Quinton “Rampage” Jackson took to twitter on Sunday to accept Glover Teixeira’s challenge. Teixeira asked to fight Jackson after completely dismantling Fabio Maldonado on last night’s fight card. The two were originally supposed to meet at UFC 153 before Jackson suffered an injury and was forced off the card.
After the one-sided Maldonado fight, Teixeira requested a fight with Jackson, maintaining he is not talking trash but just wants to fight one of his MMA idols.

This bout should be an easy booking for the UFC depending on “Rampage’s” injury status.
[Update 16:24hrs] UFC President Dana White has responded to Jackson’s request and is clearly on board with the idea.
@rampage4real sounds good bro
