"Rampage," Teixeira meet in Chicago
A light heavyweight bout between Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Glover Teixeira seems to have found a card after the match up fell through at UFC 153.
The long-awaited bout will take place at "UFC on FOX 6" on January 26 in Chicago.
Jackson announced the news on Twitter, though the promotion has yet to make the contest official.
Outside the cage I hate no one. Life is too short for that. In side the cage my Job is to destroy! Glover is done on Jan 26 n Chicago..

Teixeira and "Rampage" would have met last month in Brazil, but the latter was forced off the card due to injury. The bout also would have been Jackson's final bout on his current contract.
He has voiced his frustrations with the promotion over the past year and is expected to walk away following the fight.
Teixeira stayed on the Brazil card, defeating Fabio Maldonado via technical knockout.
Following the bout, Jackson tweeted UFC president Dana White to express his desire to fight Teixeira. And White has apparently fulfilled that request.
