The highly anticipated bout between light heavyweights Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad “Sugar” Evans has pushed to a later date. Apparently, Jackson will have to postopone this fight until early 2010 as he is set to work on his lead role in the film remake of ‘The A-Team.” The 31-year old fighter from Tennessee will star as “B.A. Baracus,” made famous by Mr. T back in the 1980’s.
UFC President Dana White has not announced a new date for their fight, but we’ll make sure to keep you guys updated on that once we’re informed.
Snip from Rashad Evans:
“I am (going to fight Quinton), but not when I’m supposed to. He’s kind of getting sidetracked taking other opportunities above fighting. They haven’t nailed down any dates, but they did say it would happen after the new year. I think they we’re waiting to speak with Quinton’s guys to see when exactly he feels he should be ready. If it couldn’t happen at all, I would definitely want to fight somebody else, but I know the UFC definitely has a lot invested in us fighting each other. It makes no sense for us to fight somebody else because then all that they have created is just a waste.”
