Rampage: I'll fight Rashad in any gym to shut him up...

More ammo coming out of Rampage courtesy of his blog:

Make no mistake the UFC treated me a lot better than Pride. If you get hurt in training in a UFC fight then will send you to the best doctors. If you get hurt in a Pride fight most of the time they will tell me ďoh you better take care of that!Ē The UFC will always let you know in a timely matter who you will be fighting & give you enough time to train but with Pride if I knew 4 weeks ahead I would be happy cause most times they just give you a 2 weeks notice. Pride will rip you off on your merchandising but the UFC would find someway to hook you up on merchandising deals. Pride will make fights easier for certain fighters inside the ring (like standing up fights early). With the UFC whatever happens, happens. The only thing I see the UFC needs to fix in this area is to get better judges. Ones who know about MMA & not from the boxing world.

The reason why Iím talking about all this is that I feel like this whole situation could have been avoided if UFC would have respected me more & rescheduled the fight about a month or more in my hometown, which I know fights can be rescheduled because of the Matt Hughes & Matt Serra was postponed due to injuries. Instead, Dana went on the internet and started talking bad about my decision. All we had to do was come to a certain type of agreement or understanding, which later came after a lot of trash talk from Dana. My manager flew to Vegas and talked to them and tried to work things out like a MAN. And still I keep quiet and I didnít talk trash back on the internet. The only reason why Iím even talking now is because I feel like I owe my fans an explanation because I am a MANÖa real MAN. Yeah, I made good money with the UFC Ė more than Pride Ė but I made both shows more money than they made me. I didnít care too much about Pride treating me like crap cause I was an American in a Japanese company. Now in my own country, I feel like Iím being disrespected. Everything is not about how much money you make. You could be the richest man in the world but if nobody respects you then it donít mean shit. You canít buy respect. It should be earned. And thatís what Iím all about.

Now Rashad wanna put his two cents in. Rashad remains to be a boy under me. He wins a few fights, and some of them I thought the judges fell asleep during the fight and woke up and saw him playing with his nipples and guessed he won. He knocked Chuck Liddell out when Chuck wasnít even the same man anymore. And now he thinks heís on my level. Yeah he talks about how he beat Forrest and I lost. But when I fought Forrest that was the worst Rampage I had ever seen. And I still know in my heart I won that fight. So now heís Mr. All Cocky and says I got a big mouth and talk a lot of smack. If my memory serves me correctly, heís the one that got into my face after the Jardine fight and started talking trash when he was the one that was originally supposed to fight me that night, but he told Dana on the phone he didnít want to fight. He wanted to keep his belt longer. Now, Iím not saying whether or not I would have beaten Machida, but I wouldnít have went out like a bitch like the way he did. So Iím the one that was looking forward to the Rashad fight the most. I have always been a fighter my whole life. As a kid my family treated me like shit which made me the person who I am today. This is why when I meet people I treat people the way I want to be treated (unless they approach me wrong or piss me off). I grew up thinking that I wasnít even important to my family which made me not even care about myself. Thatís why I can get knee-ed in the face fifteen times and come back for more. Thatís why I can get my legs seriously hurt in a fight and still try to win. Thatís why I can get my ribs broken in a fight &andnot tap out because my whole life I never thought I mattered to anybody or anybody cared about me. But now I have kids that love me and care about me and Iím not used to people caring about me but it feels good! Iím a very loyal person. Wolves are the most loyal animals on the planet. I was very loyal to the UFC, but now I owe all my loyalty to my kidsÖ the ones who really care for me. The majority of my fights on the street I fought for free and they all were with emotion. I am a fighter, I will always be a fighter but my professional fights that were fought with emotion, I ended them all in devastating fashion. I am the wrong fighter that should fight pissed off professionally. I donít even consider it fair. So Rashad says he will fight me for free. I will gladly meet him at any gym & fight him just to shut his mouth up. And I mean that for real!
Wow... I don't know what to think of this. Aside from the internet pissing contest going on here, I'm mind boggled about his comment on PRIDE events. If Rampage is being truthful then they DO rig the events in some way. (If they instruct them to keep it standing for a few rounds etc..), I wonder if UFC does something like that (even if Rampage says they don't).

Other then that I just don't know who is telling more truth here Rampage or Rashad/Dana....

They are just building up a grudge match for his return to the UFC after he finishes his movie. It'll be all dramatic. Their face off, time on TUF, bad words after the fact...blah...blah....blah. Two of the UFC's best shit-talkers who can typically back up their words. Honestly I'd rather just see them fight than talk. I don't care if they like or don't like each other. They are professional fighters and I buy PPVs to watch professional fights. I watch TUF because it is like picking at stuff stuck in your teeth. Socially unacceptable but strangely gratifying.

i think its important to note rampage is talking about fights being put back on the feet when the ground game slows down, as opposed to forcing fighters to stay standing for early rounds.

a small distinction i know, but its the difference between fixing fights and just keeping a fight exciting for fans
