0

The following is an excerpt from a Los Angeles Times article by Lance Pugmire:

Jackson hadn't planned on fighting Liddell so quickly in his UFC career, but his manager said UFC President Dana White tore up their prior contract and offered a new four-fight deal that will begin with this title fight.

“Our plan was to get more exposure in the UFC so the American public would become more familiar with Rampage, but don't get me wrong … with Rampage's ability, he knows how to handle this,” Juanito Ibarra, Jackson's manager/trainer said. “Chuck Liddell is a fight we're ready for.

“Chuck's the champion of the world, but Rampage has a style to beat Chuck and take his title.”
