I really thought Dana had an angle on the Rampage thing, but from the sounds of it, he is mighty is vexed about it. Surely if Rampage is contracted to several more fights after the film it'll only be good for the UFC's growth, no?

If Rampage sucks in the movie... that wont be so good.

Is it just me or has Dana since about the middle of this year really started accentuating the word 'fight' like he's a character from The Departed. 'Foyt'.

I know he's from those parts originally but it just seems like he's really laying it on thick these days. Or is it just me?

rampage & huerta are smart fighters, nothing wrong with not spending your whole career just wanting to fight.

''You probably thought this was a bright idea, who hit the light switch? Hype shift, this is where it looks like the fight's fixed, tight fist, beat you with the hand that I write with, punchlines that remind Rodney King of the night sticks...''

Dana IMO implies that Rampage isn't a fighter when saying "some guys just aren't fighters.." (at 1:40-1:44)
Fells kinda typical Dana to do this kind of stuff to fighters once they don't do what he wants.

Who can forget the "Fedor don't wanna fight the best" bs. He should stop saying stuff where there are no facts to back it up. Looks like Rampage is next in line to lose his credibility as a fighter. Rampage is a good guy there is no need to trash him along with all fighters that decides to do something else. In my mind he is no less of a fighter just because he decides to participate in a movie.

Iam sure when Rampage is done with the movie he will be back fighting, with an even bigger audience!


All loves comebacks..

You have to think though, Rampage knew he was supposed to fight Evans after this season of TUF and now they have to put the fight on hold until after this movie is done, for all we know we might not see this fight for at least a year, with rampage having to get into fight shape, and if Evans gets offered any other fights in the meantime he could get hurt further delaying their showdown...

Also Fedor doesn't want to fight the best HW's... thats why he fights for Strikeforce and not the UFC... I hope Brett Rogers KO's him so everyone can get over how "he's the best HW in the world"....

what's the big deal anyway, when ppl see rampage in the a-team they will be intrigued about what he does..Which will lure them to his next fight..It seems like free publicity for the ufc to me, they could easily have the match at superbowl weekend..Apart from reshuffling a lot of cards (that could of possibly been reshuffled due to injuries anyway) dana is overacting on this one

To go as far as to hint at how they helped him when he went coo coo (and this is how he repays them) was very petty even for dana.. I wonder if this is some kind of "damage control" move to stop other fighters from going down the cung le path..I mean first it was randy, then huerta and now possibly rampage

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

Not your whole career, but at least while you are contracted. Huerta is on his last fight and nowhere near a title shot. Rampage is one fight away from a shot.

What I wouldn't do to have a peek at his contract with the UFC.

I totally agree with this, Page knew about the fight, what it meant for his career, what it meant for UFC107 and what it meant for selling the TUF show he was just on, and then just ups and says he wants no part of it for now.

In ANY job you don't get up and do something else, and make your boss wait on you for your work to be done.
