#1 Rashad Evans vs. Rampage Jackson
The frustrating battle between Rashad Evans and Rampage Jackson – which looking back, was not as loathsome as individuals set aside a few minutes – is an inquisitive case in light of the fact that the promotion for it appeared to go into overdrive basically in light of the fact that the fans were made to sit tight for it for such quite a while.
The fight between the two 205lbers started in mid 2009 – Rampage vanquished Evans’ partner Keith Jardine and was then pegged to test Evans for the Light-Heavyweight title he held at the time. Be that as it may, meanwhile, Evans lost his title to Lyoto Machida by knockout.
The UFC were as yet enthused about making a Rampage/Evans battle, notwithstanding, and chose to name them – you got it – mentors for the tenth period of The Ultimate Fighter. The arrangement worked, as it rapidly turned out to be certain that the combine disdained each other, and various encounters occurred all through the season.
Tragically, however, Rampage chose to disappear of nonattendance from the UFC after the recordings had finished, and the possibility of the huge battle was racked. In this occasion however, the all-inclusive hold up just made the competition between the two all the more intense – and the fans considerably more urgent to at long last observe them square off.
At the point when Rampage chose to return in 2010, the battle was promptly reserved for UFC 114, and the promotion went wild. Rashad got out Rampage for stopping the UFC as he’d stopped in his PRIDE battles with Shogun Rua and Wanderlei Silva. Frenzy went considerably further, naming Rashad an ‘Uncle Tom’. What’s more, obviously, Dana White guaranteed a moment exemplary.
At last, however, the battle was definitely not. It began hot as Rashad nailed Rampage with a correct hand that made them reel, however at last, it descended to Rashad’s wrestling and cardio being excessively for a corroded Rampage to deal with, notwithstanding a late rebound in the third round.
Rashad won a consistent choice and was marked a “dull fighter” while numerous fans considered Rampage cleaned up after his poor execution. Dana White appeared to be totally baffled with the entire thing, in any case, after such a huge publicity work anything besides a Rocky style battle was continually going to be a killjoy.
