Rampage should get inside where he is the more powerful fighter and take Machida to the ground. It won't happen because Page is an idiot but the next best thing he can do is counter punch since that is the type of fighter he has always been, and quite successful at that. Unless you advocate a fighter going against everything he has done for the past 5 years I say Page should counter punch this fight, then find a new camp.
Either way Rashad wasn't taking the fight to Machida he was waiting for him to come in and I didnt say Silva was doing great but he didn't get ktfo while moving forward. I would also say that Rampage was not effective at all countering Rashad or Forrest. I would also consider moving inside and taking him down being the predator taking him the fight to him. Thanks for agreeing with me through your argument tho. Is your sig a picture of you right before you posted that?
