If this was nearly anyone but Rampage, I could appreciate some valid frustration here, but after the UFC 86 situation and how ZUFFA handled it and stood by him and Rampage's subsequent long-term bone-headedness, I think he's gone faaaaaar out of his way to burn bridges with ZUFFA, to a degree where I think it's obvious that they aren't going to be cordial, accessible and agreeable to his "final requests" and will look to stick it to him on the way out(hence the Glover match-up).
In a way, I liken this pettiness to the "Greatest Strikeforce Moment" vote from Saturday night, where "The Losses of Fedor Emelianenko" was shown over and over again, akin to ZUFFA spiking the football on somebody they didn't do good business with. Similarily to why Frank Shamrock is basically invisible from UFC lore despite being one of their most dominant champions EVER.
It isn't a surprise that ZUFFA is being petty on the way out the door, it isn't the first nor the last fighter who they'll look to "make an example of"....

yes, I don't much care for the way Zuffa handles sponsors and the gross amount $$$ they charge for a fighter to wear their sponsors name into the cage. I have no problem with the company making money, though that move to charge fighters sponsors was one of pure greed and I found it deplorable.
