Wow. When rampage jackson says your personality is a drain on the legitimacy of the sport, that's saying something
I'm not sure what the something
is, but it's definitely something
that smells bad. That being said:
He sounds like he practices his stuff in the mirror, and then he goes out and says it.
...uhm...rampage? are you really expecting us to believe that's not exactly
the same thing you do?

No, it's not just rampage.
There are lots of fans who feel that sonnen is terrible for the industry; fans who feel the sport has outgrown dana white and want it to get to the next level; fans who want to be able to go to shows that aren't plagued by assholes who don't know anything about the sport.
Just because rampage isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer doesn't mean he's off base here. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
There's no doubt as to why Chael has earn his shot. He's beaten any and all he's fought lately, except superman himself, and then, in both fights, did as much or more damage than any fighter ever has in the ufc. The professionals at what they do have decided that he is the number 1 contender, end of story. Now we just get to wait and see if Chael can do what he did with superman, and who knows? even get lucky with his kryptonite. |
Rubbing people the wrong way is his kryptonite, then he gets in there and doesn't let people think about it, that's why you will pay your hard earned money to see this man fight. He demands it and you will obey. You have no choice. You will adore him and no other the night he fights, your wives and girlfriends will feel cheated on.
No use denying it the day afterwards, as if you didn't sneek and pay to be his slave the night of the fight. You love it, and inwardly delight that they have put this man pitted against your mma god, and your groans of protestation are secretly that of pleasure and enthrallment. They all hear your squeals, but they know you, they have given you 100 to 1 odds, what more could you ask? The dragonslayer is here, you know of no other who has come so close, yet you complain. Let the dragonslayer have at it, the man is willing at all times, do as Saul did, let David have a go at the giant. And all you standers by, why not enjoy? but if not, thanks for the entertainment you add.
Is English your second language? It seems like you've learned to write by only reading second-rate superman comics and those teen-girl vampire books.
I can feel my IQ going down just by re-reading this nonsense.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
