Rampage / Wand 3 on NYE

Yesterday, the UFC pulled an Ireland event out of it’s ass, complete with headlining bouts all ready to go. Now they’re following up by announcing a bunch of NYE bouts we’ve all been waiting for:

On Wednesday, he at least got the top three fights of UFC 92 finalized. The co-main events will feature the interim heavyweight title match between champion Antonio Rodrigo and Frank Mir. Forrest Griffin will defend the light heavyweight title against Rashad Evans and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will meet Wanderlei Silva, who defeated him twice when they fought in PRIDE.

I’m glad the UFC decided to add Jackson vs Silva onto the card. While Griffin vs Evans should be an interesting match, it lacks sizzle. And don’t even get me started on Big Nog vs Fat Mir. If Mir manages to win that fight I’ll do naked jumping jacks outside of a police station. So I’m glad there’s a fight on there that’s got all the ingredients to make me a happy MMA fan.
