I would be confident of that in a ring. I love Spong, but if Rampage wants to wrestle... he won't win.

Honestly when was the last time Rampage actually caught someone? Nevermind an elite striker. He'd need to push him against the fence like Machida for a winm

Yea... Good point, Spong can be pretty loose defensively but on the other hand, Rampage couldn't even catch Ryan Bader.

I'm curious why they would feature Fitch and not Burkman when he just destroyed in a couple months ago. Small thing to notice I know, just crossed my mind.

Other than that, I like this card a lot... I'd pay for it, or at least go out to a bar that was hosting it.

Spong wants this fight, he's trying to wind Rampage up. Ramage won't resist trading with Spong, at least initially, and he'll lose that fight. If he thought Jones' leg kicks hurt, he's in for a surprise.

Fun little card.

Rampage Jackson, Tyrone Spong exchange shots on Twitter

I know the guy is not in the ufc anymore but thought this was interesting just to bad he didn't have this same energy in last two fight in the octagon!!

A relative harmless tweet from World Series of Fighting light heavyweight Tyrone Spong erupted into quite a Twitter war between Spong and Bellator light heavyweight Rampage Jackson on Saturday afternoon. Check it out below. (Warning: Some language NSFW).

That was a good exchange. I really couldn't say who would win. Never thought about this match up before. This would be a very good test to see where Tyrone is at.

This was pure showboating from WSOF. Did they really think that Bellator would take them up on it? No they didn't. They did it to make themselves look good and create some news in the world MMA community. Bellator are placed in a no win situation here. They stay quiet and they look like a weaker org than WSOF. They take them up on the challenge and any of their fighters get beat they look weaker than WSOF.

Clever on WSOF but it could backfire if Bellator actually did accept the challenge. Because then it would be on WSOF to ensure that it happened and contract negotiations would be a nightmare and probably preclude this from happening anyway.
