Better striker? And ground game? I assume you think Rampage is some kind of pathetic Brandon Vera?

Sorry bra giving him next to no chance when he clearly has hands that can end it at any second, and proved his TDD against Machida and showed a MUCH better fight then Thiago did...

Rampage is going to look A LOT bigger the you think he is, and if you think Thiago is going to control him on the ground you cant be more wrong.

And the fact you think Thiago is better on the feet and your confident if it stays standing, says enough for me on how confused u must be

This is gonna be a gritty fight. I don't see Rampage holding back at all. I felt he held back in some of his recent fights to play the conservative game. Silva is getting KO'd here.

Actually I think right now Brandon Vera could beat Rampage, in fact I don't see Rampage anymore all I see is Quinton Jackson a mere shadow of the fighter he once was, all I see coming from him over the coming year is the fall of a legend, just like what happened to Chuck Liddell and Cro Cop last year.

At least he gets another loss to his P4P record. Machida-Evans-Rampage.

This fight is a toss up for me, ramapge is one of my favorite fighter. But silva is deadly, when he is healthy he is easily one of the best fighters in the world.

I think Rampage takes it but would not be surprised if Thiago won. I don't see Thiago KOing Rampage. I mean Rampage has a solid chin and Thiago hasn't even KO'd any fighter that is that good.

If Rampage is in good shape I think it is a pretty good matchups for Rampage. Another slow fighter that likes to bang. And Thiago doesn't have the best wrestling, good BJJ but not wrestling.

I think this fight is a toss up but I think Thiago's chin isn't the greatest and he's been protective of it lately.

Should be interesting but I see this one going to the cards. Wouldn't rule out a Rampage KO though.

Its now coming out that one of the drug tests from UFC 125 is still being processed. It could be thiagos and that could be the real problem with his fight against Rampage.
