A date has finally been set for the last fight on Quinton Jackson's UFC contract. The former Light Heavyweight champion was originally scheduled to face Glover Teixeira in the co-main event of UFC 153. However, Rampage was forced from the contest after suffering an elbow injury only 3 weeks before the event. Glover went on to put a vicious beating on Fabio Maldonado. Following Teixeira's win, both he and Rampage asked to have their original match rescheduled.

Tonight, Jackson tweeted that they now have a date set for the fight on his Twitter:

@Rampage4real Outside the cage I hate no one. Life is too short for that. In side the cage my Job is to destroy! Glover is done on Jan 26 n Chicago..

At least theyre efficiently hyping Glover from Rampages name. I hope the Page lands a biggun.

Could be a bad idea showcasing Rampage on Fox in a very winnable last fight on his contract.

Not saying he will beat Glover, but it's certainly a risk in my opinion.

Agreed. The UFC seems to be getting it right on the Fox cards now, with regards to showcasing emerging contenders/talent.

This is a great match up. I'm glad the UFC manage to get this fight back on track. Like him or not Rampage has been one of the best LHW in the world for a long time and Glover wants to be known as one of the best, if he can beat Rampage he will definitely be putting himself up there

Hope Glover wipes the floor with him and knocks some screws back in place in his head.

I have honestly watched both of them fight for man years now and I think Rampage will pull this off. His chin is a bit better, for those key of you new to Glover just watch his last fight.....dude does get rocked just a little bit easier than Page and Page punches way harder than Maldinado who should honestly be a MW. Page will get in the kind of exchanges he likes and does well in, Glover will definitely oblige him on that. Page has fought so many wrestlers in a row now that his tdd is actually pretty damn good so I think he will be able to suceed there. I will be picking Rampage all day.

I agree with some of what you said, but when was the last time we seen Rampage actually threw some leather?? He has lacked that killer instinct for awhile now.

Still a great match up, this Fox card has 3 great fights already.

Rampage will throw leather if he's not scared shitless of the takedown. Difference will be experience and Glovers speed I think is a LOT higher. Speed kills.

A past his prime rampage vs. a big time up-and-comer. I think Glover makes Rampage look silly. I think he can take it any way he wants. I personally hope he delievers an absolute beating like he gave to Maldonado. If he does, Rampage will be finished in Round 1. He doesnt have the chin or heart anymore to take a potential beating like that. If I was Rampage, Id be extremely nervous for this fight.
