MEMPHIS, Tenn. – It was supposed to be a glorious day for former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.

With the UFC rolling into his hometown of Memphis, Tenn., for this Saturday's "UFC 107: Penn vs. Sanchez" event, Jackson was supposed to be the focus of the week.

Instead, that honor has fallen to lightweight champion B.J. Penn and challenger Diego Sanchez, but UFC president Dana White said at Thursday's pre-event press conference that Jackson should be the only one concerned at his absence.

"If anyone should be upset, it's 'Rampage,'" White said.

even if Evans doesn't win..there'll still be black on black crime..since i don't see Evans makin it past T. Silva..and i'm pretty sure they'll throw Rampage a warm-u fight..maybe Forest part 2...

Hard to call Forest a warm up for page considering he already beat him.

Rashad has earned a fight with Rampage IM win or lose........This is coming from a guy who could not stand Rashad, but after watching TUF i have a new found respect for the guy, and dislike Rampage even more then i already did.......

Plus the fight would still sell if they acted on it quickly!
