UFC 96: Jackson vs. Jardine was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). It was held in Columbus, Ohio on March 7, 2009 at Nationwide Arena.


The card was headlined by a Light Heavyweight bout between Quinton Jackson and Keith Jardine. Following the main event, Rashad Evans, training partner of Jardine and then-Light Heavyweight Champion, entered the cage and publicly challenged Jackson. It resulted in a long-standing feud between the two that would not be settled until 2010.[2]

A Welterweight bout between Dustin Hazelett and Ben Saunders was originally scheduled for this card, but was cancelled when Hazelett was injured.[2]

Saunders was then scheduled to face replacement Ryan Madigan, but that bout was also cancelled when Saunders suffered a shattered toe in training.[2] Madigan eventually faced Tamdan McCrory on this card.
