Quinton Jackson and Lyoto Machida will headline the November 20 pay-per-view card. Although a location for the card has yet to be determined, sources close to the UFC confirmed to mmajunkie.com that the match will happen.
Jackson also made the announcement known through his twitter account saying, "Almost ready to sign the bout agreement. I would tell y'all who I'm gonna get down with, but I can't spell his name. Hahaha."
Jackson (30-8, 5-2 UFC) is coming off of a loss to Rashad Evans at UFC 114, after posting consecutive wins over Wanderlei Silva and Keith Jardine. "Rampage" will be fighting for the second time since March, when he signed a new 6-fight contract extension to stay with the promotion.
Machida (16-1, 8-1 UFC) is reeling from his first defeat in which he lost the light heavyweight championship to Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 113. This fight was a rematch from the hotly contested decision Machida earned back at UFC 104. Prior to the loss, "The Dragon" had strung together 8-straight victories over accomplished fighters such as Tito Ortiz, Thiago Silva and Rashad Evans.
The winner of this bout could become the number-one contender for the light heavyweight championship, but the UFC has not confirmed that yet.
