New, 4 comments

The following fights were confirmed by Kevin Iole of Yahoo told to him by UFC President Dana White.

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson will face Wanderlei Silva for the third time. These two fighters have squared off twice before in PRIDE with Silva winning both fights in devastating fashion. Also officially added is the Forrest Griffin vs. "Sugar" Rashad Evans for the UFC LHW title. Griffin the Season 1 winner of TUF will defend his LHW title against the Season 2 TUF winner in Evans. The main event for this card is Frank Mir vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for the UFC HW title. Also rumored for this card are the following fights:

  • Cheick Kongo vs. Mustapha Al-Turk(HW)

  • CB Dollaway vs. Jorge Rivera(MW)

  • Dean Lister vs. Yushin Okami(MW)

  • Ryo Chonan vs. Brad Blackburn(WW)

When Jackson/Silva was rumored to be on the UFC 91 card with Lesnar/Couture I was really looking forward to that card. However, now with this one fight in particular being moved to UFC 92...along with two title fights? This is the type of end of year 'stacked' card that we have come to expect from the UFC. Nice job Joe Silva.
