This... Is... The Rematch: Rampage v Rashad II Set For UFC 130

Rampage Vrs Rashad UFC 2010 * BEST FACE OFF * ! Who's The Bitch ! REMATCH PLEASE (via elprimersalvatrucho)

MMA Weekly has the scoop:

Sources have indicated to as of Wednesday that Thiago Silva has been forced to withdraw from his upcoming fight at UFC 130, and will be replaced by none other that former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans

The Team Jackson fighter wasn’t seriously injured, and was expected to be ready to come back as early as May and it looks like he’ll get his wish.

Rashad was originally slated to face current champ Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, but tweaked his knee in training before being replaced by Jon "Sent To Earth By God In a Bubble" Jones.  Rampage-Rashad I did over a million PPV buys last May, and even though I believe (despite Rampage's improvements against Machida) this will pretty much be a replay of that fight, I'm amped for the match up.
