Jackson_150 Former Ultimate Fighting Championship light-heavyweight champions Quinton "Rampage" Jackson of Irvine and  Lyoto Machida of Brazil have signed to fight a Nov. 20 main event at a site to be determined, UFC President Dana White told The Times on Wednesday.

Jackson is coming off a unanimous-decision loss to Rashad Evans in May after a long layoff to film "The A-Team." Earlier this year, Machida lost his belt in a rematch against countrymen Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.

White said he has yet to finalize a site for the bout.
