As if a Machida/Shogun match-up in the upcoming UFC 113 wasn't enough to tidy you over UFC is looking to make the Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans fight happen at UFC 114. 

While nothing is official and no other match-ups have been set-up it would be great to see this fight actually happen and it would further cement the UFC as one of the best fan-centered organizations out there.

As you may recall Quinton "Rampage" Jackson "retired" from the UFC after a slightly tense back and forth between him and Dana White over Jackson's move to film the revived A-Team movie. The filming schedule conflicted with the Evans/Jackson fight originally scheduled for UFC 107. Dana was unwilling to reschedule the match-up basically saying he wished Jackson luck in his new acting career. Just not as nice as that.

White stated back in September 2009 that Rampage, though a grown man, was "acting like a baby."

Jackson said that he was forced into fighting Evans instead of UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida.

"He's a grown man," White said. "He can do whatever he wants to do."
