Former light heavyweight title-holder Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will have an opportunity to reclaim the title in August or September, according to Fighters Only.

According to the report, which cites an industry source, Rampage will take on the winner of UFC 98’s headliner between current champion Rashad Evans and Lyoto Machida at UFC 102 on August 29th in Portland, Oregon or at UFC 103 on September 26th in the UK.

Jackson was originally offered a fight against Evans that would have headlined UFC 98, but declined to the quick turnaround required following his March victory over Keith Jardine at UFC 96. Evans will instead take on Machida in the May 23rd main event and Jackson will then meet the winner later this year.
