He is not in shape to fight in 6 weeks time for the title shot. He knows he will get another title shot, why ruin it and most likely drop down the ladder with a loss because you werent in shape?

'It appears that while Quinton “Rampage” Jackson won’t get a title shot, he will get a second fight against a former champion.'
I'm just trying to clarify that if he beats Rashad at 130 (the title being up for grabs at 128) he still gets the winner of Jones vs Shogun?
