We told about what happened earlier today. MMA Weekly issued a report suggesting Thiago Silva was off the UFC 130 card with Quinton Jackson because of an injury. Then his people shot back via Tatame magazine that Silva was not injured and that they hadn't heard a thing about off the card and were looking forward to facing Rampage at the fight.
Since then the story has taken a few twists.
First, Rampage's people at the Wolfslair hadn't heard a thing about it:
Jackson’s representatives at The Wolfslair also reacted with surprise when contacted by Fighters Only, saying it was the first they had heard of it.
According to Rashad Evans' manager @malkikawa, Evans has not been offered a fight against Rampage Jackson at UFC 130.
Ok, interesting. The rub is this: Damon Martin from Weekly is a solid reporter with legitimate sources. I've got no idea how this report got flubbed or if the people involved are playing coy for strategic effect. More details as they come in.
