Rampage is going to get destroyed! He needs another fight or two before he's ready for Chuck.

Is this confirmed or is it just another rumor? I sure hope it's a rumor.

Good point. Didn't even think about that.
Now there's no reason for that fight to happen at UFC 71.

UFC doesn't give title fights to fighters with one fight left on their contract to avoid fighters holding out for more money, so the only way they fight is if Rampage has signed a contract extension. The only thing that gives this rumor weight is that MMa Weekly has been very accurate in the past.

I certainly would like to see that matchup again. I would probably bet on Jackson too. It isn't like he's new. And it isn't like he beat chuck last time with some lucky punch. He beat him. And all the moans about how much better chuck is now than then won't change the fact that Rampage is better now too. Pride is a whole different level of fighter. Yes there are awesome fighters in the UFC, but Pride takes it up a notch. At least it did before they started going under. Anywho, It would be a ppv worth buying.

If he wins the UFC will offer him a huge contract more than likely.
Just take a look at the WW divison. As soon as GSP won the title. He signed a new contract with Zuffa. Even though he had 2 fights left on his old one. Dana White wants to keep his champions happy. He doesnt want anymore BJ incidents.
