UFC Stars Rampage Jackson, Brock Lesnar Featured in Round 5 Versus Line by Tracy Hackler

Some of the biggest fights in recent UFC history will be commemorated later this year by some of the coolest little collectibles going.

The creative, Canadian power punchers from Round 5, a leading producer of officially licensed mixed martial arts figurines, recently unveiled prototypes of the company’s forthcoming “Versus” two packs capturing scenes from four key UFC matchups.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, currently co-starring in the summer blockbuster “The A-Team,” is showcased twice in the new line – in his title-losing battle against Forrest Griffin at UFC 86 and in his knockout victory over Wanderlei Silva at UFC 92.

Current heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar’s UFC 100 pummeling of Frank Mir and Chuck Liddell’s demolition of Tito Ortiz at UFC 66 also are featured. Each of the new two packs comes with an Octagon segment display stand.

The Versus series is slated to hit Toys R Us stores in the fall and other retailers later in the year.

For those fight fans who might not be familiar with Round 5’s work, do yourself a favor and check out the company’s website. The attention to detail and passion for the UFC is evident on every figure.
