The refs stop it before the third, Glover wins it.

Quentin? Oh Killz and his spelling :laugh:

Glover via beating up a lazy over the hill Rampage who will plod around the cage looking to land one punch the whole time.

Good riddance to Quintin, that's all I have to say about this fight...

Big fight for Tex. Regardless of what Rampage has done or how he has declined, this is by far the biggest name Glover could add to his record.

I think this fight will be closer than some think. Glover is the kind of guy that Rampage likes to fight. Someone that will stand and trade with him without holding back. That being said, I still see Glover winning by a convincing decision, or by a late round submission after Rampage gets winded. I wouldn't be shocked if Rampage did pull it off, because like I said, this is the kind of match up Rampage likes, but my pick to win is Glover. I've been following this guy a long time and I've always thought he could do good things in the UFC, he hasn't changed my mind so far since signing.

If Rampage comes in real ready to stick it to Dana and the UFC , then I expect a pretty damn good fight.

But there is nothing to assume he will. I will say Rampage survives though.

Tex by UD.

I don't see Glover standing with him, I think he'll take him down and he'll do what he did to Maldanado, which is beat him down badly.

I can see Glover mixing it up a little. I don't think he'll be looking to grapple from start to finish. I can see him exchanging, and if Rampage gets the upper hand even a little, Glover will be looking to put him on his back, or he may just put him there anyway to mix it up. Ah yes, the perks of being multi dimensional. At this point, I give Glover the advantage everywhere. Rampage has good take down defense when he comes in well conditioned (which is the only way I think it will be close, more or less me hoping Rampage comes to fight in good shape. Probably should have specified that), but given his recent performance, and the fact that his interviews haven't made him sound very motivated in terms of fighting, I can't picture him coming into this fight any better. He has a punchers chance if Glover comes into the fight in berserker mode, but I see Glover realizing the danger of Rampage's power and fighting a little bit more conservatively.

I'd be a little disappointed if Glover was looking to make this a pure grappling match. I want him to prove the nay sayers about his chin wrong (that argument is ridiculous anyway, but I'm not going there again) and out strike another good boxer like he did against Maldanado. He's out classed both of his opponents in the UFC in every area, that's one of the best statements you can make. I think he can do the same here. Catch Rampage a few times standing, and then put him on his back and beat him up. Dominant decision win, or late round submission.

I would laugh my ass off if Glover just took him down and stayed on top of him all night... What a fitting end to a bitter Rampage's run with the UFC :p
