Wanderlei Silva and Rampage Jackson will supposedly be meeting inside the cage for the fourth time.

Silva posted a video on his official Facebook page today (Wed. June 20, 2018) and claimed he has been offered a main event clash against Jackson for Bellator MMA in California on a September 29th card that has yet to be announced:

”Like people say, it’s very hard for a good professional to retire,” Silva said. “I just got a call from Bellator inviting to be part of the Sept. 29 (card) against Quinton Jackson in the main event in California. It’s our fourth bout, I won two of the first three, so it’s 2-1 for me.”

This very well could be the main event for the California card, as Bellator and Viacom are set to hold a press conference in New York on June 26 to announce “a new landmark distribution deal.” They are also teasing “a monumental ‘can’t-miss’ event.”

Bellator MMA President Scott Coker, Jackson, and Silva are set to attend the presser.

Silva won the first two meetings with Jackson under the PRIDE banner, both via knockout in 2003 and 2004. They squared off for a third time in 2008 in the UFC, and Jackson won that fight via first-round knockout.

10 MMA Stars Who Had Plastic Surgery

Whether necessary or elected, these 10 MMA stars went under the knife for plastic surgery:

The post 10 MMA Stars Who Had Plastic Surgery appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Whether it’s for cosmetic, functional, or medical reasons, a number of MMA stars have opted to undergo plastic surgery over the years.

In this article we’ll take a look at 10 of them, revealing what procedures they had and what the end result looked like.

Pearl Gonzalez

If it had been left up to Pearl Gonzalez, nobody would have known that she had breast implants prior to her UFC debut at UFC 210 last year, but the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) had other ideas – and much to her embarrassment.

On the day of the weigh-ins, NYSAC officials informed the stunned Gonzalez that she wouldn’t be allowed to fight on the card due to her implants.

However, after taking a couple of minutes to get over the initial shock, Gonzalez told her team to stay focused and that she was determined to still compete.

The UFC then went to bat for Gonzalez and managed to smooth things over with the commission so that she could still fight on the card. Of course, by that stage word had gotten out about the situation and was being reported on far and wide.

“I don’t think I wanted the world to know about my surgery and to be talked about like this,” Gonzalez said at a hastily arranged press conference after her bout was green-lit, adding that, “I’m going to show the world that not only do I have breast implants, but I am a talented fighter.”

One of the most brutal rivalries in MMA history may have a fourth chapter between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Wanderlei Silva.

The two have fought three times before, twice in PRIDE FC, with Silva winning both of those bouts by knockout. However, “Rampage” got his revenge under the UFC banner, scoring a first-round knockout over Silva back at UFC 92.

Now, with both men under Bellator contract, Scott Coker is looking to put together a fourth fight between the two MMA legends (via MMA Fighting):

“That’s something that we’re talking to ‘Rampage’ about and talking to Wanderlei about. I would love to make that fight before the end of the year.

“We are working on the possibility of executing that fight down there.”

For his part, ”Rampage” is all for another fight with his old rival. Speaking to the press in February, Jackson made it clear as day that he would gladly accept another fight against “The Axe Murderer” should the opportunity present itself:

“I owe Wanderlei another ass whooping, I’ll tell you that. I know he’s not a heavyweight. The last time I fought him I knocked him out of the weight class. But he beat me twice. I only beat him once. I think I owe him another ass whooping.”

Coker says if the fight happens, it will likely occur at Bellator’s first-ever foray into the Brazilian MMA market. Under Coker’s presidency, Bellator has rapidly expanded into new territories like Israel and Italy. It’s only a matter of time before the Paramount-backed promotion makes its debut in Brazil, which has always been a hotbed of MMA talent.

”Rampage” currently fights between light heavyweight and heavyweight, most recently losing to Chael Sonnen in the first round of Bellator’s Heavyweight Grand Prix. Jackson has competed at heavyweight before, defeating Satoshi Ishii in 2016.

Silva has mostly fought at middleweight and catchweight bouts since dropping down from light heavyweight.

Who do you see emerging victorious between the two MMA legends in 2018 if they eventually meet under the Bellator banner?
