Liddell rushing Jackson?

We all know that Rampage wanted to get some more fights in under his belt, and build up a fan base here in America. Could it be possible that Chuck really doesn't want Rampage to get some fights in with the Octagon. I'm not saying Chuck is a coward, I dislike the guy but I do respect his courage. But Chuck has so much to gain from beating Rampage, to shut up the remaining critics and I do wonder if in the back of his head, he's thinking "He kicked my ass bad last time, but most UFC fans didn't see it." which is making him pressure Dana White into hurrying this fight up, really only fighting a semi-ready Jackson.

I do wonder though, because Jackson has been training in Team Punishment for awhile which is a great team and all, if he will show up and fight like Tito did not really pressing the action, or do what really has been Chuck's weakness pressing the action, taken/avoiding the big bombs and making it a wrestling/GNP type of fight.

Top 5 Fav. Fighters(In Order):
1)Quinton "Rampage" Jackson
2)George St. Pierre
3)Andrei Arlovski
4)Rich Franklin
5)Brock Lesnar

Liddell's best bet is to rush QJ and never let him establish a comfort zone. QJ is awsome, but i think he sometimes takes a little too long to get into a groove.

this fight makes me drip with anticipitory goo!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

They (by which I mean the UFC) rushed the fight against Liddell vs. Jackson because they do not have anymore suitable contenders for Liddell to face anymore.

Jardine, Griffin, Bisping all are strikers who would not stand a hell of a chance against Liddell. They would all get KO.

Machida would be interesting since he is very technical and is also a counter-puncher. I am afraid that he does not have the KO powers that is needed to stop Liddell. Liddell will most likely catch him with one of his punches and knock him out. Evans would also be an interesting fight since he has the potential to ground Liddell. Problem is, I think he will eat a lot of shots trying to take Liddell down and then Liddell will just get up again and knock him out as well.

Rampage Jackson is the most obvious choice for his next title defence. This also sets up for a rubber match if Liddell does win. It is a perfect business choice IMO.

If anybody is rushing Rampage its Dana White. He wants to show the world that Chuck is the greatest fighter in MMA history by having him avenge all his loses. Seriously have you ever seen Dana swing off of somebodies nuts so hard like he does with Liddell. Even in that one interview he gave to Fox news he practically said the only reason Chuck lost that fight with Rampage and Couture was because of an injury. Chuck will keep quiet because he has more class then that. But Dana will make the excuses for him. Its Maddening!

I don't know man...if I was a top level fighter I'd also want to avenge any losses I had in the past. Seems like the natural thing to do...

If they have Rampage for a few fights, feed him to CL now and set up CvR III. Once in the ring, once in the Octagon....
another warmup and then straight to second Octagon and 2nd rematch.

I jsut saw in an interview with Rampage that he wanted a couple fights under his belts so the fans can get used to him he said it doesn't really matter to him because he has fought in a cage before. So with that being said I am taking Rampage by KO in the 2nd round.

Well said. This also exposes Rampage to a bigger audience, and whoever beats Lidell now is a made man, who better than Jackson right now? Nobody cuts better promos, Rampage will be a massive star for the ufc. Also may set up a rematch with Shogun.
