UFC has right to match Rampage's next offer

source: fuel.tv

From his UFC on FOX 6 post-fight interview:

"I said before the fight and I'll say it again after. [Jackson] needs to work for people who can make him happy. I feel like we've done everything in our power for Rampage to make him happy. If there's somebody out there who can treat him better than we have, that's awesome [but] I do have the right to match."

The length of his matching period is unknown at this time, but we know of at least one promoter who's interested.

It probably violates some kind of law but great idea! I think it would actually help out Bellator more than the UFC and I think Dana would agree to it.

Dana can probably match any MMA offer, but if he goes to boxing. I doubt it.

Who do you guys think is a bigger draw on spike, Eddie or rampage. I would guess more casual fans know rampage than Eddie. I dont think they'd ever trade one for the other.

Fuck it, throw in Clay Guida too. Sounds like a deal to me.

Sounds like unless Rampage is overpayed Dana is fine with keeping him. Honestly I think once he sees what else is out there Rampage will be asking to come back anyways

If you ignore what Dana said about the Alvarez situation, then sure.
