UFC 130 Fight Card Finalized at 10 Bouts; Rampage vs. Hamill Headlines

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

The fight card for UFC 130 has been finalized at 10 bouts, that is, of course, barring any more injuries or other issues in the two weeks that left until fight time.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson heads the card in a bout with “Ultimate Fighter” alum Matt Hamill. Jackson was originally slated to face Thiago Silva, who fell out of the bout following a drug test related revocation of his license. Silva admitted to providing a sample “inconsistent with human urine” at UFC 125.

Rampage vs. Hamill replaces the original UFC 130 headliner, a third bout between current lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and challenger Gray Maynard. Both fighters suffered injuries, forcing them off the card.

The side effects of their dropout also pushed a heavyweight feature bout between TUF 10 winner Roy Nelson and former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir into the co-main event slot.

The UFC 130 main card on pay-per-view now sits like this:
-Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (31-8) vs. Matt Hamill (10-2)
-Frank Mir (14-5) vs. Roy Nelson (15-5)
-Stefan Struve (21-4) vs. Travis Browne (10-0-1)
-Thiago Alves (18-7) vs. Rick Story (12-3)
-Brian Stann (10-3) vs. Jorge Santiago (23-8)

    Worst Card ever !

    I actually still like this card. Obviously it would have been better with Edgar vs Maynard, but there are still some appealing fights on the card.

    This is another card that could have justifiably been shown on Spike TV.
