Rampage Jackson vs. Ryan Bader At UFC 144 in Japan

The former light heavyweight champion will meet Ryan Bader at UFC 144. UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta confirmed the matchup to ESPN.com.


After not being included in the Japan show Rampage responded with a tweet posted Tuesday. Jackson wrote, “It don’t look like I’m fighting in Japan, which I’m not happy about at all.” Afterwards the UFC rethought stiffing Jackson and made his wishes come true.

The UFC 144 card will take place at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, which seats approximately 20,000. It’s the first UFC event scheduled for Japan since UFC 29 in December 2000.
