Rashad Evans vs. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson Likely for UFC 113 in May

Quinton Jackson and Rashad EvansA grudge match between former light heavyweight champions Rashad Evans and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is likely to take place in May, UFC President Dana White announced at Saturday’s post-UFC 108 press conference.

Evans and “Rampage,” opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 10, had been set to settle their feud in December at UFC 107, but Jackson’s role in “The A-Team” and brief retirement put the matchup in jeopardy. However, Jackson’s recently-announced return and Evan’s win over Thiago Silva in the UFC 108 main event have put the bout back on track, and the pair are now expected to square off at UFC 113.

UFC 113 takes place on May 1 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada and is headlined by a rematch between light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida and challenger Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
