UFC 103: Lyoto Machida vs. Rampage Jackson
According to Lyoto Machida’s official Web page, he will face Quinton "Rampage" Jackson at UFC 103 for the light heavyweight championship.
UFC 103 will be held on Sept. 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It will be another great night for the Dragon, Machida, who will once again have the opportunity to showcase his skills against a very powerful opponent.
It is a very interesting match because we will see a style-versus-strength fight. As of right now, Machida is the leading favorite, especially considering his recent demolition of Rashad Evans
As an added twist, the two coaches for season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter will be Jackson and Evans. We all know that after every season, the two coaches square off against each other.
The way a see it, if Jackson beats Machida at UFC 103, then Evans gets a title shot against him (Evans will probably have one fight before he can fight for the title). If Jackson loses, he will have to face Evans to regain his No. 1 contender status.
The bottom line: UFC president Dana White wants to see Jackson and Evans fight, so TUF season 10 would be a great opportunity to hype a grudge match that should happen in the near future.
