A long-rumored rematch between former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and former PRIDE light heavyweight champion Wanderlei Silva is likely to take place at UFC 93 UFC 94 on January 31st in Las Vegas, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole.
“A very good source told me on Tuesday he expects Jackson and Silva to fight Jan. 31 (Super Bowl weekend) in Las Vegas in UFC 93,” wrote Iole. “Itâ€™s a very fluid situation, but itâ€™s almost certain it wonâ€™t happen in November and itâ€™s very unlikely for December.”
The matchup was expected to be featured as the co-main event alongside Randy Couture vs. Brock Lesnar at UFC 91 in November.
