Well he said that due to the pressure from fighting which made it difficult to balance the commitments of movie promotions etc. It wasn't due to the movie itself, it was due to having a big fight while the movie related stuff was still happening.
I say thanks and good luck to Rampage. The guy has had 40 fights. He may not be as old as Couture but he's more fights, and more fights than most. 40 fights in MMA is a lot, the training is so rough it must be an absolute chore to keep doing it when you've already done everything in the sport that you are ever likely to do again. And it's not like he has made a career of taking people down and laying on them, or being elusive or whatever. He's gone in there every time and thrown down, he's a fighter to the core... but he's had enough and that's understandable.
He was in epic fights in Pride, he came into the UFC knocking heads off, he dethroned the seemingly unstoppable Chuck Liddell, had an amazing string of fights with Wandy, beat Machida and so on. He's fought the best out there and has provided a LOT of entertainment in the process. Rampage is an absolute legend and everyone should respect his choices from here on out. If it's money he wants, go for it. He isn't any different to the rest of us, we all need money in this world so if he can get that without having to go through training camps and getting punched in the face then more pwer to him.
The Hammill fight is a waste considering the end is near, but I have always and will always be a fan, I'll cheer him on regardless.
