Spike and the UFC have announced their intent to produce and broadcast another UFC Primetime series, this time featuring Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans. The debut of the series will take place on Wednesday, May 12th following that evening’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter.

New York, NY, April 19, 2010 – In anticipation of their long awaited light heavyweight clash at UFC 114: RAMPAGE VS EVANS, former UFC light heavyweight champions Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and “Suga” Rashad Evans will go under the microscope on UFC Primetime®, a weekly, three part series premiering Wednesday, May 12 (11:00-11:30pm ET/PT on Spike TV. The second episode will debut on Wednesday, May 19 at 11:00pm ET/PT and the finale will run Wednesday, May 26 at 11:00pm ET/PT.

UFC Primetime, produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®), is a look into the lives of two of the most popular fighters in the UFC, Jackson and Evans, as the two settle a grudge borne during Season 10 of “The Ultimate Fighter,®” with the winner taking #1 contender status in the stacked UFC light heavyweight division.

I can't wait to watch this. Before the Thiago Silva fight I was Rashad all the way on this one. I thought Rampage had become too soft after seeing the likes of the Forrest and Jardine fight. But after seeing how Thiago came back and was able to intemidate Evans with his standup,I could see Rampage pulling the same off,only finishing the fight. That is if he comes in at 100%.

I'm still picking Rashad to win this but I honestly believe Quinton has a better shot than I initialy gave him credit for.
