Rampage Vs. Wanderlei Silva 3 Very Close To Be Signed

0

From MMARated.com

MMARated.com has learned that a light heavyweight bout between Wanderlei Silva and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has been offered to both fighters for UFC 91 on November 15th and is very close to being finalized.

The addition of Silva vs. Jackson to a UFC 91 card that is already headlined by Randy Couture vs. Brock Lesnar for the UFC heavyweight title would put this pay-per-view in position to be the highest-grossing PPV in UFC history. Currently, UFC 66 holds that distinction since that event – headlined by a rematch between Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz – grossed $5,397,300 in live gate revenue and just over a million in pay-per-view buys.

This will be the third match up between Rampage and Silva if it does happen to be signed. They locked up before in Pride during the finals of the 2003 Light Heavyweight Grand Prix and then again in October 2004. Silva won both times, the second time by a vicious KO.
