PostSubject: Injunction Lifted, Rampage vs Maldonado Fight is Back On for UFC 186 this Saturday   Tue Apr 21, 2015 9:10 pm

Quote :
Giving the ravaged UFC 186 fight card new life, a New Jersey court on Tuesday reversed the original injunction that barred Quinton “Rampage” Jackson from fighting at UFC 186 this Saturday.

Rampage broke his contract with Bellator late last year after he felt the promotion had not lived up to the terms of their agreement. Shortly thereafter, he signed with UFC and was scheduled to fight Fabio Maldonado at UFC 186.

Bellator then filed for and, two weeks ago, was granted an injunction to bar Rampage from fighting at Saturday’s event in Montreal while their dispute played out in the courts. The UFC moved swiftly and inked former pro hockey player Steve Bosse to fill the void.

In a rather surprising move on Tuesday, a New Jersey court lifted the injunction, thus allowing Rampage to return to the UFC 186 co-main event slot.

“We are happy with the decision from the New Jersey Court allowing Rampage to fight in Montreal this Saturday night,” UFC President Dana White said. “I am looking forward to seeing Rampage back in the Octagon.”

It was a significant boost to a card that had been ravaged. The original main event rematch between TJ Dillashaw and Renan Barão for the bantamweight championship was nixed due to a Dillashaw injury. A planned bout between Rory MacDonald and Hector Lombard was scrapped when Lombard tested positive for steroids in a drug test following his last fight. Then, Bellator’s injunction scratched Rampage’s return, leaving the card a shell of its original line-up.

The UFC 186 card now features Demetrious Johnson putting his flyweight belt on the line against Kyoji Horiguchi in the main event, Rampage vs. Maldonado, and Michael Bisping vs. CB Dollaway.

Wow.....this is actually rather surprising! I figured this would drag on for months without a resolution.



Still not buying this card though.....

I might put some money on Maldonado as a dog. I bet Rampage stopped training 2 weeks ago.

They did it for one reason and one reason only:
He was making a lot of $$$ for Bellator.

All they're going to do is give him some mid-level fights and maybe throw him in there against a beast and let him get handled once in awhile to lower his drawing power even further and then release him again. So even if Bellator for some reason then picks him up again, his value will be even lower.

I could get on board with that. Not a bad idea at all.

I honestly thought he looked better and far more rounded than he ever has! Can't wait to see him in there again. Rashad is already talking like he wants in stating "If I fought 'that Rampage,' I'd catch him with a 'highlight reel' knockout"... he'd actually have to make it to the octagon first though.

Rashad just tore his MCL, cracked two ribs, and got a staph infection by saying that, and will be sidelined indefinitely.
