After a brief hiatus from the Octagon, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is back with a vengeance. Read what he had to say about playing the part of B.A. Baracus in the summer blockbuster The A-Team, settling an old score with “Shogun” Rua and how one flip-flop is the only thing that saved Rashad Evans from an early start to their grudge match at UFC 114.

Rashad Evans
“Suga” Rashad Evans shows of his sartorial side in our fashion feature this month and discusses his path to the Octagon, his rivalry with Rampage and his legacy in the sport. Evans shows there’s far more to him than what fans see in competition.

Rich Franklin
Stepping in for an injured Tito Ortiz, Rich “Ace” Franklin will face Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell this summer in Vancouver. Despite all the hype, it’s just another fight for the former UFC middleweight champion. “Chuck and I are both professionals and we both like to throw down,” says Franklin, “and that’s what’s going to end up happening.”

Shane Carwin
Sirius | XM shock jock Jason Ellis interviewed interim heavy weight champ Shane Carwin for a UFC exclusive interview. You don’t want to miss what Carwin had to say about trading blows with Brock Lesnar and, of course, fighting sharks. You could say the interview covers a lot of ground.

UFC Salutes the Troops
From auctioning off a tricked out custom UFC Camaro to benefit the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund to participating in USO tours, the UFC supports the members of the armed forces any way we can. This issue we even threw in a spread of beautiful women that invoke the pinup girls painted on the sides of WWII bombers.

Matt Serra shares a few grappling tips. We’ve got the inside dope on THQ’s new game UFC Undisputed 2010, high-tech paintball gear and a whole lot more.
