I'll probably get negged for this, but I take Rampage for this fight. I've seen the last two and they are classic wars, but Rampage is a different fighter now. He is much more well-rounded and his striking is a lot more technical. Wandy hasn't improved nearly as much over that period and some might say has backslid a little.

I see this going to Page via TKO in the third, possibly decision.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

I definitely see a point to this fight happening, seeing as Rampage has improved leaps and bounds since his days in Pride.. he's not the same fighter. Lets not forget that their two previous encounters were two of the most exciting fights EVER in MMA.

Besides the fact that Rampage has improved tremendously, it's in a cage. Rampage's wrestling is what he should use against Silva. A cage does favor wrestlers.

Rampage was cleared of all charges, with the condition being he fight Wand a third time.

Also, Page's best chance in this fight is to take Wandy to the floor. From the Page we've seen in his recent fights, he doesn't seem to keen to grapple anymore.

I'm lovin' this fight, actually, as their second fight is one of the best fights ever in MMA history.

Wanderlei will knee Rampage in the face a bunch of times. While Rampage is a different fighter, he still hasn't shown that he can avoid the plum clinch.

I think that Rampage will wrestle him to a UD.

Getting to see two guys punch each other.

I guess the main point is to make lots of money for the UFC, but I'm honestly excited about the fight. It was a long time sisnce they last fought, and it was in a ring. This might go either way.

This is gonna be a tough one to call, but should be entertaining to watch nonetheless.
