    Good.

    One less past his prime former great I don't have to watch decline even more.

    Even TRT didn't help. Good Riddance, I don't like watching guys put out mediocre efforts for a paycheck.

    Let Rampage go be the next Bob Sapp taking any fight any time for a pay check.

    This sums up my feelings.

    Rampage hasn't put on a good fight in a while.

    He looks horrible even when he wins.

    His heads been out of it a while. His last entertaining fight was 3 years ago with Jardine. And the whole not giving a fuck, bad ass, asshole, street, whatever the fuck thing was fun until he started looking slower, more reserved in the cage. He's a legend, but Come on.

    UPDATE : He wants to be released from his contract....

    I wouldn't be surprised if he fights Fedor if he gets released...

    Honestly, I am at the point where I would just release him.

    The only thing he brings to the cage is his name recognition.

    It seems like he just wants to fight cans or something.

    fuck him. Keep him sitting on the shelf for a year and when even less people care, dump him then.

    Just curious, if he was a likeable guy, never talked shit, and never made boasts about how he was the best, would people still want him gone? I understand it's a little sad when a former great becomes less great, and it's tough to watch them fight at lesser levels, but I can't empathize with that. There are still dozens of LHWs in the UFC he could either beat easily or would make a pretty even match up with. Are you telling me none of the fights at those levels have the potential to be entertaining?

    If you just hate the guy, no problem, I get that. But there are two very different reasons to want him to hit the bricks. Extremely different. And I get confused where people are coming from.

    1. Hate him, always hated him, wish he'd go away.
    2. Loved him or at least loved his fights, have a sad watching him now.

    Personally, I never really hated the guy, but I get annoyed pretty much every time he opens his mouth. If he was still a contender and putting on great fights, I could deal with the antics and get excited to see him in the cage. As it stands now, sayonara.


    Me too.... in 2004.

    Again, if you hate an athlete in professional sports I completely respect that, that's your right as a an American male. But the other side of it is just so different. Why does it matter that he's not a contender? Is every fighter who's not a contender NOT WELCOME HERE?

    And I'd disagree if you were saying he didn't put on good fights (you didn't say that. you just said he's not putting on great fights.) His fights aren't bad.

    Because he will always get ME/Co-ME slots even though he hasn't had a GOOD fight since he won the title.

    He is a BORING fighter now, and he bitches about "don't put me against wrestlers" FUCK THAT JAZZ.

    If you only want easy fights then take a pay cut and fight on the undercard.

    I probably wouldn't mind if he didn't hype every fight as "His return to glory" and then when it is fight time he acts like he is half asleep in the fucking cage.

    He was GIFTED a title shot for beating fucking Hammil.... Hammil!??!?! what the holy fuck is that shit.



    In other words, as long as he is fighting, there is at least one guy whose place he is taking who actually WANTS to be in there and WANTS to be the best, not just to collect a paycheck.

    Of course not. There are plenty of guys I like to see fight who aren't in the title picture (Leben, Kongo, Roy Nelson). I'm just saying that, in this specific case, I only want to see him if he's at the top of his game. An average Rampage who still constantly flaps his gums holds no interest for me.

    Yeah, I guess if he's still "flapping his gums" like a ME guy while obviously not being one, I can see if it rubs people the wrong way.

    He actually wants more money & I agree about others WANTING it
    After Griffin beat him he cried & pouted & realized he would never be considered the "best" again & phones it in
    The sport & UFC is better without him

    Dana stuck by him when few did & he bitches every chance he can

    That's what I don't get either. The UFC and Dana have done a lot for Rampage, for him to whine about him not getting paid enough is stupid. He's probably one of the best paid fighters in the UFC and he has the nerve to say he isn't paid enough?

    Either he's completely lost it, or maybe, just maybe, he's using that tactic to get a better contract. That might be given Rampage too much credit though, but with one fight left in his contract and his recent use of TRT, anything is possible.

    He has probably been offered 1-2 million to fight Fedor.

    And no, I have no source for this whatsoever, I just can't imagine where else he thinks he would get anywhere close to the money the UFC is paying him.

    No way he would get that much, they couldn't make that money back without major PPV & they don't have that
    He is talking out of his ass - A Rampage udual

    Dana stood by him when he was "dehydrated" & almost killed several people & he has done nothing but fuck with him since

    UFC stole his passion after Griffin beat him? What BS
