    Default Rampage: "Glover is too cowardly to try and stand with me"

    "Glover is a guy who says he's going to knock me out, stand with me," Jackson said. "Just like the other guys, he is too cowardly to do that. He is just trying to get me to focus somewhere else, have me train other areas. I'm smarter now. I found out he's basically just going to try to wrestle me, and I lost some respect for him."

    Jackson said he found out through "internet snitches" that Teixeira planned to impose his will on the ground and that he was "disappointed" in the news.

    This is expected to be Jackson's final UFC fight, as he said he does not plan to resign with the promotion after fulfilling his contract.

    I see Glover clipping Rampage and taking the opening to GNP his way to an RNC.

    Exactly, man its hard to be a fan of this guy anymore. I hope Glover tools him standing I really do. Then it'll be "MMA is for sissys because they can kick you and knee you and stuff". God Rampage is frustrating.

    I think people are getting ahead of themselves...

    Just because rampage complains about fighting wrestlers doesnt= he has bad TDD...

    He has some of the best TDD in the game...

    Look at how his wrestling has held up against great wrestlers like Linland, Hendo, Randallman, Liddell, Jones, Machida. and even Hammil... Evans got the takedowns on rampage to win the rounds, but they were hard fought. he was like 3/10 or something like that...

    The only fight Rampage was taken down with easy repeatedly was the Bader fight... where he has a blown knee and a bad weight cut.

    Since when did Glover become a good wrestler? I have yet to be impressed with his takedowns or overall wrestling game... Although his top game is sick and he does damage, not just control... If he gets on top of Rampage, he will land some viscous gnp and go for the sub... but that is going to be hard to pull off.

    Rampage was referring to Glover saying that he wanted to stand with Rampage. It is MMA, we know that, but a lie is a lie... even though we dont know anything for sure, based on what Glover said before and now this rumor...

    People criticized Rampage for the Hammil fight, He didnt like it either.... Yet he defended every single takedown... Matt refused to engage rampage standing... Its very hard to KO somebody when they refuse to stand with you, even if they arent getting the takedowns.

    Did you watch that fight? Dan kept initiating the clinch... Didnt he even say that the gameplan was to wrestle Rampage... Seems like its the other way around if anything.

    Obviously I was exagerating a bit, but regardless of who initiated the grappling game, Rampage still USED his(grappling game). True enough?

    Why didnt Rampage circle away instead of taking Dan down 5+ times? Because he saw an opening and he went for it. Like any fighter would.

    Bottomline: Rampage is a hypocrite. He can take Dan down and thats OK, but anyone takes him down and all of a sudden they're "Pussies who cant fight like a man yadda yadda".

    Its getting REAL old hearing a MIXED Martial Artists complain about grappling in a MIXED Martial Arts fight lol.

    So a lie is a rumor?

    People criticize Rampage because his approach is KO or nothing. He could have tried to reverse Hamill, could have attacked his legs and made it easier to defend the TD and strike. He could have done just about anything that wasn't just complain that wrestling is part of the game.


    I don't hate Rampage, but I really don't like listening to him talk.

    Exactly man. I think Rampage is a little more calculating than we give him credit for... He's very clearly bating Glover, hoping he'll bite and will stand with him to prove some kind of point to Rampage, that he's not afraid.
    Unfortunately for Rampage, Glover's is neither stupid or one-dimensional, and will most likely look for - and get - the takedown fairly early on in my opinion.
    I'm taking Glover by second round TKO.
