After all the controversy over Quinton "Rampage" Jackson wanting out of his contract, it turns out he won't fight at UFC 153 after all.

Jackson (32-10 MMA, 7-4 UFC) is injured and out of his co-main event fight against Glover Teixeira (18-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) next month in Brazil. UFC President Dana White on Tuesday tweeted the news. The nature of his injury was not announced.

It is not yet known if a replacement for Jackson will be sought to step in on just under five weeks' notice, or if Teixeira will be pulled from the card.

UFC 153 takes place Oct. 13 at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. The pay-per-view features a main event featherweight title fight between Brazilian champion Jose Aldo and former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar.

I knew it was too good to be true. Dana make him wait and fighter Glover at 154. He aint squirming out of this one

Good job Rampage, way to come through again for the company and the fans

I guess the meeting of the intellectuals between Queen Mo and ramPAGE forced his out of shape body and weak mind to once again - - - get hurt and disappoint.

FAILURE.

Have Shogun step in.... Oh Wait......

Sonnen, Bonnar, Evans, Te Huna (If he's healed) would all be worthy opponents.

Probably a good thing for Page. I agree with making Glover wait for Page to get healthy.

Shogun WOULD have something to gain in that fight after his last god aweful performance against "the raisin" brandon vera.

Attention Joe Silva - - - fax me the contract, I'll have it signed faster than you can say Freeway Chase.

Thiago Silva would be a sweet fight if he wants to fight sooner rather than later vs Nedkov

I like the idea of having Glover wait til Rampage is healthy. But they need to salvage UFC 153. So an idea keep Glover as co-main and find him a decent opponent. And when Rampage is ready sick Rashad on him and send Rampage packing.

Beings that Evans already beat Rampage, I have no interest in seeing Rampage taken down again. Rampage has become a very uninteresting fighter to watch. Gone are the days of the power slam

Maybe not, but either way he'll still talk shit about it on twitter.

It could be. If he took the fight with Sonnen then Belfort would be able to fight Glover. Rule of thumb: everything is Jon Jones' fault

I find these posts very annoying.

The worst one was the "blame it on the black guy" post in the Aldo injury thread. Like others have said, that situation has nothing to do with race and its ridiculous to bring it up.

Most people think JJ screwed up by not accepting the fight with Sonnen. You disagree, we get it.

That doesn't mean you have to remind everyone about your opinion in every single post you make.

"blame it on the black guy"





Hahahaha when was that?? LOL

I don't support racism at all I think theres a line between a joke and true statements. Personal all white people jokes are hilarious to me as are Britsh jokes, I find all "racist" jokes hilarious, aimed at me or not. You just have to keep light hearted.

Just cancel the card and blame it on the black guy.



I'm not upset or anything. If people are joking and making these statements all in good fun, then whatever.

But there was a guy on here before (who's name I don't remember) insisting that all of the Jon Jones hate was race related.

If it was meant to be funny, the delivery was just awful. I'm pretty sure that guy was serious, whereas 20 was clearly being sarcastic(to those of us that have been around the site long enough to know it). This isn't the Homecoming king voting site, if you make a good point here you get your props, if you talk like a paper asshole you get flamed.

If 20 was just kidding then I take back my comment.

I figured you just didn't realize it, that other guy was a piece of work though.
