During a chance meeting at UFC 110 in Australia, former UFC light heavyweight champions Rashad Evans and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson happened to run into each other and continue their rivalry.

Jackson was in Michael Bisping’s corner for his fight with Wanderlei Silva while Evans was there to support Keith Jardine.

“I felt like I ran into a long lost brother man (laughing). I haven’t seen him in so long, we just picked up right where we left off. We got some unresolved issues and it was very evident when I seen him in Australia,” Evans told FightHype . “He wasn’t at a loss for words and I definitely wasn’t either. He had a lot to get off of his chest and I did as well, so we just let each other know about it for a minute.”

By picking up where they had left off from “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights,” Evans meant with the trash talking. He wasted no time with poking fan at “Rampage’s” weight.

“He’s in the UK right now training. He’s doing a Forrest camp, so that’s how fat he is. Rampage gotta get in shape just to get in shape. He’s in rough shape right now. He’s been sitting on the set for a while, in the trailer, waiting to do scenes and getting served food and everything else,” Evans commented.

Evans did take the time to get serious a little bit in talking about how he’s approaching his UFC 114 bout with Jackson.

“I think Rampage is ready to throw a curveball. I think it’s time for him to implement something else into his gameplan. He’s had some time off, so I know he’s going to want to come out and be impressive. I think he’s going to do something differently and try to throw me off. I wouldn’t be surprised if you saw a little bit of the Rampage of old and he tries to go for one of his big slams,” Evans explained.

Either way, I don’t think we’re going to see a boring fight out of the two. If the trash talking was any indication of how the fight will go, we’re all going to be in for a treat come May 29th.
