Page has nothing to gain from that fight. It's his last one in the UFC so let him out against a former foe. I agree with Gus v Badar. Perfect match up to see where these kids are at.

Jon Jones | Anderson Silva | Urijah Faber | Benson Henderson | Rampage Jackson | Roy Nelson | Shinya Aoki

What a stupid idea, Rampage is out injured right now. Shogun and Machida are STILL waiting for opponents, why I dont know. Stick Gustaf in with one of them in Brazil.

I've said it so many times, just keep the fighters active. Gustaf needs a top opponent, there are top guys sat around doing sod all for months, and they offer him the one who's out of action... Really frustrating.

As a fan of both guys I have no desire to see this fight because Rampage can't compete with him and it won't prove anything for Gustaffson.

Man GUS will lose this fight, mentality the best Rampage will show up. I would not be surprise if he smashes GUS easily. If you really think about it he can't lose this fight, his stock will take a huge hit. If he is really planning to leave the ufc, he will go out with a bang.

How on earth is Gus ranked so high now? He fought Silva who was coming back after a year and did not finish him. He lost to Phil Davis, and defeated Vlad and Hamill prior to that.

Jon Jones is a wrestler, Gus will box with Page, Rampage is 6-1 vs fighters who don't have a wrestling base in the UFC. His only lost was to Forrest. Plus i don't see GUs beating the guys he lost to in Jones,Evans,i don't count the bader fight.
I'm surprise people are dismissing Rampage so easily, he did make the Jones fight pretty competitive, and did beat Machida. If Rampage had came in healthy Ryan Bader would be in the unemployment line.

Shogun, Rampage, Forrest and Machida falling off had a lot to do with it. Those were the top five guys at LHW along with Rashad just two years ago, now 3 are at the low end of the top ten and one guy's completely vanished from contention.

He's on a five fight win streak with four stoppages. Rampage IMO can beat anyone when he's healthy and not being poked in the eye, but whether he wants to anymore is another matter and that is so important against a hungry new guy.

I have never doubted Rampage's will to win, but with knee surgeries and recent distrust in the UFC, I would not expect him to win his final fight if its against Gustaf.

I couldn't really care less about Rampage these days, so go ahead and put his last fight against Gustaffson.

vBookie Record: 16-9

Rampage loses to nearly every one now. His game is figured out and anyone with anything resembling a well-rounded game crushes him. Easy fight for Gus

Gustaf would light Rampage up, I also think he'd expose Bones in a striking battle, but he's gotta train his TDD a whole lot more before he takes that fight.
