    I don't want either to lose, but it should be one helluva fight. Why not see a fight between 2 of the top fighters in the division where everything is on the line and they couldn't possibly have more motivation to win (and not lose)? I'm stoked.

Rather than building each fighter up again, and than have them fight each other or fight others.

    i am more concerned about Rampage at this point than Shogun. Rampage's legal troubles will likely affect his mind in training and in the fight. Personally i don't think he should be coming back this quick, sense it was only a couple of months ago that people were wondering where his head is at and i have a hard time believeing he would be coming into this fight even in decemeber fully prepared.
    The things is I guarantee you neither one of these guys want to fight a can or a decent guy who they should still easily beat. They want to fight only the best, reguardless of their condition, and I got a ton of respect for that. And besides if they put them up against a mid level/up and coming guy(ala Forrest) and they some how lost, everyone would claim that they only won because Rampage or Shogun were not at 100%.

    I am in the same boat as a lot of you. I don't want either of these guys to lose.


    Who knows what the hell will happen with Quinton if he does, and Shogun is in deep, deep trouble if he does.


    I wish they were both getting other fights just for their returns

    Rampage and Vera train together... but they did say they would fight if it was for the title.

    I'd rather see Rampage against Jardine and Vera/Shogun. Shogun vs Vera would be a good MT battle which I see shogun coming out on top. His aggressive MT skills is a lot to handle... hopefully he comes with the same fire he had in pride.

    Yeah, I agree with you on that. It sucks whenever there are 2 guys fighting and you don't want either to lose. Both have had disappointing losses to the same guy and to come back and lose again.. damn. Well, at least Rampage gets a chance at avenging one of the few losses he had in PRIDE.

    I guess part of me wishes this fight will happen just due to that alone, but either way, I think it'll be an amazing fight that a lot of people have been waiting for.

    I think Shogun would take it,in pretty devastating fashion,but not as easily or as quickly as he did in their previous fight. Rampage is a much smarter fighter now,and his strikings improved a ton.

    This cards looking insane thus far.
    Not only is Jackson smarter, but he has had more time to ajust to the UFC and its rules. I dont think Shogun has had enough time in the Cage to get use to the no soccer kick kind of rules. I say rampage by KO.

    Guess im crazy.

    I've thought a bout it a little more and this may be a little different than the LW scenario, they may not know how much each fighters got left and if one of them loses badly, they generate revenue for the other. My guess is Shogun is the ?, but a loss to him would look better than a loss to Jardine or Vera.
