Page I hope you get your shit together. Good luck homie!
I support Rampage as well, I hope he does well at whatever he choose to do and is happy. So long as he strops bitching, although to be fair he is being asked questions and simply giving his opinion... even though most of us dont agree with it.
If he actually took MMA seriously now, and put in the time... I would still love to see him fight, weather in the UFC or another MMA org... guys like MO and AJ would be decent fights to start off with...
Everybody was talking about how rampage was in shape for his last fight... While that is good, I was never really worried about that. It is more how "sharp" he is technically. He really sucked in his last fight... His TDD was horrible, and he was rolling with shots, avoiding them, but throwing no counter... I didnt get it... I saw several times where he executed a nice slip or roll, yet didnt return fire....
I dont know the whole situation around him... but his game technically is severely lacking, especially in todays MMA. He can still be a top-10 ish guy, imo... but he really hasnt improved his game that much at all for the past 6 years or so... if anything his boxing has devolved, and he has lost a little bit of explosiveness with his age.
