When i watched 24/7 i couldnt help but thinking how badly rampage wants to beat rashad. usually i see fighters hyping fights etc but with rampage it looked like a dofferent type of emotion. I personally cannot wait for this fight and i think if Rashad stands with him then it wont last more than 2 rounds

So I don't want to hear any excuses about Rampage being out of shape.

Deal?
I dont make up excuses for fighters losing any ways. Its quite clear hes in shape though.

How do you see rashad winning this fight btw?

Looks to be in decent shape, but I think we've seen him in better (a little more shredded, etc.). Though, how can one really tell on the basis of a single image? I think Jackson is hungry for a win in this one... it's personal, and you can tell he absolutely does not want to lose to Rashad. I don't think he'd short change himself by showing up out of shape or not training his arse off... not for this fight. He's talked too mean a game to not bring the noise come fight night. Really looking forward to it, to be honest. This is once instance where the trash talking has proven uber effective in peaking my interest in a showdown.

Stoppage by Rashad in the late 2nd, early 3rd. I think Rashad will stay away from Rampage's power by staying out of the pocket to strike, than drive him against the cage and take him down repeatedly.

If I'm wrong and Rashad can't take Rampage down, then I may rethink Rashad winning. But Rashad has some of the best takedowns in MMA, so we'll just have to see.

Is there really anything for Rashad to be proud of if he just lays down on Rampage for 3 rounds?
You call it laying and praying, I'm a fan so I call it dominating Rampage's will.

Is it Rashad's fault that his wrestling is better than anything Rampage can throw at him?
