Dude obviously didn't train properly. Just really puffy with no definition. If he loses he should reeeeeeally look at retirement

Rampage's heart hasn't been in this for years. He's also fed up with it to boot.

He only fights for a check now. I don't think he even wants to keep fighting, but I guess the money's been worth it.

The say "never bet against x fighter."

Based on his lack of motivation and lack of dedication, I would say "never bet for Rampage."

He was very motivated against Jones recently and looked in great shape. If he still takes care of himself like that he can beat anybody on any given night and he sure as hell wouldn't have had much trouble with Bader.

I do not agree with you.

And so I will repeat myself.

He hasn't been motivated in years.

Would he have liked to win the fight? Of course. But he isn't the same fighter he once was. I'm sure age, injuries, physical decline, etc. also have something to do with it, surely, but he hasn't had his heart in the game for years.

But who knows, maybe I'm wrong. I guess if you can't get up for a title fight though you really, really need to hang up the gloves, so you may be right.

I'm not gonna disagree about his inconsistency. Against Machida, great shape and fought smart and well. Against Jones in phenomenal shape and survived the longest, negated Jones' wrestling for a long time etc. That's the guy I wanna see every time he fights, and I think that's when he is a top 5 LHW in the world. Other times like last night I just gotta cringe and give up on him.

Maybe put him up against Shogun next as atleast if he comes unprepared, he will get his ass kicked badly and that's atleast fun to watch.

I think his Machida performance was an anomaly given how Rampage has looked in recent years.

Against Jones he had absolutely no game plan. Seriously, he ran in there thinking he was going to land some looping hooks on Jones...

Rampage not caring about fighting is not new. The last great performance he had was defending the strap against Dan Henderson.

Hope they put him in there with a striker. Maybe he wins, maybe he gets destroyed, but at least it'll be more fun than seeing him look bored against wrestlers. It's probably not the case, but I hope he'd show more desire to fight if it was against the sort of guy who will stand and bang with him.

Rampage-Stann would be good if Stann ever moves back up. Would also like to see Rampage-Feijćo.

He injured his knee which is the only way bader could of beat him in the first place. That's why he missed weight.

He can still beat anybody in the world not named Jon Jones imo.

Rampage is one of the most overrated fighters in the history of MMA. He's a nothing fighter.

Why is that ? I don't find anything special in his fighting style. He's like an overdosed mad dog.

With wins against Dan Henderson, Chuck Liddell, Lyoto Machida, Wanderlei Silva, Ricardo Arona, Kevin Randleman, Matt Lindland...yeah sure.

When he is motivated and in shape he is a real force. He definetely needs to retire after one or two fights though, hes had quite a long career, he seems to be getting injured and lacks that sort of motivation he once had. Dude looked fat and slow against Bader due to injury (remedy this with swimming?

Completely agree with that. Even I'm not a fan of his style, he was one of the most electrifying fighters to watch, especially during PRIDE years. Although I can't count him as a mixed martial artist.

Lmao at the irony of this post with bute as your avatar.

Butes only decent wins are a shot Glenn Johnson and C level fighter in Andrade.

While Rampage beat P4P MMA ATG Dan Henderson which automatically *****s on bute not to mention the rest of his resume.

What a poor attempt of divagation. Cringeworthy post. We are not talking about how bad or how good Bute is.
