I thought Forrest won and I'm the farthest thing from a racist, lol, the guy somewhere along the way has lost his mind, being compensated for "giving up his privacy"?

He went through the streets of CALIFORNIA of all places in his jacked up truck with HIS FACE on it jacked up on nothing but energy drinks and now he's bitching about privacy?

Come on now....
Most celebrities do dumb stuff. The fact that you know he did that stuff shows he is of rather high status.

Rampage has reached a certain level of fame, but claims to be paid nowhere near as much as others in that group. I don't know their bank accounts so I have no opinion, personally I believe many UFC fighters are paid way more than we think. But it's definitely not on the level of other sports and I think Rampage feels he's a star of MMA, which he is, and his income should grow with the sport he helped build.

I have no idea, I just like watching the guy fight.

I used to like Rampage, up until just after the Wandy fight. After that he just went downhill and wasn't the same. Now he just whines and b*tches all the time. If your heart isn't in it quit! And the UFC owes him nothing, if anything he should owe the UFC for all they have done for him over the years. Like bailing him out of jail when he went on a literal rampage after he lost to Forrest.

All of them do, but let's be real, he brought that one on himself.

It's well known they make more than the reported payout shows, Anderson made around seven million for the Chael fight, GSP's said he makes about five million.

But Rampage isn't in that company anymore, he had the title he lost it, he earned his way back and he got humiliated. The reality is this though when it comes to Rampage outside of the win over Machida he hasn't done nothing really big in the last four years and it should be noted that the only reason he beat Machida is because he's the guy who went for takedowns and clinched with him. There's nothing wrong with that, he certainly deserved to win, but this is the guy who constantly bitches about wrestlers yet he was the one who stalled and started the clinching and takedowns in that fight, when they didn't clinch and they did exchange we all saw who won that and it wasn't Rampage. That is a lot of my problem with Rampage he always goes on about wanting a striker but he wanted absolutely no part of a gun shy Machida on the feet.

Let's just call a spade a spade, we'll see how much he truly has left against Glover but unless we see the guy who fought Dan Henderson tooth and nail in one of the best fights of all time and the guy that knocked out Chuck Liddell his UFC career is going to come to a very, very gruesome end. He's wanted someone who will stand bang with him, it looks like he's found that guy, the question is, will he stand and bang?

Really? I used to like watching him fight. Now some fat guy shows up and tries to throw hooks for three rounds then whines for 6 months. And when I say "now" I mean everything that happened after Hendo. Rampage has had a pathetic UFc career, and not just because he has lost, but because he has been boring.

Rampage may have been lackluster lately but I don't do bandwagons, the guy has had an awesome career and it should always be respected.

i dont think he has been respectful to the sport or his fans so why should we respect him? I used to get so damn excited to see the guy fight or even do an interview. Its true what someone else said, he lost his soul after the forrest fight.

While we're on the subject, Rampage you owe me the $50 f=I wasted on watching you in the octagon vs. Bader, Hamill, Machida and Evans for a total of $200.

I'll knock off $50 for the laugh I got watching your face when Jones put the squeeze on you when you looked genuinely scared.

So as soon as you send me that $150 I'll start giving a crap about what you do and don't think about your employer.

I hope you stand and bang with Glover Taxidermist because I think that man is going to stuff you up and end your MMA career.

On a side note - you might be able to earn some cash by making some straight to DVD movies!

Ehh this is a MMAforum.

If any guy in the UFC or even outside of the UFC did what Rampage did then chances are all of us would know about it. It really doenst prove that Rampage has reached a certain level of fame. Though i agree that Rampage is one of the more famous people in MMA but certainly not because we know Rampage had a huge run in with cops.
