Anyone hating on rampage should realize he didn't realize glover is out for six months, he wants a fight ASAP. Forrest vs. Page makes the most sense, both guys are on their way out. What happens if Rampage beats Glvoer? The ranking system gets all messed up. Glvoer vs Davis and Forrest vs Page makes then most sense to me.
So you're saying that Rampage shouldn't fight Glover because Rampage might win and it would mess up the ranking systems? My God, what has happened to MMA fans? Glover vs. Jackson has the makings of a war. Hence why I, as a fight fan and not a fight analyst, want to see it. If Glover wins, his stock goes up substantially. If Rampage wins, then Glover goes back to the drawing board and tries again, like any fighter who loses.
People putting so much focus on rankings as versus good fights boggles my mind. What's worse is these are the same people who give wrestling fans a hard time.

Plus, Davis could beat Forrest, but still has nothing to offer for the top fighters of the division, so I see no point really in having him possibly beating a big name
Here we go again with the rankings nonsense. Because you know, Phil couldn't possibly learn from his fight with Rashad and improve. No, that's never happened in the history of MMA. Let's just assume that because he lost to Rashad, Phil has nothing to offer the top of the division and should thus be relegated to fighting entry level fighters for the rest of his career (despite the fact that he defeated Little Nog, finished Gustaf, and sent Brian Stann and Tim Boetsch packing).
Today's MMA fans are in a sorry state.
