Should Rampage Jackson Be Allowed To Fight At UFC 91?

New, 10 comments

Rampage Jackson could fight again at UFC 91 when the UFC travels to Portland, Oregon. That's the scoop according to Yahoo Sports:

Though there has been much speculation that Jackson would fight Wanderlei Silva, White declined to comment. But a source close to the situation said a Jackson-Silva fight is unlikely. Silva has two wins over Jackson from their days together in the PRIDE Fighting Championship.

But Jackson will fight, likely on the Nov. 15 card in Portland, Ore., and the charges won’t impede him
My only question is...should Rampage be allowed to fight so soon? I've spoken with a few people and I'm getting mixed results on the situation. Personally, I think the following bits of information need to be taken into consideration.

  • Rampage was charged with 2 felonies and misdemeanor charges as well

  • Even though he was suffering from delirium, that was self inflicted by Rampage

  • Can he find proper training partner's and management since he split with Juanito Ibarra?

Chime in with your thoughts in either support of him fighting in November, or provide your reasons why he shouldn't be allowed to do so.

UPDATE: Rampage has signed with Wolfslair of the UK...also training home of Michael Bisbing.
