depends on what kind of shape Rampage comes in, Rashad showed good conditioning and might just be able to out work Rampage for a decision if Rampage gets lazy like Thiago did.

Thiago is overrated with no gas tank in my book... I mean Rashad had a great game plan but I was surprise on how the fight went.... thought they were gonna trade more... Guess them not doing that benefited Rashad

Rampage would have KTFO of Jardine if that fight went on another 10 seconds, Jardine got saved by that bell in the third round.

Rampage hasnt came into any UFC fight out of shape. And with all the motivation he has to KO Rashad, no way he does when this fight happens.

After all the sit talking between Rampage and Rashad do you really think Rampage would take his training camp lightly??????

Rampage has a lot to prove with a victory over Rashad. And him beating Rashad would also make Rampage the winner in their little "I would Knock you the F#uk out" trash talk they did between each other during TUF 10.

When has Rampage ever showed up for a fight out of shape recently?????

He never has is the answer.

So why would he do it vs Rashad?

I feel foolish even getting into the argument. Rashad would not come in with the same gameplan that he did for thiago against Rampage. He might test it out and see if he could take Page down but it will wear him out trying to hold Rampage down. Honestly i see both fighters just wanting that one punch knock out and if that happens page might win by brute force. Now if Rashad keeps his head cool and plays it smart his boxing and speed are so much better than Rampage's it really is not even funny. That could be a point win for rashad through just more strikes.

Speed yes... Rashad's Boxing isn't better than Rampage's... Page's striking Defense is way better than Rashad's, that's for damn sure. So lets not get over our head here.

Silva and Rampage are two different fighters... in almost every way. His gameplan would be differnt. Plus, he dominated that whole fight until that one punch that stumbled him.

He would have a solid shot against Rampage IMO. Especially since Rampage can't get his head in the fight game. Too busy being hollywood.

That said, Rampage is still going to take him out.
Agreed. Rampage hits harder than the both of them. After seeing all of Rashads fights I realize he isnt a great striker, or a great wrestler or a great sub guy or anything. Rampage has good TD defense and better boxing. What Rashad can do great is bob his head up and down real fast(joke)
