    Just let the Mo and Page fight happen.. Mo would probably hand it to Page at this point.

    i would like to see him fight spong that would be interesting. i assume he would get beat but spong is new to mam so seeing him fight a vet like rampage, albeit way past his prime, would be something id like to see.

    i think newton would beat rampage in an incredibly boring shitty fight.

    i can maybe see rampage beating mo because of mo's idiotic tendency to fight with his hands down. if page can knock down beltran who has an iron chin, i believe he could do the same to mo.

    This. Rampage had no answer to being held against the fence but otherwise didn't look that bad. Beltran is not the best fighter but has an iron jaw and Rampage dropped him hard. I didn't think it looked like he was gassing at all. When he was being held against the fence, had trouble getting off but didn't want to waste energy. He still looked pretty good at the end of round 1.

    Thought he actually looked in good shape. Has a fight cancelled 2 weeks ago and then a new fight scheduled, and probably thought why bother cutting the weight. Yes, unprofessional, but I can see his point.

    Was page hurt, unmotivated, or just past his prime; or all three.

    I like the minatov vs volcov fight. Loved the missed belly to belly.

    I always enjoy the pitbull brothers.

    Ok card for entertainment value

    Got to see the fight and what a joke. Dude didn't even fight st his weight classs. Plodding forward throwing punches and looking foolish. Looks like they want to make Rampage to Bellator what Kimbo was to Elite XC.

    Only fight I git to see and from the sounds of it I didn't miss out on anything.

    I think that horrible performance might actually make it attractive to Henderson...pop over to Bellator, get paid heavily and avenge a bullshit controversial loss. Henderson could actually be the guy for Bellator that they'd love rampage to be.

    I'm betting Tito begs for a fight with Jackson, and would be willing to fight hurt this time.

    Regardless of what people say about Tito, when he's in the cage he cuts a slick pace and would undoubtedly outwork Rampage. Last night made me laugh, because I kept saying, "If 'Page can't even make 205 for a glorified can fight, and looks this lethargic and muddled against Beltran, Tito beats him!". I could really see Tito gassing Page and riding him to an ugly, yet 100% winnable GNP decision. Heck, I think Rampage would quit on his stool after the second if Tito could uncork one round of his GNP.

    That said, Tito is physically done and for every excuse he's given and all his injuries, his body is a legitimate trainwreck.

    As for Hendo, we could definitely see that "Hendo resurgence/anti-fathertime" narrative SF was giving us during his Babalu/Fejaio/Fedor run once again, even if it is against subpar competition like Rampage, Tito, Newton etc. Personally, I'd love to see Hendo/Mo, but I think all those injuries have really marginalized Mo's once promising career.

    The only concern with investing in Hendo(outside of his age and diminishing results), is that his wading, lumberssome-style these days could potentially be out finessed by guys on their bikes able to avoid that "HBomb".

    RJJ may actually be the best LHW in BFC lol.

    Shhhhhh not in my mind especially Hominick!!! He's still winning fights like he did in UCC and TKO and really it's only Hominick, Goulet (thank god!) and Carwin that are retired.
