Yeah...

This doesn't air as the same night as UFC 168, I'll buy it....just to see the beating a world class boxer can dish out on Rampage.

It will probably outsell UFC 168.

I don't believe it, Jones was just Dana White's guest if he had any interest in fighting an MMA fight it would be against Anderson Siva in the UFC not Rampage for a B-Rate promotion.

HOLY SH!T: Rampage' Jackson vs. Roy Jones Jr. At the End of 2013. PPV Only

Cheese Sauce

Quote:
Viacom is expected to announce plans to go head-to-head with pay-per-view juggernaut Zuffa LLC and its UFC 168 offering at next week's Bellator 97 event on Spike TV.

An unveiling of Bellator fighter Quinton "Rampage" Jackson's plans with the promotion will likely include a pay-per-view boxing match with former multi-division boxing champ Roy Jones Jr., multiple sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The fight is expected to take place at the end of the year, though a date and weight class for the bout could not immediately be confirmed. It's also unclear how the event will be branded given Bellator and parent company Viacom's focus on MMA.

"We've been talking to Roy and his people over a potential 'Rampage' vs. Roy fight for over seven months," a representative from Jackson's longtime team, Wolfslair MMA, told MMAjunkie.com. The rep requested anonymity due to the ongoing negotiations related to the matchup.

"If it happens, it would be an incredible fight," the rep said. "Boxing and MMA have both been discussed, and (Bellator Chairman and CEO) Bjorn (Rebney) has been in these discussions every step of the way. I can't say much more than that. We'll see what happens."

Bellator MMA officials declined to comment on the possible event.

Jones, who owns a 56-8 boxing record, recently was in discussions with the UFC for a possible fight with the promotion's middleweight champ, Anderson Silva, who lobbied for several years to fight the 44-year-old Jones in the squared circle. That, however, was before Silva's title was ripped from his hands by Chris Weidman, who knocked him out earlier this month at UFC 162. The two are scheduled to rematch Dec. 28 in Las Vegas at UFC 168, which continues the organization's annual tradition of big year-end cards.

Jackson (32-11 MMA, 0-0 BFC), a former UFC light-heavyweight champion who hasn't boxed professionally, earlier this year signed a multi-year deal to fight in Bellator and appear as a pro wrestler with TNA Wrestling, in addition to developing a four-part reality show and movie projects with Viacom, which owns a majority stake in the MMA promotion.

Until now, Jackson's fighting plans remained unknown. The 35-year-old most recently appeared in the UFC octagon, where he fulfilled his contract in a losing effort against Glover Teixeira at UFC on FOX 6 in January. It marked his third consecutive MMA loss.

Jackson blamed his skid on his soured relationship with the UFC and repeatedly expressed a desire to box professionally. During a June press conference announcing his new deal with Bellator, he said he would turn over a new leaf.

"The deal they gave me set me up for the future, and when other fighters really understand this deal they gave me, I think a lot of other fighters that are not happy with their contract in other shows are going to come to Bellator, and the competition is going to come over," Jackson said.

Hilarious. Rampage is going to get embarrassed. Roy Jones Jr might have lost a step in the last few years, but he'd have to lose 5 to make this a close fight. Rampage is getting lit up, and this should hopefully end the ridiculous fallacy that Rampage is a top boxer. He's a good MMA boxer. He's getting mauled here.

I think RJJ's plans got derailed when Anderson lost and now is after his belt again. RJJ wants a fight and he is an old pal to keep waiting, so why not fight Rampage under any semi-decent Org? It will be entertaining anyway and both will make money as well.

What a bad idea - RJJ is going to make rampage look really stupid in a boxing ring. I'll watch it but will keep a barf bag nearby.

This could be a ploy for contract disputes like the Alvarez one. Jones would bring in the ppv buys allowing Bellator to claim a proven track record on PPV that they could not get on there own

I don't think Dana ever was or would have anything to do with RJJ unless he was going to do a Lights Out and fight in the UFC.

James Toney recently lost to an MMA fighter in a boxing match. Can't remember the dudes name. That being said, I doubt this fight will go through, Rampage has to know he will die.
