Evans sends Jackson back to the movies....

Ultimate Fighting Championships had what was perhaps their most hyped match ever this past Saturday.

The fighters, Rashad Evans and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson fought for the light heavyweight championship at the MGM Hotel in Las Vegas.

Evans got the better of Jackson, who had a feature role in the new A-Team movie remake, outpointing him and getting the unanimous decision win.

There had been a lot of "Pre-fight" hype leading up to this fight as both fighters, at least publicly expressed a lot of "Dislike" to each other. However, aside from an intense pre-fight staredown, it was a close, hard-fought fight and both fighters expressed nothing but respect for each other at the conclusion.
