People talk too much about Rampage's comments on money etc, sometimes it's better to just look at the fights; Rampage is too much for Hamill. On the feet it's no contest, he's strong and busy in the clinch, he has great TDD and is good at stalling people on the ground.

If Jackson doesn't manage to get a stoppage, he usually wins on the scorecards. Rampage definitely bests Hamill in terms of stopping power, and his consistant aggression and ability to keep the fight where he wants it is very hard to outpoint. Griffin and Evans did it with very specific strategies, but I don't think Hamill can apply either of them effectively. He's not a kicker and he's not quick enough to do what Rashad did, he'll get outmuscled and probably outwrestled. IMO a focussed Rampage would kill Rashad anyway.

Rampage should take this by KO or UD, Jones vs Jackson will then be topic of the week.
