This must have happened when I got up to take a piss after the Hathaway/Egan fight, but apparently it was announced during the UFC 93 broadcast that Keith Jardine and Quinton Jackson are fighting at UFC 96 (March 7th, Columbus). Not the most awesome main event, but that’s what they’re giving us. Maybe Rashad Evans isn’t quite ready for another fight ten weeks after his last one; maybe the UFC just wants a little more time to promote the next light-heavyweight title match; maybe Lyoto Machida‘s at the head of the line after all. Who knows. Will Jackson score a first-round KO, or will Jardine leg-kick his way to a decision? Oh, why can’t it be March 7th already?!?
