Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will likely return to action at UFC 91 on Nov. 15 from the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Oregon, according to statements made by UFC President Dana White to YahooSports.

Jackson who is out on bail after being charged with four felonies in a July hit and run spree through the streets of Costa Mesa, CA.

No opponent has been announced, but rumors of him fighting Shogun Rua or Wanderlei Silva have been circulating on various websites.

UFC President Dana White:

“Of course he’ll fight….If he was doing drugs, if he had been drunk, if he had gone out there and done what he did because he was pissed off at someone, that would be a completely different story. But he was ill. And in this company, we support our friends and anyone who works for us when they’re ill and have problems. He was ill, the incident occurred, and now he’s fine…..Rampage feels awful about the woman’s baby, but he had nothing to do with it. And the (traffic incident) occurred because he was very ill and not with him in control of his faculties.”

    Just out of curiosity, what was his illness? I'm not saying it's not true, but I have been ill before and never did anything like that. If he was really ill then I hope he wil be ok to come back and fight
