Good attitude to have....

Whatever the fans may think, if he doesn't think he can do it..he never will.

What would him resigning accomplish professionally if his goal wasn't to get back to the top? A paycheck..?

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.

Maybe he's talking about a scrabble tournament with his family?

Even then I don't really like his chances, to be honest.

I can see it now. Rampage getting real excited as he hits a triple word score with "nipples".

Probably not. But why not have the mindset that you can? You never know.

Rampage beat Hendo (current #1 contender). Rampage out pointed Machida (the only LHW to really best JBJ for a round; Vitor being the second, but a MW).

If either of those fighters were to take the belt off Jones in a rematch, does Rampage not stand a chance? The data says he does; and so does his twitter feed.

How far would the current champs have come if they thought: "Man I can't hang with these guys. I'm just going to show up until I'm cut from the roster."

Always supporting:
Forrest
Machida
Wandy
Velasquez

I dig your support of the man. I really do. But I still stand by the opinion that 34 year old Rampage is better off not entertaining such delusions.

Even Rampage knows he never won that fight against Machida.
