Looks like there’s another big fight to add to UFC 130. MMA Junkie is reporting that Rampage Jackson will meet Thiago Silva on the Memorial Day Weekend card.
Fresh off a dominating win over Brandon Vera at UFC 125, light heavyweight Thiago Silva (15-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) next will fight former champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (31-8 MMA, 6-2 UFC) in a UFC 130 bout expected to have a major impact on the title picture.
Sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) verbal agreements are in place for the fight.
Should be a heck of a fight. I don’t think Rampage will let Silva slap him around like Brandon Vera did.
If early reports pan out, UFC 130 is going to be a great card.
