The UFC is kicking off 2013 with a bang and possibly one of their strongest free cards since they began their deal with Fox.

With UFC on Fox 6 already featuring a flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson and John Dodson and a highly anticipated lightweight scrap between Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone, the card already appeared to be loaded. But now the addition of Glover Teixeira vs. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has really pushed the card to a huge way for the UFC to begin 2013.

The two were supposed to meet at UFC 153 but Jackson had to pull out of the fight due to an injury to his elbow. Teixeira would go on to defeat Fabio Maldonado via TKO. Jackson had been campaigning for a rematch with Forrest Griffin in the event that Teixeira couldn’t fight due to injury. However, Phil Davis landed the fight with Griffin and Jackson was upset with being unable to land a fight that he wanted. Being one of the few fighters who called out the hyped Brazilian, we’re sure Jackson is happy that he finally got the fight he wanted considering it is the final fight on Rampage’s UFC contract.

Jackson is looking to shake a two fight losing streak while Teixeira hasn’t lost in 17 fights and is looking to enter the conversation as the next opponent for Jon Jones‘ UFC light heavyweight title.
