Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson Eyes Jan. 26 Meeting with Glover Teixeira at UFC on Fox 6



Quinton Jackson and Glover Teixeira will apparently get it on after all.

Jackson announced Tuesday night via Twitter that he will face the hard-hitting Brazilian at UFC on Fox 6, which is slated to take place at Chicago’s United Center on Jan. 26.

“Outside the cage, I hate no one. Life is too short for that,” Jackson wrote. “Inside the cage, my job is to destroy! Glover is done on Jan. 26 in Chicago.”

The light heavyweights were initially expected to meet on Oct. 13 at UFC 153, but “Rampage” was forced to withdraw from that fight due to injury. Headlined by a flyweight championship showdown between reigning titlist Demetrious Johnson and challenger John Dodson, UFC on Fox 6 will also see World Extreme Cagefighting alumni Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone square off in an anticipated lightweight duel.

Jackson, 34, has one fight remaining on his UFC contract. The former 205-pound titlist enters his confrontation with Teixeira riding back-to-back defeats, as Jackson was outpointed by Ryan Bader to kick off 2012 after failing to recapture his crown from new champion Jon Jones last year at UFC 135. Known for his power-punching and highlight-reel slams, the 42-fight veteran owns 14 of his 32 wins via form of knockout.

Teixeira, 33, is also considered one of the light heavyweight division’s hardest punchers. After Jackson pulled out of their UFC 153 meeting, the Brazilian instead faced countryman Fabio Maldonado, battering the resilient 32-year-old for two rounds before the cage-side doctor stepped in and halted the contest to save Maldonado from further punishment. Teixeira has not lost since 2005 and has seen the judges’ scorecards just three times in his 10 years as a pro.
