I would like to see him at his best again, he has been terrible of late. A motivated Rampage beats Glover Teixeira... probably, although chances of it happening are slim.

People need to get off of this. Rampage won rounds 1 and 2. Machida won round 3. 29-28. Rampage wins. Legitimate win.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

I guess its more about supporting a talented fighter (and former LHW Champ) than Rampage specifically.

I personally do not think he will ever hold the title again. But if he is coming back to fight...he needs to think he will. Getting the best out of any fighter makes for a much more entertaining and captivating showcase.

Always supporting:
Forrest
Machida
Wandy
Velasquez


Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones is the best match-up the UFC has ever been able to arrange. Here's to hoping it goes down.

I'm a huge Machida fan. I scored it for Lyoto 29/28 but it was a rather lackluster fight and didn't feel that either fighter really did much to deserve the nod.

If they met again, I'd hope to see more engagement from both of them.

Always supporting:
Forrest
Machida
Wandy
Velasquez

If Rampage is excited about fighting again it is because all other avenues of making money fell through.

What would him resigning accomplish professionally if his goal wasn't to get back to the top? A paycheck..?
Did Rampage sign a new contract with the UFC??? I thought he was leaving after his next fight??

Yeah i dont know why people act as if Machida won. I scored 2 rounds for Rampage and 1 for Machida. And i am not a fan of either guy tbh.

Hey SideWays!

No he has not. However, should he beat Glover, he would have to ink a new deal to pursue the LHW title as he only has one fight remaining on his current one. (IIRC)

Forrest
Machida
