Another matchup between a pair of former UFC light heavyweight champions could be on tap, as UFC President Dana White suggested after Saturday’s UFC 114 that Lyoto Machida and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson could square off next.
“I’m going to get together with Machida in the next couple of days, maybe Rampage,” White said, according to MMA Weekly.
Returning to UFC action for the first time in over a year, Jackson dropped a unanimous decision to former champ Rashad Evans in the UFC 114 headliner, while Machida lost the 205-pound title to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua last month after suffering a first-round knockout in the main event of UFC 113.
Evans will look to reclaim the belt when he squares off against “Shogun” later this year, while the winner of a potential matchup between Machida and Jackson could earn the next title shot.
