Jackcon got his start in mixed martial arts over seas at Japans Pride Fighting Champions Ships , it was over seas that Rampage would be knowen for his crazy superman-like body slams, he even Knocked out Ricardo Arona with a body slam.
Like Rashad, Rampage has also held the UFC Light Heavyweight title, but it was taking away from him by the world famous fighter Forrest Griffin. Also just like Rashad, Ramapage was a very successful wrestler. It will be cool to see these guys go toe to toe.

Fighters have a back ground in wrestling, both fighters have knock out power in both hands, and also both fighters want to mangle the other one.
