He'll go with whoever offers him the most money on his next contract. He's all about the cheddar.

Rampage will go back to the UFC. I can never picture him being in Strikeforce. He is a big PPV name and he sells tickets and brings in viewers, the UFC would offer him more money than they did Henderson.

As long as he promised not to back out of future fights to film some crappy movies, of course.

The season was awful for both of the fighter's persona, but mainly Rampage's. Rashad never really had a fan base so him being disliked isn't anything new for anyone but Rampage was definitely one of the most popular fighters in the UFC. This TUF just destroyed him. I'm not sure if it was on purpose because he left or what but jesus christ it was awful. I don't play into that stuff because reality shows like to twist someone's words around but had I been a moron and believed that was the true Rampage, I'd hate him too.

I don't think that Dana will let him go. Rampage is a very well known and he is a very exciting fighter. He can hype up fights as well. All in all, he is a very valuable fighter for the UFC to keep on lock down!

for jackson to jump ship to strikeforce after headlining TUF would be one hell of a **** up! Hendo's statement about strikeforce being a viable option is probably still resonating through dana's ears. Dana will move heaven and earth to stop[ that

Rampage can't really jump ship yet, he's still got 3 fights left with the UFC and the only way to get out of that contract is to retire. He'll have to fight 3 times in the UFC if he wants to go to Strikeforce. Even then, the UFC probably reserves the right to match any offer made to Rampage by Strikeforce. So if it's really all about the money (or "respect" which I doubt) I'm sure Rampage would stay anyway.

Given the amount of time between the first and last fights remaining on his contract (which is about 1 year minimum to 3 years max) I'm sure they'll "patch things up" just like Tito and Dana did.I mean there was anamosity between the two and Tito was only out of the UFC for a little over a year.
