It’s not an immediate release like he has been campaigning for, but the UFC has agreed to release “Rampage” Jackson after his last contracted bout.
To send off the former champion will be none other than fellow former champ, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
The two have reportedly agreed to square off at a yet to be determined event as announced just moments ago on “UFC Tonight” on FUEL TV.
Rampage and Shogun have a history. They already fought once back in 2005 at Pride Total Elimination 2005. In the first bout it was Shogun who won via TKO in the first frame of action.
Both former champions are coming off of losses. Rampage to Bader and Shogun to Dan Henderson.
As soon as a date and venue are announced we will update this story.
