Well at least he is straight up about it, can't ask for anymore than that. That's cool, I feel like the MMA world can live without Rampage. I appreciate that he has a cult following and all, but like he said, some fighters just don't have it in them to fight beyond their prime. Then again, he is only, what, 33? He ain't even that old for a fighter so I guess it was just a case of how soon could he break into the entertainment business.
If Vinnie Jones, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, The Rock, etc can get work on a consistent basis (even if it is mostly straight-to-DVD nonesense) then I am confident that Rampage is going to earn the money he needs to retire. That's not because I think he is a better actor than them or has more charisma, but lets be real, than current state of the commercial aspect of the film industry is pretty lackluster right now. I imagine he'll feature in the sequel to The Expendables. Good for him if that's what matters.
