Rampage vs Jardine?

I must have left the room and missed it, but during the PPV broadcast they announced Rampage Jackson will face Keith Jardine in the main event of UFC 96 in Columbus, Ohio. Previously it had been reported Jardine would fight Luis Cane at UFC 97. I guess the UFC ran out of options for UFC 96 and decided they had to schedule something people would care about.

I don't understand why Rampage took the fight. Maybe they offered him extra money, because you would think the former champion did enough at UFC 92 to warrant a shot at Rashad Evans and the Light Heavyweight Title.

dana is giving liddell a way to the belt. jardine wins a decision, chuck fights him again, boom chuck gets a title shot with wins over rua and jardine.

we all know chuck aint beating rampage. this will give him a chance to avoid him and get back in the picture.

I admit Jardine is a little erratic, some losses he should've had in the bag, but it cannot be ignored that he beat forrest via TKO and knocked out lidell. So c'mon give the guy a break, if he losses this one then maybe he doesnt have the chops.
