'Rampage' vs. Silva 3 in the works

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Wanderlei Silva have been told by the UFC that they will probably be fighting each other, Fighters Only Magazine reported Tuesday.

Anthony McGann, the co-owner of Jackson's new camp, the Wolfslair Academy, informed the UK-based MMA magazine that they're eyeing for the fight to take place in the New Year.

Contrary to rumors, McGann said UFC 91 "Couture vs. Lesnar" in November would be too early for both camps.

Jackson and Silva have met twice before with Silva winning both encounters in convincing fashion. In their last fight at PRIDE 28 "High Octane" on Halloween 2004, Jackson was left laying unconscious inbetween the ropes courtesy of Silva's devasting knees from the clinch.
