Rashad Evans “was gonna be ready” to step in against “Rampage” on May 28th

Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Rashad Evans has revealed that he was more than ready to step into the octagon for a rematch with long time bitter rival, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 130 on May 28th until the promotion decided to pull the plug altogether.

Evans, speaking via MMAMania.com, said:

“I wanted it. I was gonna do it for May. When I heard Thiago (Silva) was out I was like ‘Alright, I’ll fight Rampage again,’ but then they put Matt Hamill in there. They didn’t want to put that fight together for whatever reason. I would have found a way. I woulda gave it a go. I’ve been doing some pretty aggressive treatment on my knee and I was thinkin’ I was gonna be ready.”
