Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has started to prepare for his rumored matchup against Wanderlei Silva at UFC 91: Couture vs. Lesnar on November 15th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
According to MMAJunkie.com, Jackson, who lost the 205-pound title to Forrest Griffin in July, has agreed to the matchup, which we first covered earlier this month, and has begun a six-week training camp with UK-based Wolfslair, Jackson’s new team after leaving his previous trainer, Juanito Ibarra, over a reported money dispute.
The UFC has not yet officially announced the fight but is expected to make it official shortly.
UFC 91: Couture vs. Lesnar features the return of UFC heavyweight champion and hall of famer Randy Couture to the octagon to defend his title against Brock Lesnar in the UFC 91 main event. The rumored card for the pay-per-view event also includes Kenny Florian vs. Joe Stevenson, Dustin Hazelett vs. Tamdan McCrory, Nick Catone vs. Amir Sadollah, Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Josh Hendricks, and Jeremy Stephens vs. Rafael dos Anjos.
