Look what he did to Anderson Silva. He did a great job holding him down, making a boring fighter out of a decorated champion, for five rounds. After the fight, I see that Anderson Silva didn't have a mark on him. Not a mark.
Yep but when Rogan screams and acts like Chael's GNP is damaging... fans eat it up.

That wouldnt be the best case scenario for Rampage... but even if Rampage didnt come at his best.... it is still a very winnable fight for him...
Do you see Glover getting him down.... If you watch Glover's fights, he favors his hands and comes out very aggressive... He could outstrike rampage, but that is still a very dangerous game to play... especially if he wants to trade hands with him.

He is entitled to his opinion on sonnen but at the same time needs to realize what he's done as well. He has spoken out against MMA and the UFC in previous months. His "rampage" was well documented and had just come off the heels of a highly publicized title fight. That hurt the image of MMA fighters more than the motormouth has. They're both criminals. They both run their mouths too much. They have both done things that tarnish the image of the average MMA fighter.
Pot calling the kettle black.
Rampage's actions make him look foolish, it doesnt necessarily reflect on the sport... sure you'll have the idiots in power who run with shit like that... but MMA is far beyond the point where that could really hurt it imo...
While Sonnen is setting a precedent that will lead to a lot more trash talking and fights being made based upon the resulting saleability.
It may hurt the "sport" aspect somewhat, but if it actually helps the sport get more eyes on it, then it may not be such a bad thing....

Jones simply commented on the far fetched idea... Dont think that was anywhere near a possibility... DC is having a tough enough time getting to the UFC in the first place... Would they put a guy who never fought in the UFC or at LHW for that matter on TUF as a coach? and his last time trying to cut a good amount of weight... almost died...
Yep... the reason DC isnt on TUF is because Jones didnt want him there...
I guess we need someone else to claim that Jones is ducking, now that he is fighting Sonnen.
