Quinton Jackson has been in the news a lot lately with his talk of using testosterone replacement therapy and, more recently, his talk that he wants to be released from the UFC. With everything that was going on it seemed that Jackson may be kept on the sidelines for a bit, but Dana White was on TV tonight to announce Rampage's next fight.

From UFC.com:

As reported on Fuel TV's UFC Tonight, UFC President Dana White has revealed that disgruntled former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson will face another former champ, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.

There has not been a date announced for the bout.

Rampage has stated that he only has one fight left on his deal and was told by Dana previously that the UFC would "allow" him to go elsewhere when the deal is up. So, this fight represents his last in the Octagon unless things change.

Knowing how quickly Rampage can seem to change his tune, it's not crazy to assume that this all could change in the coming months.

Watch MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani break the news after the jump.
