Quinton Rampage Jackson vs Wanderlei Silva 3 UFC 91 fight likely

Sources close to Wanderlei Silva (32-8-1) have indicated that the explosive (and long-rumored) third showdown between “The Axe Murderer” and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (28-7) is indeed set, according to MMACanada.net.

The blockbuster light heavyweight match up will co-headline UFC 91: “Couture vs. Lesnar” at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on November 15.

Bout agreements have been distributed to both fighters and are just now awaiting signatures. Representatives from Silva’s management team, however, indicate that the Brazilian camp will have its end of the agreement signed and completed by the end of the day.

“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.

the Cecil People's action figure is classic, hilarious pics

Rogan's action figure should have a draw string that makes him say "that submission is in deep"

hahahaha

There could be plenty for Rogan.

"Oh!!!!!!!!!!!! nice inside leg kick."

"He's gotta watch out for the omoplata!"

"Big right hand! He seems to be okay though...."

"Good transistion"

"Sick Jiu Jitsu"

And for Goldie:

"IT'S ALLLLLL OVERRRR!!!"

"See you, inside the Octagon"

"AREEEE YOUUUUU KIDDDDDING MEEEEE????!!!!"

"THE ICCEEMAAAN (insert *returns* *is defeated* *is back* etc.)

Awesome stuff, fellas, all around. :D The action figures rule.

Also- you gotta know Liddell is PISSED about that KO. He got exposed big time on the declines in his game like keeping his hands low and wide while fighting, the conditioning, etc. I just finished reading his autobiography where he wrote a big section about how he is always so relaxed before a fight, he often has sex with 2 or 3 women in his hotel THAT DAY. He's a supremely confident guy and as I read all of his bragging and boasting for 200 pages, I remember thinking he was going to get owned by a young one soon. The Jardine fight wasn't really enough ownage, the Rampage II fight was a loss by a vet. This one was truly embarrassing and I bet he wishes he kept his game together and trained harder for what he thought was an easy "W."
