Thread: Rampage looking to get out of the UFC - Bas Rutten Interview

    Rampage looking to get out of the UFC - Bas Rutten Interview



    Interesting.

    One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, the other to the Lord.

    Looking back at the footprints in the sand, he noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it.

    The Lord replied, "My son, My precious child, I love you and would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

    Pretty much.

    He doesnt want to fight wrestlers, so who do we have.

    Shogun - Rampage will probably lose to him
    Lyoto - Rampage won a close decision in a snorefest. Machida would probably win the rematch
    Forrest - Rampage lost in the first fight, dunno if he'd want Griffin because he might be taken down

    i dunno maybe Cyrille Diabate or Nick Penner might be more to his liking.
    Sakuraba is currently unsigned, nevermind he might get submitted again.

    Rampage saying he would fight for $500, and then complains that he isn't getting paid what he's worth. Is it the fact that Rampage doesn't want to train to make weight, which if that's the case he could fight as a heavyweight. Or the fact that he doesn't have the take down defense to fight wrestlers, so he's frustrated that he can't match up with these guys. If this is the case Rampage, go try your hand at boxing or kickboxing. Because obviously, wrestlers have dominated MMA forever. They are not going away. And to see you hand pick fighters would be a disgrace. Either train to fight and make weight, go up a weight class, or retire. That's my opinion.

    Man... I love this guy but some of the shit he says is off the wall. It makes me sad he's not surrounded by better people.

    True that. It seems like he keeps those around who stroke that ego rather than push him to be a better athlete. I understand wanting to put on a show but if he doesn't want to fight a "mixed" fight, then why the hell doesn't go over to boxing or kickboxing?

    The truth is that he would probably get tuned in both if he fought any real competition.

    Hearing the interview, somehow I got the feeling that Rampage considers himself more of an entertainer than an athlete. He wants to bag great Ws to make him more marketable to the movie industry and wants UFC to help him with that. Which is such utter bullshit and so unprofessional of him. The HRT is understandable and to an extent acceptable as long as it is not abused but expecting hand picked opponents to further one's movie career is an insult to the sport imo.

    C'mon that's a little harsh. No one thought Quinton was a joke when he slammed Arona thru the canvas. Or got hung thru the ropes by Wandy.

    He gave us some entertaining fights....He's just never been the same since losing to Forrest.

    Forrest broke Rampage
    - Why would I want to watch some guys fight that are all natural when my mailman is flying through the f**king neighborhood like the Hulk?

    Seriously. I don't Forrest has ever broken anyone other than Rampage. Ever since he got leg kicked out of his title, he's been on bitch mode ever since.

    Rewatching the slam, Arona goes out BC he gets headbutted by 'Page when he hits the ground. It opens a nasty cut on his face too.

    Frankly I wouldn't mind if they just kept him around and put him in fights with people who want to keep it standing. There plenty of fighters on the roster who aren't even close to title contention, and never will be. Guys like Pat Berry & Kongo are kept around just for entertainment sake (though I don't find Kongo particularly entertaining). If Rampage wants to be in the same boat, I say let him. It's just a shame because he still has what it takes to be in contention.
