Default Silva vs. Jackson set for UFC 92

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs Wanderlei Silva 3 set for ufc 92
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson (28-7) and former Pride FC middleweight champion Wanderlei Silva (32-8-1) will collide at UFC 92 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on December 27.

The blockbuster light heavyweight match up was first discussed for the UFC 91: “Couture vs. Lesnar” show on November 15 and then the UFC 93 Super Bowl weekend event on January 31. Those dates did not work out, however, and the bout is now slated to enhance the New Year’s Eve weekend mixed martial arts bonanza.

“The Axe Murderer” and “Rampage” of course share quite a bit of history, fighting twice overseas in Japan under the Pride FC banner. Silva was victorious on both occasions and in rather convincing fashion — the fights ended with brutal knockouts.

Since that time, Jackson has indicated that he was not necessarily competing on a level playing field. He and/or his handlers have hinted at everything from unchecked steroid use to crooked officiating. One thing is for certain — Jackson is now a much improved fighter who is dedicated to training with partners who can elevate his game.

That was something that he was clearly missing in “The Land of the Rising Sun.” And now he gets to prove that with the right approach — and under strict supervision of a regulated sanctioning body — he can exact revenge once and for all.

Silva’s last appearance was an absolute mauling of “The Dean of Mean” Keith Jardine at UFC 84: “Ill Will” back in May. He definitely looked like the “Axe Murderer” of old with a quick and vicious knockout. For “Rampage,” this will mark his first fight after his highly publicized run-ins with the law and his subsequent split with long-time trainer, Juanito Ibarra.

He will also look to bounce back from his controversial unanimous decision loss to Forrest Griffin at UFC 86: “Jackson vs. Griffin” in July, which cost him his 205-pound title.

This is definitely a huge fight that the hardcore fans have been dreaming about — Silva and Jackson have an epic feud and a real distaste for one another. This should definitely be another instant classic.

UFC 92 features the main event between current coaches of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 8, interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira and Frank Mir.

i don't understand the need for a 3rd fight, the first two were pretty decisive. a rematch between Page & Shogun makes more sense to me

I think they'll be looking for a easier first fight back for Shogun. Then you have Wandy with his impressive showings of late and the fact Jackson is just a former UFC Lt. Heavy Champ.

Rampage didn't do too bad the second time. The last couple minutes of the fight he got demolished.

Either way I don't like how this article is written, it makes Japanese MMA sound like it's a lawless ring full of barbarians.

The allowance of kicks to a downed opponent (especially in the facial area) is why it is coming off that way. Personally I loved Pride rules but like the Octagon better. If only they could've done more then 2 cross promotion deals of sorts, DSE might still have kept Pride around.
