Shannon Briggs is fighting Rampage Jackson on February 17th in Florida

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Shannon Briggs is fighting Rampage Jackson on February 17th in Florida.

The Cannon’ and the former UFC champion have teased a potential fight against each other for years now. In 2021, Shannon Briggs and Rampage Jackson even coached in the short-lived Triller Triad Combat, against one another. At the time, the two heavyweights stated that a fight between the two was on the books for 2022.

However, it didn’t happen, nor did it happen in 2023. Instead, Shannon Briggs seemed destined to slowly fade into retirement, while Rampage Jackson targeted a comeback in MMA. Instead of boxing, the former UFC titleholder signed with the United Fight League, with a return tentatively set for late 2023.

It can be recalled that Rampage and Briggs nearly brawled during the weigh-in of the Triad Combat event last November, where the two coached opposite each other. Triad Combat is a new competition initiated by Triller Fight club that features bouts between boxers and MMA fighters, with battles fought inside a specially-designed triangular ring while utilizing two-minute rounds.

Jackson’s team emerged victorious at the end of the evening, despite former heavyweight title challenger Kubrat Pulev stopping ex-UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir in the main event. Using team scoring, Rampage’s MMA team defeated Briggs’ boxing squad 14-11 to win the inaugural Triad Combat event.

Tomorrow, everybody’s gonna see what happens to MMA fighters,” Briggs stated to Jackson earlier today. “And in February I’m going to show you again.”

In the event that the fight is made, it will be the first for both men in years. For his part, Shannon Briggs has been out of the ring since a knockout win over Emilio Zarate in 2016. Meanwhile, Rampage Jackson has been inactive since a 2019 knockout loss to Fedor Emelianenko.
