UFC President Dana White talks about the signing of Jake Shields; Considers Machida-Rampage showdown

UFC boss Dana White shared his thoughts about an array of subjects, speaking at the UFC 114: Rampage vs Jackson post-fight press conference. White provided his analysis for the situation regarding the future of Jake Shields, saying “Strikeforce suck, and don’t. He is coming here”.Jake Shields’ contract will expire during the next weeks, as a future match-up against Georges St. Pierre or Anderson Silva is definitely a possibility.

As for the UFC 114 main eventer Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, White revealed that he is considering the possibility of the showdown against Lyoto Machida, who tasted the first loss of his career against Shogun Rua at UFC 113 in Montreal.

Next Ultimate Fighting Championship attraction will be UFC 115: Liddell vs Franklin, held at the at General Motors Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. According to various reports, UFC will return to England this Autumn, with the entertaining UFC 120 fight card, that will be held at the O2 Arena in London.

    Another wrestler joins the UFC. Yea!!! He will create interesting matchups for awhile unless he starts losing and that’s a strong possibility.

    Hell yeah!!! Bring GSP vs Koscheck to Pittsburgh!!! I’m from the Pittsburgh area I always go out to watch UFC events and its always almost impossible to get a table to watch the fights. I had to stand for the entire UFC 114 and so did a lot of other people but I don’t think anybody minded. There are definitely plenty of MMA fans here. Mixed feelings about Kos- he’s a tough guy to like but you gotta root for the hometown kid. As a fighter he’s sometimes an exciting striker and sometimes a boring wrestler. BRING IT TO PITTSBURGH DANA!!

    Machida would be a good matchup for Rampage! Hopefully it will happen.

    At the end of the second video, why did he say “Hamill is a good fight for him next, then we will go from there” Speaking in reference to Jon Jones?

    Rampage vs any top LHW is a good fight!
    As long as he keeps fighting and gets back to his potential.

    Eventually we will see Rampage v Shogun 2

    I would kill to see Rampage vs Machida, that would be such a great fight for Machida to get his confidence back, cuz he would obviously dismantle Rampage in the first round…

    AlexSayhi are u crazy? C’mon Machida would never dominate Rampage thats for sure. He might win, but he has to be carefull. When he stands with Rampage, then its lights out for him. But we will see what happens. Maybe this fight will never happen. Who knows.

    If Rashad is that fast and cant touch Machida, I doubt Rampage would do much better.

    It never ceases to amaze me how powerful Dana has become, both in his own mind and in reality. I always think it’s some sort of fluke and his cussing on camera and petty infighting will cause him to crash back to earth in a big fireball, but what can I say, dude’s at the top and only getting bigger.

    I agree. Rampage vs Machida will be the same as Ortiz vs Machida. Even the newer leaner faster Rampage (who I like) will never catch him. Hell, Evans couldn’t catch him.

    rampage thinks machida sucks , so it would be cool if machida humiliate him and show him the gates of retirement.

    Lil Nog didn’t even win his last fight in my eyes so i think he is lucky to fight Rampage.

    I dont think he’s 2 fights away, if he beats 2 former champions then yeah maybe but I’d expect him to have to win at least 3 or 4 more to get there
