It was being rumored last week that Quinton “Rampage” Jackson would make his return to the Octagon in January at UFC 93 against Wanderlei Silva. It now seems that Jackson is going to fight on UFC 92, but his opponent has not yet been signed.

“I fight on December 27 and I’m hoping it’s against him [Wanderlei Silva]. And if it is I’m going to be ready to steamroller him,” Jackson to The Sun.

According to Jackson, every light heavyweight that the UFC has approached regarding a possible fight with him has turned down the offer.

If he can’t get a re-match for his UFC light heavyweight title, the next best thing for Jackson would be another crack at Silva.

Silva has two brutal victories over Jackson from back in their PRIDE days.
