Rampage Jackson to headline UFC on FOX 2 against Bader or Bonnar

MMA LATEST EXCLUSIVE: Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson VS Ryan Bader is set to be the UFC on Fox 2 main event.

UPDATE - Regarding our exclusive, turns out our source has said he wasn't sure if Rampage's coach said Bader or Bonnar, definitely one of them though

I'd be more excited were it Bonnar. Not that Bader would be a particularly bad match-up.

I also don't know how you go from Cain vs. JDS to Rampage vs. Bonnar/Bader, but I guess I shouldn't have expected marquee bouts and title matches beyond the inaugural show. Not that Rampage himself isn't a 'marquee' name. I guess it depends on the undercard... if it's only their second go, here's hoping we see the likes of Chael and Munoz on the card, as well. I feel as though UFC often gives us 'good fights' for free, but very rarely do we get 'BIG fights' for free. The businessman in me understands why, but I was hoping FOX would be used as a venue for more dream/title bouts in the future.

Or maybe I'm just being a negative nancy because it's exam time

I think Sonnen/Munoz will still be a part of it, it's a four fight card and Rampage was in the A-Team not too long ago so he's likely to have been seen by tons of people, he can be funny at times but a dick at others and he's all about exciting fights these days as his run at a title is most likely over.

Plus, every Champion is booked or hurt or just coming off a fight, I'm sure the second show will have a title fight on it.

Bonnar would be a great matchup, and he's been asking for it for awhile.

It would probably be a lot like Jardine vs Rampage.

Rampage vs Bonnar sounds most likely since both fighters have recently said they want to fight eachother

Not sure about the source, but this fight makes sense - Since Rampage was uspet that he wasn't fighting in Japan anyways, probably because he's FOX-bound

Am I the only one not interested at all in this? Neither fight is interesting to me.

Bader v Rampage would look just like Hammil v Rampage. And Bonnar v Rampage makes no sense at all in the division. Rampage just lost a title fight, Bonnar isn't even in the top 10.

Think. It Ain't Illegal Yet
