Following a very close split decision win over former champion, Lyoto Machida, UFC President Dana White says that Jackson will probably be next in line for a title shot in the light heavyweight division.
“There are so many guys at 205 (pounds). ‘Rampage’ is probably next in line. ‘Rampage’ is still in the mix.”
“We’ve got Jon Jones and Ryan Bader and the 5th, which is going to be a great fight and catapults one of those guys to the top five. There’s so many great guys in the 205-pound division.”
“The big problem has been ‘Shogun’s’ injury has been clogging up the division. Now he’s healthy and going to fight, and we’ll get everything rolling.”
