...Man I had a feeling when Wanderlie Silva signed with the UFC it was just a matter of time before the two would face each other again. If this fight happens, it could easily be one of the best MMA fights in years. What a mecca fight and money maker this would be for the UFC. It would also draw in the Pride Japanese fans who witnessed those two fights that were so incredible. I know one thing is for certain...Rampage will do whatever it takes to avoid Wanderlie's infamous Muay Thai clinch with the knees that brutally ended both fights.
...Rampage has matured as a fighter without a doubt and I'm glad he got to finally wear a championship belt since Wandy dashed his hopes twice. Wanderlie is just as intense as ever and after he destroyed Jardine in 36 seconds, it was a flashback of the dominant champion he was for over 5 years in Pride. I don't think there is a single MMA fan or fighter in the world who wouldn't want to see them bang 1 last time.
...To pick a winner now...I can't!
Wanderlie would be coming in with momentum and confidence. Rampage just coming off a title loss would be starving to avenge both losses to Wanderlie. I love both fighters and seeing them fight again for the last time would be a privilege and one of the best fights in UFC history...without question!!...
