Rampage

The injury bug strikes again! This time, it has taken a bite out of one of the most star-studded cards of 2012. On Tuesday afternoon, UFC president Dana White reported Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (Pictured) has suffered an undisclosed wound that will force the former light heavyweight champ out of his UFC 153 shootout against Glover Teixeira.

The scrap was to mark Rampage’s final fight inside the Octagon. After dropping a unanimous decision defeat to Ryan Bader at UFC 144, he went on a worldwide tour blasting the UFC for their inadequate pay structure and lack of appreciation.

The 34-year-old then demanded to be released from the promotion, but UFC officials said they can go their separate ways after he fulfills the last bout on his contract.

Rampage was forced to undergo surgery on both of his knees in March and has been on the mend ever since.

Teixeira’s long-awaited big league debut had been postponed due to visa issues, but the Brazilian made up for lost time by quickly disposing of Kyle Kingsbury at UFC 146. The 32-year-old hasn’t lost a match since March of 2005, rattling off 16 straight victories during that span.

No word if Teixeira will remain in the lineup or if the promotion is scouring its roster for a suitable replacement. Quick, someone DON’T call Mauricio “Shogun” Rau…

UFC 153 takes place inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Here is the show’s revised roster:

Preliminary Card:

(Facebook 7PM ET/4PM PT)

Cristiano Marcello vs. Reza Madadi

Luiz Cane vs. Chris Camozzi

Sergio Moraes vs. Renee Forte
