Bloody Elbow has learned that the UFC is considering an immediate rematch between Quinton Jackson and Forrest Griffin after the razor close decision on Saturday night. A major factor in determining whether there is such a rematch is Jackson's knee. If it is injured and he needs time off, then they'll go another direction, but a source from the Jackson camp say his leg was hurt in the fight, but sustained no damage that should keep him out for an extended period of time. Needless to say, that's not a certified medical opinion or anything, so the status of Jackson's knee remains a question mark.

i really don't even wanna think about the rematch. i think it would go the same way. Forrest may submit him this time though. i don't think rampage can finish him. griffin has gotten sooo much better than before and if he doesn't finish it than its going to decision and we all know how that goes....so how about put some time off for that rematch.

rampage is my favorite UFC fighter. (nick diaz is my favorite fighter obviously)

but come on how can you say he won forrest was controling the whole fight... rampage won the first and 4th in my opinion and thats it... forrest in my opinion won the 2nd round 10-8 which killed rampage

No rematch yet, both guys must fight again before they do it.

Next WILL be Dec.29, UFC 91: Griffin Vs Liddell. Which is a scary fight!

Im not sure what the controversy is over, I thought forrest won that fight hands down

If rampage couldnt handle forrests sticking and moving he would get outright been slaughtered by a more elusive machida

wow, Machida is going to have to wait forever to get a title shot now. Nice going, Rampage.

Forrest would get destroyed by Machida as well.

If think if Rampage gets this immediate rematch, I bet Chuck would be the first guy protesting. I dont think Machida would be protesting, He seems like a pretty patient guy.

They're going to screw Machida and make him wait either way. If Rampage isn't ready to go for the immediate rematch then I'm quite sure the UFC will give the next shot to the Liddell-Evans winner.

hes a mature guy, obviously hes not going to fight the decision regardless.
This is the guy that after winning against ninja(Wrongfully), gave murilo the trophy and his winning bonus... his character would never allow him to say after the fight that he didnt lose and in fact it was judges partiallity.

the point of rampage saying he got whooped means nothing.

I think a rematch would be good, because it was so close anyone could have won it. I bet it will be better than the first fight, because the time off made Forrest and Rampage rusty.
