UFC 186: Rampage Jackson Cleared To Fight

ufc 186

He’s back.


Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will make his return to the Octagon this Saturday night at UFC 186, as a New Jersey court reversed its decision.

Jackson will meet Fabio Maldonado in a 215-pound catchweight on pay-per-view from the Bell Centre in Montreal.

“We are happy with the decision from the New Jersey court allowing ‘Rampage’ to fight in Montreal this Saturday night,” UFC president Dana White said. “I am looking forward to seeing ‘Rampage’ back in the Octagon.”

Steve Bosse, who had been tabbed as a replacement for Jackson, will receive his show money but will not be competing at the event.

It's time to pay some bills! The fight is back on boyz! April 25th UFC186!!
