THANK YOU for understanding the cage is x10 better for a wrestler or even a BJJ person then a ring.

i wish Rampage had a little more time in the last round so he would of whooped dat azz and knocked henderson out which he would done if he had another 8-10 seconds. then the crying about this fight would cut down by 90%

Team Quest has 4 octagons to work with at their camp, probably more now since they are getting more sponsorship. And Hendo knows the rules, its the same as pride except there is no knee's or kicks' to the heads of downed opponents. Other then that Pride and UFC are the same rules.

Quinton had amazing ground defense this fight, and help a greco-roman champ down in pretty much every round! Amazing fight for Rampage and I wish him the best of luck in his rematch with Shogun, hes definitely gonna need it lol.

It might have been said before in this thread but one of the conditions of Hendo signing with the UFC was that he would get an immediate title shot. I heard that on the interview that Frank Trigg did with Mr. Sunshine (see Five Ounces of Pain | An MMA Blog for the link) or it was on the video interview that Rampage did with Sherdog before the fight.

You can't complain about his ring rust if he requested an immediate title shot as one of his signing conditions. Rampage wanted two fights before Chuck but Hendo wanted to jump right in.

To be honest I did not want to see either guy loose.
