Rampage Confirmed By Dana White To Be In The UFC! Rampage vs. Iceman 2 In '07!

The mixed martial arts world continues to grow yet streamline at the same time.
According to a press release circulated today by Zuffa LLC, owners of the UFC, the thriving Las Vegas-based promotion has absorbed all of the assets still connected with the failing World Fighting Alliance organization.

"WFA Enterprises, LLC, a subsidiary of Zuffa, purchased select fighter contracts and the trademarks and other intellectual property of World Fighting Alliance, Inc., a corporation owned by Las Vegas attorneys, Ross Goodman and Louis Palazzo," read the release.

Following a three year hiatus, the WFA had returned to Los Angeles in July with its "King of the Streets" event, but had since postponed a follow-up date scheduled for the Aladdin Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

As announced by sherdog.com last week, former WFA CEO Jeremy Lappen had entered into legal proceedings against the WFA organization, citing a breach of contract for non-payment of services.

UFC president Dana White confirmed to The Fight Network this evening that light heavyweight standout Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (22-6) is among the talents this acquisition has facilitated. Jackson remains one of UFC Light Heavyweight Chuck Liddell's few and most high profile losses, dating back to the semi-final round of PRIDE's Final Conflict 2003 tournament, where Jackson eliminated Liddell (19-3) via a TKO referee stoppage from strikes.

White did not reveal when fans can expect Rampage to make his Octagon debut.

Fighters Matt Lindland, Heath Herring, Ivan Salaverry, Jason "Mayhem" Miller, and Urijah Faber have all been established in the past as under either exclusive or non-exclusive WFA contracts. Confirmation on their new status is yet to come.

This is awesome, excited to see rampage in the octagon. It would also be great to see salaverry back in there too, I love watching him, and let's hope (along with salavery) lindland, herring and even miller get ufc contracts, they'd all be great too see. (not a big fan of miller but u got to give him so respect for the beating he took from GSP).

This is really good news. Rampage is an exciting fighter, not to mention a very strong one (I'm still amazed by how he lifted Arona from the ground). I can't wait to see him KO someone via slam again.
