Quinton 'Rampage' JacksonThe UFC on Fox 6 card is filling up fast with the latest fight expected to take place on the Jan. 26 show in Chicago pitting Quinton “Rampage” Jackson against Glover Teixeira.

Jackson announced the fight via Twitter on Tuesday night.

“Outside the cage I hate no one. Life is too short for that. Inside the cage my job is to destroy,” wrote Jackson.

“Glover is done on Jan 26 in Chicago.”

Jackson is currently on the last fight of his current UFC contract, and he’s said for months that he intends to test free agency after his next bout.

Following an injury that postponed his fight at UFC 153 in Brazil, Jackson vowed to come back healthier with a renewed urgency for a dominant victory. He’ll get that chance when he fights at UFC on Fox 6 against a very tough prospect in Glover Teixeira.

Not since Jon Jones has the UFC light heavyweight division had the kind of hype that surrounds Brazilian phenom Teixeira.

A long time training partner of UFC legend Chuck Liddell, Teixeira now works with Team Blackhouse, where he works alongside fighters such as UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and former champion Lyoto Machida.

Teixeira has gone 2-0 thus far in his brief UFC career, but now he’ll get the chance to add the most impressive win to his resume when he faces Jackson in Chicago.

UFC officials have yet to officially announce the Rampage vs. Teixeira fight, but the UFC on Fox 6 card will go down on Jan. 26 from the United Center in Chicago.
