Quick Quote: Dana White confirms the winner of Rampage-Evans will challenge Shogun Rua

Speaking via the Carmichael Dave Show, Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White has officially confirmed that the winner of the UFC 114 grudge match between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans will challenge Mauricio Rua in his first title defense at the UFC Light Heavyweight division:

“The winner of the Rampage Jackson vs Rashad Evans fight at UFC 114 will get the first shot at Shogun Rua.”
