Rampage Jackson-Wanderlei Silva at UFC 93 on B.J. Penn-Georges St. Pierre Undercard?

A third fight between Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Wanderlei Silva is one of the most talked-about potential match-ups in mixed martial arts, and the latest word is that it will take place at UFC 93, as the top fight on the undercard of the highly anticipated B.J. Penn-Georges St. Pierre match.

Kevin Iole of Yahoo reports that a "very good source" tells him Rampage-Wanderlei III is looking likely to happen at UFC 93, which takes place on January 31, the night before the Super Bowl. Penn-St. Pierre is the main event that night, and the presence of those two fights alone would make UFC 93 one of the biggest MMA cards ever.

Silva beat Rampage twice in Pride, with a first-round TKO in 2003 and a second-round knockout in 2004. But a lot has changed in the last four years, and I think Rampage would probably be the favorite going into their third fight. If they do fight again in early 2009, it'll be worth the wait.
