Quinton “Rampage” Jackson could quickly get the prospect to drag even with Wanderlei Silva.
Bellator is concentrating on a fourth matchup between the longtime rivals for a yet-to-be-determined occasion, president Scott Coker advised MMAjunkie’s Steven Marrocco on Monday.
The event comes shortly after Brazil’s Gazeta do Povo reported Silva was spearheading efforts to get the matchup booked in his native Curitiba for late 2018. He and Jackson have each just lately voiced their curiosity in squaring off as soon as extra.

All three fights between Jackson and Silva have been contested at 205 kilos, though the previous now competes at heavyweight. Bellator has not but settled on a weight class for his or her fourth tilt, says Coker.
Silva knocked Jackson out twice below the Satisfaction FC banner in 2003 and 2004, efficiently defending the his 205-pound title within the latter bout. “Rampage” avenged one of many defeats with a first-round KO 4 years later at UFC 92. Each fighters are coming off unanimous resolution losses to Chael Sonnen – Silva’s in his Bellator debut in June, and Jackson’s within the opening spherical of the promotion’s heavyweight tourney in January.
