All the fighters slated to participate in tomorrow night’s “UFC 114: Rampage vs. Evans” event tipped the scales today inside the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The biggest feud in recent MMA history will finally come to a head when former light heavyweight champs Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans meet in the card’s featured contest.
Rampage holds an impressive 30-7 professional record, however hasn’t fought since taking an uneventful unanimous decision over Keith Jardine, Evans’ Jackson Submission Fighting teammate, at UFC 96 last March.
Evans bounced back nicely from his only professional loss when he escaped with a unanimous decision victory over Thiago Silva at UFC 108. Although the wrestler dominated much of the matchup, Evans was nearly knocked out in the fight’s closing seconds by a desperate Silva.
Although today’s festivities took place at the Mandalay Bay, tomorrow’s extravaganza will be held inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena just down The Strip.
