“Absolutely. The fight against Rampage will happen eventually. It’s inevitable and UFC knows it. He won’t retire before fighting me and neither am I.”

When Mauricio “Shogun” Rua first entered into the UFC, one of the most highly anticipated matchups was a rematch between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and himself. However fate has sent the two fighters on different paths and schedules have yet to line up for one of the most compelling rematches in MMA history.

Both fighters have held Pride and UFC straps at one point in their career and a rematch of their 2005 fight is one that would surely draw huge attention.

At “PRIDE Total Elimination” it was Shogun that dispatched Rampage in the first round with a brutal barrage of knees which led to some fight ending soccer kicks to a downed Jackson.

Yes, a rematch has to happen.
