Rampage is very determined to win this fight. I reckon he will win by First Round KO.

I'd join his game just so I could get on the mic and tell him "Lets Squash This"

That is absurd they both started fighting at around the same time and no one was making money then. Chuck stuck around too long because his ego wouldn't allow him to let go of the fame and everything that comes with it not because he loves getting laid out by guys with broken arms.

Rampage has the right view about this it is his current job not the definition of his existence. If all he cared about was money he would stick around too long getting his brains beaten in for paychecks like Ken Shamrock and Tank Abbot. If you value ego and glory above the quality of your life and in turn your families then you are a jackass.

Rampage looks good.

Those punches and kicks at the end look brutal.

Quinton is a different person and fighter than he was back then, don't be fooled into thinking the Rampage from back then is what you see today when Quinton enters the Octagon.

No one is the same person they were in 1999. Everyone changes over long periods of time he was a kid then and now he is an adult.

Only same age as Overeem near enough, who has strived to become a better fighter over those recent years since the end of Pride, Overeem is a class example of fighters coming out of that era of Pride that ether chose to cash in on there name and live on past against those who chose to evolve with the sport and become better fighters.

I think it's safe to say that Rampage has been in more wars then Overeem, and that definitely changes how some fighters look at their careers. So comparing fighters who started around the same time, and not taking into account the battles they have been in, isn't fair.

Overeem peaked way later than Rampage did. It's only recently (last 3 or so years) Overeem has been considered a high level fighter.
