Rampage Jackson Will Face Shogun Rua In His Last UFC Fight

Before Rampage Jackson leaves the UFC, he’ll at least get the fight he wanted all along — a rematch with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.

Ariel Helwani reported the news on tonight’s edition of UFC Tonight. Additionally, the UFC has agreed to release Rampage from the UFC following the fight in the wake of his latest tirade against the organization.

In short, Rampage should be happy enough with the UFC now. They gave him the fight he always wanted and the clearance to walk away when it’s over.

It’s unclear which event the fight will take place at, but it is expected sometime this summer.
