-up in question. However, both fighters have since been given medical clearance, paving the way for the fight to happen in September.
Anyone think Rampage will put an end to the “Jones Era” before it even starts?

Correction: I completely mixed up the numbers when I wrote this. It’s UFC 135, not UFC 137. My bad. Must have been thinking about GSP-Diaz when I wrote this.
