Whether it is because of pride, injuries, or old age... he is now a one-dimensional threat.
Rampage's wrestling is like Gurgel's BJJ...
That Hendo fight is the only time I ever seen Rampage mix up his game. Like I have said countless times, Rampage is the dumbest fighter in the UFC. He has (had) so much potential to even be one of the p4p best but he always picked bad training camps (stupidity) and never mixed up his game even though he is incredibly well rounded and one of the strongest fighters physically the UFC has ever seen.
