Rampage Jackson Unsure he Wants to Take Fight Against Rashad Evans in May

Rampage Jackson was just on Steve Cofield's radio show. His rant on Ariel Helwani was amazing, but the big news was that he isn't sure he wants to take the fight with Rashad so quickly. He said he has a couple injuries he wants to take care of and he doesn't know if he wants to fight so soon.

They may have to go with GSP-Alves after all, or pay Quinton more to take this fight. He only had a 4 week or so training camp for this fight, and to go right back into training sounded like a demoralizing thought to him.

Machida will have no problem fighting Evans.

Or they could replace that fight with Forrest/Lyoto....

He shouldn't take this fight, the dude just fought and now they want him to jump right back into preparing for a title fight. Lame

If he does or not I'm not sure,but according to UFC.com its scheduled for UFC 98 as main event.

I agree. IMO the UFC should just make Evans vs Machida the main event. Rampage can fight the winner of that fight.

If Rampage is not willing and/or able to fight in UFC 98 in May against Rashad then Lyoto will get the title shot, according to Dana in his newest vlog.
