Rampage needs a new diaper
Conspiracy theorizing, hypocrisy, and general all-around whining. I think my favorite part of this article is when he claims the UFC is trying to make him look bad by putting him against wrestlers. If only there were another combat sport out there, that didn't allow grappling and only let you punch. Oh, but there's also when he claims he'll fight whoever they put in front of him, and then later says that he's doing everything he can to get out of the last fight on his contract.
I won't be sorry to see anyone who has this attitude go. The whole "I came to fight, he just wanted to wrestle" thing is so much bullshit and nobody's been spouting it longer or louder than him. See you later, Rampage. Don't let the door take you down on the way out.
"They don't want me to be bigger than the UFC. The movie that I did was bigger than the UFC."
Really Rampage, the goddamn A Team movie was bigger than the UFC? A movie that was far eclipsed in box office figures by cinematic gems like Charlie's Angels 2 and GI Joe?
Kind of old news; last night they announced that Rampage's final fight will be against Shogun. This is a fight he has wanted forever.
Rampage is a really over emotional guy. I'm guessing he was pissed off that his return to Japan went off the way it did and that was the final straw. The UFC has apparently been trying to dial down his contract pay citing that he has lost his appeal. It's basically all over money.
The A Team was a great movie! As for rampage.... Well I suppose when you've had your head kicked in that many times you might start seeing things that are not there.
I believe different types of jobs attract and retain certain types. The type it takes to run big companies are often sneaky, conniving, shiny bums.
The U.F.C. , as awesome as it is, would no doubt be packed full of the cunts, so to me Rampages conspiracies may have some credit, even if they are emotionally charged.
With the time he has served, I reckon he would have had a pretty good insight as to how things are run.
I've also noticed, that when a fighter crosses Dana,(A-team biz.) they're gonna have a hard time in the U.F.C.

Reason: dana, a team etc
Sorry but didn't they JUST give Page a shot at the title? Didn't he win against Lyoto? And even though he lost his last fight, he had a shitty injury in the lead up ... could have happened to anyone.
Love the guy, will be sad to see him go, wish it could be ended on good terms though.
Regardless of fighting skills, have not had much use for Rampage since he ran over that woman while having an emotional fit and by showing his metality and total lack of class while coaching TUF.
I Think he is one of the funniest fighters out there. And i think his knees are shot...so probably end of the line for him. The fact he dislikes those money grubbing Dana and Silva doesn't mean he is wrong. He was deliberately disrespected because they wanted to pay him less...
