This will sound strange but I don't think Page is a fighter at heart. He doesn't look like he's having fun in there like some guys do, I don't how much sense this makes but he looks like its not fun to him. He's also said that he totally hates training. Most of the other great fighters say they love the training and fight prep.
I don't know what any of this means but maybe he's just not that into it.

Those types of fans aren't really fans you want anyway.

It was always obvious that Rampage loved to fight, but its always going to come down to money and peace of mind. Right now I think Rampage is more concerned with making some dough rather than being the next Randy Couture. Oh wait...Randy made a movie too

Honestly people need to relax.
He'll be back.

you two have it all wrong and in fact you have some facts completely backwards.

Dana mentioned yesterday that Rampage is getting paid shit to do this movie. Rampage is actually throwing away MILLIONS to do this fight with Rashad.

Not to mention everything Dana, the Zuffa boys, Spike and Rashad all had invested in this season of TUF.

There are people out there doing a great job making it look like a non-violent sport. Thatís not my job. My job is warfare. Iím over here to (expletive) kill..... Nick Diaz

I think Dana WHITE should be able to control Rampage and make him do whatever he wants, since this is 1809.

But he's such a profound coach on TUF, like a young Lou Holtz or John Wooden. I think I heard him yelling out, "do what you gotta do" while his fighter was getting powned. That's deep, you can't teach that kind of fight-insight.

Call me crazy, but I wouldn't trust Dana when it comes to the figures he pays out.

uhhhh... you're overdoing it All this "make" language, were derived from the point of the authority of a legally binding contract, which I was made aware does not exist (Dana's bad).

You over did it.

Why not? He's in a better position than some internet hero making random guesses. Page wouldn't just get his base salary, I'm sure he get cuts of the PPV as well as sponsor money as well. I think his money for this fight could easily make it into the millions.
