    RAMPAGE CONFIRMS HENDERSON FIGHT IN LONDON
    Friday, June 08, 2007 - by Ken Pishna - MMAWeekly.com

    --------------------

    Following his destruction of Chuck Liddell at UFC 71, Quinton Jackson was immediately introduced to his next opponent, Dan Henderson. The Ultimate Fighting Championship introduced Henderson, the current Pride 185-pound and 205-pound champion, as its latest marquee acquisition and the first challenger to Jackson’s light heavyweight title.

    Yesterday on CBS 2 in Los Angeles, Jackson confirmed that his fight with Henderson would take place later this year when the UFC returns to England. Speaking to reporter Jim Hill, Jackson noted, “I have to fight September 8th in London with the champion of Japan [Henderson]. He has the belt that I was trying to go for that I never got.”

    UFC 75, planned for September 8th, will be the promotion’s third event of the year in Europe. Although the UFC hasn’t yet officially confirmed the event, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic has mentioned that he will be fighting on the card, and other rumored participants include Michael Bisping, Alessio Sakara, Jess Liaudin, and Dennis Siver.

    What is he going to come in too light?

    I agree with lose lose situation for this fight. Its too early to have one guy hold both belts. What are they going to do from here? Have someone fight for just one belt at a time.. They can't keep crowning a new champ in both organizations everytime there is a fight.

    He came into the fight with wandy at 200 IIRC. I guess he could try to cut to 184 :rofl:

    i dont wanna see rampage vs. hendo. i like both fighters and its like if rampage wins, he was "supposed" to win cause hes a weight class higher. and if he loses that would just suck.

    Does anyone think this is an admission that Pride is going to be dissolved?

    I can't wrap my head around the fact that the UFC would want a unified title right now if they were going to just do away with another organization.

    i think they're keeping pride alive until they sign all of the fighters including fedor. after they get the contracts there's no reason to keep pride.
