I don't know if he will be mentally prepared but for different reasons.

I don't think theres any discernible reason to think he's afraid of wanderlei, sure, he got his ass kicked twice but I don't think many, if any, fighters are afraid of getting beat up.

My main concern is if he'll feel confident in his abilities due to firing Juanito, losing to forrest, the hit and run situation, etc. As cliche as it sounds my concern is him defeating himself.

Now do you think the winner of this fight would get the next title shot? Id say yes and i see wanderlei in domination.
As far as rampage and his mentality, you'd have to say its fine because i dont think he himself, would want to fight again unless he was sure he was ok, and also the ufc wouldnt let him fight. Id say he has plenty of motivation to fight wanderlei as rampage himself told the ufc he wants this fight.

I hope Rampage doesnt go all Oliver Mcall in the octagon , i truly hope that Jackson is fully mentally fit and if so i think he has prospectively more tools to do a job on Silva, to put in perspective- yes he was defeated 2x by Silva but Jackson Beat Liddell twice who beat Silva recently on points etc
Do fans really think nothing has changed since Rampages loss to Silva all that time ago? IMO if Jackson is 100% then he can and should win.

I don't think he will. Wanderlei is going to knock him out in the first round

I don't know if I will be mantally prepared when he meets Wanderlei!

As I've said before, I love both guys and I really don't want to see this fight at this time in both fighter's career.

But remember: both times these two have met, Rampage has been competetive and dangerous, so I don't expect this to be anything but an all out war from both parts.

WAND could very likely win this via KO, but i'm hoping for a FOTY decision win for him in which Page doesn't lose too much face. It's the only way I can see this going without me having very mixed and confused emotions after this fight...

I think he'll have too much on his mind and won't mentally be prepared for him. Wandy by murder rd. 1
