Rampage Jackson has been handed a fight with Glover Teixeira at UFC 153 in Rio De Janeiro.

Jackson, who has been tipped to leave the UFC after his next fight, will be making his first appearance since losing to Ryan Bader at UFC 144 during February.

Prior to that, he was beaten in the fourth round by Jon Jones at UFC 135 - meaning he is without a victory since beating Matt Hamill in May 2011.

Brazil's Teixeira is considered a dangerous opponent, and he won on his UFC debut against Kyle Kingsbury during May.
