But that was an "MMA fighter" with a 17-0 boxing record (15-0 at the time)

I feel like this is going to be a complete "work". Jones will be completely capable of kicking the shit out of Rampage, but he will most likely keep it going and pretend that Page actually has something for him. Thats my guess.

I don't think I could watch that. It will be either an embarrassing round 1 ko or a few drawn out rounds of Rampage swinging wildly and Jones dodging them like Rampage is an amateur, which he is. One of the best boxers of all time vs. an amateur just seems cheap, will be the exact same as Toney vs. Couture.

This is dumb, if I was Rampage I'd be trying to ressurect a recently disappointing, and nosediving MMA career. Not taking on novelty fights.

Interesting. I don't know enough about the US court system to say this would work or not, but it is an interesting way to get a spike in ppv numbers. I would like to think that as the Alvarez situation began to play out before this ppv has taken place it would not play. As well a big spike in one ppv could (and should) be written off through standard deviation. I don't know if Couture is still under a fight contract with UFC but if not I see Bellator trotting him out in a similar manner to move the ppv numbers up which would bolster their contract whether for the Alveraz situation or future contract disputes.

To bad for Alveraz, maybe he needs to get in a gas station fight (Falcao) or come up with some assault charges (Daly) to get cut from bellator.

Wouldn't even surprise me if Jones got knocked out..and by Rampage of all people.

I have a hard time seeing this getting sanctioned.

Honestly, who would pay to see this?

I suppose there would be some boxing fans who would like to see it so they could say, 'SEe MMA sucks, lulz!' when Jackson got mauled, but I don't think any serious MMA or Boxing fan would have any interest in such a pointless fight.
