The UFC announced during today’s UFC 93 broadcast that light heavyweight contenders Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Keith Jardine will meet in the main event of UFC 96 on March 7th in Columbus, Ohio.

Earlier reports suggested that Jackson would meet Rashad Evans for the light heavyweight title in the UFC 96 headliner while Jardine, who was originally slated to be in action at UFC 96, was rumored to be meeting Luis Cane at UFC 97 in April.

With fellow 205-pound contender Forrest Griffin sidelined until late-Summer with a broken hand, the winner of the matchup is likely to challenger Rashad Evans for the light heavyweight title, potentially in the main event of UFC 100 in July.
