I guess this can work out. Rashads doctors told him his knee would need 8 weeks to recover. That would give him about an 8 week training camp, which should be good enough for someone like Rashad.

I have to say, I'm excited. I don't think many people were fully satisfied with the results of the first fight. I hope we get a stoppage in this one, one way or the other.

I picked Evans last time, and I'll pick him again, but it's gonna be rough if he has ring rust.

All money related. Already a stacked card. So I don't get why they have to do it. But they know a lot of fans will eat it up just because it is Page-Rashad. Makes no sense other than the UFC making money off a fight that has no business happening right now. I guess they don't have many options with fighters tied up or injured. But it still is ridiculous.

[UPDATE] via Tatame.com:
Hearing the news, we contacted by phone Thiago Silva, and the fighter was surprised. "Hurt me? I am very healthy and can not wait to fight with Rampage."

"This is a lie." says James, supported by Conan Silveira, one of the leaders of American Top Team. "...The fight is marked yes." Stay tuned to Tatame to learn more about the confusion.

Sounds like it's not off after all But yeah, at this moment in time Page - Evans 2 makes no sense

Hope Rampage KO's Thiago!!

I see.
We'll see if this is completely confirmed, then someone has to shut this thread down.

Don't shoot the messenger.

I will be rooting hard for Rampage. But this fight makes zero sense. Rashad won easily less than a year ago. Don't care to see it.
He loss b/c he had NO cardio at the time and he had to cut a ton of weight from the stupid movie he was in. If the Rampage that fought Machida shows up, and Rashad doesn't run around like a school girl again, Rampage should inflict some damage. But it REALLY could go either way IMO

Ok let me get this straight. Rashad gets injured and can't face Shogun. Then Rampage allegedly turns down the Shogun fight and is still set to fight Silva. JBJ steps in to fight Shogun. Then Thiago gets hurt and now we have Rampage/Rashad II.

Wow...

Come watch me make a fool of myself on YouTube

**** no, NO NO NO NO NO, why Thiago of all the LHW's why him, dam dam dam, the UFC is full of shit this is Bullsh1t, I had my doubts about the whole Rash situation thinking maybe they knew from training Jones was the better fighter, and maybe because they wanted to give Jones a title shot this year they did not want to risk Rash talking the title and having a no go with Jones vs Rash.

I smelt BS there, now it stinks even worse that it just so happens that Silva is out and Rah is up and ready for Rampage.

I smelt BS on the Cain Injury as well as a way of bringing Brock back into he title picture after such a huge disappointment the UFC must of suffered at watching the top PPV seller lose the title.

It would not be the first time the UFC has faked injuries to get the fight they want to happen in the name of PPV sales on the cards, I recall 2 ring girl losing there jobs for talking about a case of this with some MMA reporter, this is fcuking BS.

I'm not a Machida fanboy that says Machida won. But what did Rampage prove in that fight? That he could stalk a guy who is running around the octagon for 3 rounds? The only thing that fight proved is Machida is still a runner and thought he could steal the fight at the end. Not like Rampage could do much with a guy that is much faster and who was on his bike. But that fight didn't tell me Rampage looks great now.

Hope it is true that this is just a rumor.
