Rashad Evans vs. Rampage Jackson 2?

In a recent tweet, Evans pitched a rematch with Jackson.

“Hard to believe this happened almost 14 years ago,” Evans tweeted. “Time to run it back [Rampage]?”

Jackson was scheduled to take on former WBO heavyweight boxing champion Shannon Briggs on June 1, but the fight was called off due to undisclosed reasons. It’s uncertain if Jackson still intends to return to fighting to make his boxing debut.

Evans and Jackson are two of the most accomplished fighters in UFC light heavyweight history. Evans entered the UFC Hall of Fame in 2019, and Jackson could potentially enter the UFC Hall of Fame in the next few years.

Jackson retired from MMA after a loss to Fedor Emelianenko at Bellator 237. The loss to Emelianenko came after a second-round knockout of Wanderlei Silva at Bellator 206.

Tensions between Jackson and Evans have appeared to cool off in recent years, and both fighters have changed since their UFC 114 clash. But, if a rematch takes place, expect more fireworks to surface in this all-time rivalry.
