Rampage Jackson’s UFC 186 Co-Main Event Bout in Limbo Until Tuesday

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is scheduled to return to the Octagon to face Fabio Maldonado at UFC 186 on April 25 in Montreal. Whether he’ll be allowed to fight, however, is another matter altogether.

Rampage broke his contract with Bellator in December, believing that he was within his rights to cancel his contract and re-sign with the UFC. He said that he was in a dispute with Bellator, who failed to respond within the requisite window that his contract specified, so he left.

Bellator, of course, disagrees with Rampage’s take on his contract and filed suit to get a preliminary injunction barring him from fighting on April 25. Bellator claims that Rampage breached his contract when he returned to the UFC.

A decision about the injunction was expected to come from New Jersey judge Karen L. Suter on Thursday, but the judge delayed her decision until Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET, leaving the UFC 186 co-main event in limbo until then.
