His last KO was years ago and his fighting under MMA rules. Time to acknowledge that, stop complaining on and try to keep the fans you have left.
You brought up a lot of great points. Myself I use to like Rampage a lot for his fighting style and spirit. But ever since his lack luster fight with Keith Jardine I found he's been super flat. The Jardine fight was awful from what I can remember, his loss to Rashad was also pretty awful for the amount of smack both those guys talked. In his Lyoto fight, it was tough to call. I'd have to rewatch it, but I remember Lyoto tooling him the last round, but I can't remember if he squeeked by the first two rounds with borging cage clinching. I'll rewatch that fight but I was not impressed at all after the fight with his performance. The his last 3 fights were just awful. The way he is talking about not getting exciting strikers, he needs to stop focusing on them, and focus on his own game because he should have been able to Ko Hamil, could have been more aggressive with jones, and should not have even been in the cage againist Bader with his weight and injury.
So I lost a lot of respect for him. I would hope he STFU, trains hard, and improves his foot work and starts attacking people instead of fighting the way he has been for the past few lackluster years.
