Quinton "Rampage" Jackson wants to wear the UFC light heavyweight championship again, but what he desires most is another crack at the last man to defeat him.

How dumb does this sound? Griffin would run the train on him again, but he might have a shot against Evans. Why wouldn't he want to fight for the title?

Run the train? IMO and many other Rampage won that fight, but either way it was close.

I think Forrest won against rampage. But I would rather see Rampage fight evans because if forrest and rampage rematched I would only want it to be a 5 round fight for the title, assuming rampage beats rashad.

Also if rampage becomes champ again and shogun gets a title shot. Hell yeah!

Agreed I believe it was a draw at the very least but what ever that ship has sailed. Forrest had a very good gameplan against Rampage but if Jackson just checked those leg kicks we wouldn't be talking about this right now but he didn't and hear we are.
Run the train must have a new meaning i guess.

He wants to avenge his defeats I see no problem with that. All Rampage needs to do is land a nice shot on Forrest and in a three round fight i would most def. take Rampage.

I am completely in favor of this. The winner of Silva/Machida is very deserving of a shot, straight up.

Page got screwd in that fight with Griffin. It was close but Forrest did not do enough to beat the champ. Bonnar also got screwd in that first fight(even Forrest said so). War Rampage FTUF
