Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs. Thiago Silva targeted for UFC 130

Quote:
Fresh off a dominating win over Brandon Vera at UFC 125, light heavyweight Thiago Silva (15-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) next will fight former champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (31-8 MMA, 6-2 UFC) in a UFC 130 bout expected to have a major impact on the title picture.

Sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) verbal agreements are in place for the fight.

UFC 130 takes place May 28 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Jackson vs. Silva likely will be part of the pay-per-view main card, possibly in a headlining or co-headlining spot.

Despite fighting for the first time in a year due to injuries, Silva looked sharp in a lopsided unanimous-decision win over Vera this past week. Silva dominated the fight on the mat with frequent takedowns, a smothering top game, and ground and pound that ultimately broke his opponent's nose. In the end, the judges awarded the Brazilian the decision via scores of 30-26, 30-27 and 30-27.

Prior to the victory, Silva opened his career with a 13-0 mark but then went 1-2 with losses to former champs Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans and a knockout win over Keith Jardine.

Jackson, meanwhile, recently got back into the title picture and rebounded from his own loss to Evans with a close split-decision victory over Machida in November's UFC 123 headliner. It was his third win in the four fights since he lost his belt to Forrest Griffin in 2008. The former PRIDE star's other recent victories came over Wanderlei Silva (knockout) and Jardine (decision).

Good fight, but for some reason I'm not really interested in seeing it. I'm pretty sure it will be different when 130 is near.

This fight is going to be AMAZING. I like both guys, but I think Rampage is going to get the KO. Silva did look good against Vera though, but 'Page is just a totally different animal.

Great fight for a potentially great card. Thiago is getting KOd imo.

Wow what a matchup.

Is it me or is Thiago Silva looking huge these days? He has serious power but slightly suspect chin and we all know what Rampage brings to the table.

This fight is going to be fireworks. Can't wait

Great matchup. Neither will get Rashad'd. Going to be a stand up showdown.

However, I hope this doesn't end up being a #1 contender match. Winner of Jon Jones/Bader should face this winner for next title shot. Unless Rashad has the belt and JJ wins it...then it gets screwy.
