Rampage Backtracks out of Texieria Fight; Wants Forrest Instead



It is kind of weird that Griffin vs Rampage 2 STILL hasn't happened yet. Rampage has been campaigning for that fight for awhile now. I'd definitely rather see it than Griffin vs Davis. That fight is going to suck.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Rampage wants Glover. Rampage wants the title. Rampage wants a hungry up and comer. Now, Rampage wants tired, over the hill, and unmotivated Forrest Griffin. Like I said, why does anyone listen to this guy? Rampage is interested in avenging losses when those that whooped his ass are shells of their former selves.

Forrest is not exactly a fast track to the title, Sounds like he just wants a check and a 50/50 shot at a win. maybe 60/40 shot..??..

That is kind of sad when he just said he wanted to destroy Glover and liked that fight.

Forrest already has a fight..

Even though I'd rather see Rampage/Forrest over Phil. And maybe Tex/Te Huna type matchup.

Honestly I'd rather see Rampage-Forrest and Phildavis-Teixeira. If all parties agree I think the UFC should swap them.

Rampage and Forrest are both past their primes but their first fight is the fight that got me into MMA big time so I can't really say I'd not be interested or watch.

But Rampage would probably KO Forrest and I think he knows this.

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.

Forrest vs Rampage would be the slowest, sloppiest, 2 most unmotivated fighters currently in the UFC Roster.

Forrest should just hang them up. Every time he fights I become less of a fan. It's blatantly obvious he's just out for a payday as he doesnt even look like he wants to fight.

Is it confirmed that he's out for six months? His original suspension was for 180 days [b]pending an X-ray of his right hand. I haven't seen anything regarding the results of his X-ray though.
