Rampage Jackson vs. Ryan Bader Booked For UFC 144 In Japan

So it looks like Rampage Jackson is going to fight in Japan after all.

But it won’t be against Shogun Rua or even Stephan Bonnar. Instead, Rampage will take on Ryan Bader at UFC 144. Lorenzo Fertitta confirmed the news with ESPN.com.

The UFC has granted Quinton Jackson‘s request to fight in Japan in February.

The former light heavyweight champion will meet Ryan Bader at UFC 144. UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta confirmed the matchup to ESPN.com.

The fight must have come together quick because just the other day Rampage tweeted that he wasn’t fighting in Japan and he wasn’t “happy about it at all.” It seems the UFC took notice and turned Rampage’s frown upside down.

Furthermore, the booking dispels rumors that Rampage Jackson will fight on the UFC on FOX 2 card.
