The main event is Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson (30-7) against ‘Suga’ Rashad Evans (19-1-1. They’re both former UFC light-heavyweight champions and it’s at Even -115 odds.

Evans was listed as a -130 favorite just a few days ago, which means the action is swinging towards Jackson.

The winner gets the next shot at current UFC light-heavyweight champion, Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua.

Jackson lost his light-heavyweight title to Forrest Griffin back in July 2008. It was a somewhat controversial decision, but he has rebounded with wins over Wanderlei Silva and Keith Jardine.

The Jardine fight came over a year ago, the hiatus due to injuries and filming the ‘The A-Team’ movie. Will Jackson be any less focused after experiencing the bright lights of Hollywood, or will he be extra motivated so that he wins and stays in the spotlight?

Evans won the light-heavyweight title from Griffin back in December 2008. He then lost to Lyoto Machida a year ago in a knockout, before rebounding with a unanimous win over Thiago Silva this past January (UFC 108). His last four fights have come in Las Vegas.

These fighters don’t like each and it’s not just pre-fight hype either. This was most evident when they were rival coaches during Spike TV’s ‘The Ultimate Fighter.’

Ultimately, this battle will be decided by power versus speed’ Jackson will try to knock him out, while Evans’ speed will help avoid him. Look for Evans to display a lot of his other skills, especially against a semi-rusty Jackson.

I think Evans should be the slight favorite.
