UFC 153: Rampage Jackson Lands Glover Teixeira for His Final UFC Fight
The Quinton "Rampage" Jackson drama with the UFC will soon be coming to an end.
Not too long after it was announced Shogun Rua had turned down a fight with Glover Teixeira, Teixeira has been tagged as Rampage's likely final UFC opponent.
Rampage is coming off back-to-back losses for the first time in his MMA career at the hands of UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones at UFC 135 and Ryan Bader at UFC 144. Jackson was briefly linked to a match-up with Shogun, but decided to have surgery on both his knees.
To many, Teixeira might seem like a newcomer, but the powerful Brazilian light heavyweight has been on the worldwide MMA scene since 2002. He made his highly anticipated UFC debut at UFC 146 in May with a very impressive first round submission victory over Kyle Kingsbury.
Rampage stated following his loss to Bader that he wants to be released from the UFC, but instead Jackson opted to finish out his current contract and fight once more for the company.
Who knows if Rampage will hold true to his word and leave the UFC following the fight, but either way, this fight will not be an easy one as Teixeira is riding a nice 16-fight winning streak and will be fighting in his home country of Brazil.
