I guess the UFC has found their main event, Rashad vs Rampage for February or if he loses I assume Machida or Shogun maybe?? When is Thiago Silva back??

Though Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has a monumental task in front of him in the form of his fight against UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones at UFC 135, the challenge at hand hasn’t prevented the 205-pounder from looking past the September 24 show and towards an event in 2012. In fact, you might even call it a homecoming of sorts.

Jackson opened up about his desire to fight on February 26 when the UFC returns to Japan after ten years away from the Land of the Rising Sun during recent conversation with MMAWeekly.

“I love Japanese fans, they know how to respect a fighter and they know what’s up. Win or lose this fight I would like to be on the Japan show,” the 33-year old explained. “I love Japan (and) I miss the Japanese fans. I would love to go and put a show on in front of them.”

“Rampage” rose to stardom in large part due a number of exciting past performances under the PRIDE banner including wins over Kevin Randleman and Chuck Liddell, as well as a bout against Ricardo Arona featuring one of MMA’s all-time highlights when Jackson put the Brazilian away with a Powerb0mb Slam. His run in famed Japanese organization also introduced fans to Jackson’s colorful personality and antics.

The former 205-pound title-holder is one of a number of UFC fighters who have openly expressed their hopes of scrapping in Saitama including Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Yoshihiro Akiyama.

I have to admit while I feel Jones is going to brutalize him, he seems to be taking this very serious

But he's so sloooooooow compared to Bones. In this fight Jones will play the part of Rampage and Rampage the part of a female reporters leg.

I think Jones is going to maul him but I have to say that I am more excited for this fight than previously strictly due to Rampage being in serious mode and not just joking around
