UFC 114: Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. “Suga” Rashad Evans main event official!

UFC have officially announced the grudge match TUF fans have been waiting, pitting “The Ultimate Fighter 10” coaches and former light heavyweight champions, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and “Suga” Rashad Evans in the main event at UFC 114 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 29th, 2010.

Speaking via UFC.com, President, Dana White said:

“It’s no secret that Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans don’t like each other, and this rivalry has gotten more and more intense in the last few months. I can guarantee you that neither one of these guys wants to lose to each other, this fight is going to be insane.”

“Rampage” had this to say about his UFC 114 opponent:

“I really want to knock this guy out. I’ve never, ever wanted to knock someone as cold as I want to knock Rashad Evans out. He’s disrespected me so much, for so long. I am so motivated to train my ass off. I’ve moved my coaches into my house already – Rashad should be prepared to see a brand new Rampage in May. I saw him in Sydney a few weeks back and we picked up right where we left off. I can’t stand him. He’s a disrespectful person and I didn’t even want to beat Wanderlei as much as I want to beat this guy.”

Rashad had a different approach on the main event fight:

“I don’t like all the pre-fight talking, so I can’t wait until I finally get my chance to shut him up,” said Evans. “There were a lot of times on the show when I wanted to hit him right there. When Keith [Jardine] was training for his fight with Rampage, I had to mimic Rampage’s style. I can probably beat Rampage as Rampage now. Plus, he’s gotten fat. He needs to get in shape just to get in shape. I may come to the Octagon with Mr. T just to get in his head.”
