UFC officials today confirmed that, as expected, UFC 114 will be headlined by a Lightheavyweight fight between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and “Sugar” Rashad Evans. Fighters have agreed and signed the deals for said fight, taking place May 29th in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.Both fighters served as coaches on the 10th series of The Ultimate Fighter, and many a verbal blow was exchanged.

Both fighters shared an almost unhealthy amount of trash talk, and it’s no secret how much they dislike each other, and almost came to blows on more than one occasion.UFC president Dana White had this to say, about the upcoming match:

“It’s no secret that Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans don’t like each other, and this rivalry has gotten more and more intense in the last few months,” said White. “I can guarantee you that neither one of these guys wants to lose to each other, this fight is going to be insane.

“Tickets for the event are priced a t$650, $450, $300, $200, $125 and $75(not including handling fee’s etc) and go on sale March 27th. The card is also expected to feature bouts between

    Whats so damn poor? Forrest its gonna win! i dont know how many times people have said that forrest sucks and shit. He is the most underated fighter in the hole ufc. He is the underdog almost every fight and he wins the most of them

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/RoryKernaghan Rory Kernaghan

    yeh u have 2 remember forrest beat rampage and shogun(who beat lil nog in pride) so he is a good fighter.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/DanielCassidy Daniel Cassidy

    i love the noguiera’s, but pray that griffin gets back to winning, i know he can do it, as much as i love that guy, he just needs to develop a knock out punch, increase his punching power and once again he’s a force to be reckoned with

    Rampage is going to destroy Rashad, and then maybe we will get to see Rampage vs Shogun rematch, that would be sick and this card is stacked hopefully there aren’t any injuries

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/tapoutkingzsup tapoutkingzsup

    forest isnt going to win i think lil nog is way better forest will get koed 1st round

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/tapoutkingzsup tapoutkingzsup

    forest got lucky wtih shogun,shogun was coming off knee surgery,lil nog trains with blackhorse and what happened last time he ran home crying thats y i dont like him

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/DanielCassidy Daniel Cassidy

    dude u cant say forrest got lucky, it was a choke like, if it was tko by leg kicks then fair enough. it was a great fight, it was shogun’s fault that he came in with bad cardio, not forrests

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/tapoutkingzsup tapoutkingzsup

    its still along ways away i see this going to rashad and lil nog

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Ryan Ryan

    This is a helluva stacked card.
    Can’t wait for this one, UFC looks back on form

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/DR3W DR3W

    oh i cant wait

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/comonson comonson

    thats a match thats waiting to happen
    if everything falls into place.. rampage destroys rashad, shogun knocks out machida.
    cuz i wonder how machida will look ko’d ( talking pictures)
    i know rashad looked like an ASS when he first got KO’d , funny shit

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/bkigrdjf bkigrdjf

    what a idiot comment you said he came from sugery? that means after the surgery hes healthy if not how could he fight idiot? you just cant accept the truth

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/warrior6 warrior6

    and i guess it was also shogun’s fault that he couldn’t train from his knee injury and surgery?

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Akordas Akordas

    wow! Micheal Bisping??? He lost for silva and he is going fight so quick…. respect… This event will going to have atleast 2 fight of the year nominations…..

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/japanegro23 japanegro23

    Ok Forrest “beat” Rampage…

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/MAMBA24ILL MAMBA24ILL

    It will have been 3 months from his defeat to Silva

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Ninja Ninja

    its prolly gonna have ko of the year to, rampage is going to decapitate evans

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/DavidSaucier David Saucier

    It will be over a year since Rampage has fought his last fight was Jardine at “96” I think, but im still giving it to Rampage especially if Evans is moving away from his stand up style, and back to wrestling. Hopefully he stands and bangs with Rampage.

    gtfo!!! forrest beat an injured shogun

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/UndefeatedOfWest UndefeatedOfWest

    I really hope this cards happens! I’ve been waiting for rampage vs rashad forever! Rampage, please ko rashad!!!

    what a idiot comment you said he came from sugery? that means after the surgery hes healthy if not how could he fight idiot? you just cant accept the truth

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Gabe Gabe

    Yeah, but that wasn’t the same Shogun… Forest couldn’t even hit Anderson.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Gabe Gabe

    For sure.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/tapoutkingzsup tapoutkingzsup

    anyone knows rampage doent do good aginst ppl.who throw knees or legkicks forrest wouldnt do good at the top of the lhw div.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/thagonjaking thagonjaking

    hopefully rashad doesnt drop his hands to talk shit during an exchange again in this one. but then again rampage would probably react by doing the same thing

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/campbell campbell

    You need to rewatch the forrest rampage fight a lot of people think shogun beat machida (I agree but I think it was much closer than forrest rampage) but you have to decisively BEAT the champ Forrest did not Rampage got screwed. I wanted to see Rampage Rashad then. You cant tell Forrest EARNED a title fight before an undefeated Rashad. Im still excited to see this fight although I dont think it will be what it could have been given Rampages ring rust. Forrest is gonna get crushed again he is the most OVERRATED fighter ever! Hopefully he will get his walking papers and cry all the home!

    Weak me all you want you know its all true.
