Rashad Evans has got a glass jaw the same way that Michael Bisping has. Just takes the right kind of killer to fully expose that and follow up with the KO (Belfort, Hendo, Machida).

Evans, like Bisping, gets dropped in almost every fight and his recovery ins't quite instantaneous like some of the other guys who get dropped a lot (Alvarez, Diaz etc).

Throw Rashad in there with a killer, if he stands and trades for too long, he's going to get knocked out cold.

Didn't catch the fight but glad Rampage lost. I'm guessing Glover stood a decent amount because it sounded like Rampage endorsed him after. Rampage is becoming a huge bum right now, am curious to see where he goes next.

If I had to guess I would say Bellator. Unless he finds a movie to do or begs the UFC back.

Sad if he goes there, I like Bellator. But would be sad to see a guy like Rampage fighting in front of like 3,000 fans. He could have a couple fights with Mo that would be pretty decent because Mo likes striking now.

Mo asked Rampage to come to Bellator last week.

Man - I watched this live with no audio (a bit intoxicated - but no more than usual):

I thought that was the best Rampage we'd seen since the Silva KO....

Glover was better; but it wasn't like Rampage got walked-through. It is was a badass stand-up fight that could have ended any second.

I'd compare this to ,say, Vera's performance against Shogun awhile back; looking better in defeat than his past few wins.

I am that far off that I need to rewatch it?

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.

No I thought he performed rather well in the stand up which is what I expected. His defensive wrestling looked worse than it has in years though.

Did you not notice that his knees are completely shot now?

Page gave him a good fight he is over the hill but still a tough guy to beat for most of the top 20. I would expect him to retire after this and focus on his side businesses and maybe do some more acting.

Sorry if this was posted before.

Rampages reaction right before the decision



I'm at least glad he went out in good spirits. No whining, No complaining, and had a bit of a laugh with it all. This is the Rampage I wish we had all through his UFC career.

Ken-Flo. Like a boss!

I think the same. Like his reaction after his fight with Lyoto. He thought Lyoto won and showed a very funny surprising face, offering |Lyoto an instant rematch. Very classy.
I wonder if the real reason for this bad blood between him and Dana is not fully disclosed. Rampage is normally a well humored character, but when he is pissed, he reacts over the edge, it seems. I also believe he wasn't in the best state of his mind when he fought Wand and continued his attacks after wand was out. He was pissed and made a mistake, IMO.
I will certainly not use these late whinings to remember him.
