    “Rampage (30-8) is coming off a close decision loss to Rashad Evans at UFC 114″ …. WHAT? Close decision??? Dominant performance by rashad ALL 3 rounds.

    NICEEEE! Rashad will be happy about this. He clearly DID NOT want to fight Machida again. It was so obvious the way that he stated over and over again that he wanted to wait for Shogun to heal up. Understandable though..

    This seems like a bad matchup for Rampage though. Rashad was too fast for him and Machida was too fast for Rashad.. This fight will be huge.

    I agree with Karo. Rashad was in trouble for 15 seconds of that entire fight

    I personally think that rampage will come out and surprise everyone by beating machida, i really hope that, that loss to evans shud motivate him to get bak in2 the ring, ring rust played a huge part in that fight, i neva known rampage to be that slow against anyone. he looked stiff and lost. he'll get bak in2 it and beat machida. GO RAMPAGE

    Machida has got more tools to win this fight. We will learn from the loss of shogun. Page just looks for homeruns. This is gonna be a boring 3 round fight with MAchida getting a decision

    Karlo, you are wrong. Rampage did lose the first two round by being dry humped. Then won the 3rd when he dropped Sugar. Rashad should have been a man of his word and kept that fight standing. He bought him a damn snuggy for crying out loud……I think he bought it because he wanted to cuddle up with Rampage in it…he sure didn't buy because he was going to throw hands and KO Rampage like he said.

    @PoppyNick – get real, a huggy ?. Maybe if rampage didnt train at wolfs lair he would have had a game plan to nulify rashads wrestling. It's part of the game, rampage is a fucking idiot if he thought it was going to be a boxing match with rashad. Rampage is too cocky and retarded to have a good plan for machida. Lyota is gonna kick his head off into the second row.

    a lot of posters on this site have no love for grappling and prefer strikes. The seasoned MMA fan should favor all of it
