I'm shocked at myself, but I still like me some Rampage. I don't care where he ends up because i"ll still watch him fight cuz I enjoy his fights for the most part. (not all of them of course.)

Plus even though he lost to glover, I thought he showed up to fight...too bad his ground game sucks.

Bellator would be pouring money down the drain signing him.
I disagree. Jackson may sound moany and whiny to the hardcore fans who read every interview that pops up, but for the masses he is his HL reel and that star who played in the A-Team movie. He still has a big name value and is a good draw.

Exactly what I was thinking...very hypocritical. Have there been other situations like this in the past? I didn't know UFC had this clause in people's contracts.

Heath Herring and maybe Randy Couture when he wanted to fight Fedor.

There's one fight that can reinvigorate two ex-pride fighters' careers.

Shogun vs Rampage II main event five rounds of BRUTALITY. Man I'm salivating already.

I agree. Dana said that Bellator was doing the dirtiest, scummiest things you can do in the fight business... but here is Dana trying to do the exact same thing.

Rampage is a Free Agent, he wants to leave the UFC, let him go wherever he pleases.

Dana just wants to pick a fight so Bellator over spends on him. He knows if he drives up the price MMA will become bad buisiness for Viacom.

Couture had fights left on his deal. Eddie doesn't.

Eh I think it's a little late for that at this point. And they'd both gas quicker than later and I couldn't see either getting KO'd, so rounds 3-5 would have the potential to be brutal.
