Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Rampage sounding off on his status with the UFC:

"After I leave the UFC, I'm done with them! Just like when I left PRIDE. You remember when I left PRIDE? It's over. I was very loyal to PRIDE. I fought for PRIDE, and I fought the way I fought to put butts in seats. I took risks, slammed people and stuff like that. PRIDE did a good job. They built me up. I wasn't that good when I first came out. I fought Sakuraba and they built me up and then threw me in some tough fights. That's the way you're supposed to do it. Now, the UFC, I was a better fighter when I came there. My second fight, they throw me to Chuck Liddell. The fans didn't know who I was. I knocked him out, the fans booed me. That changed me, who I am towards the fans. I used to be the nicest guy towards fans. My first time getting booed. How are you gonna boo somebody for knocking somebody out? But I got a whole other opinion on that. And now, the UFC's just throwing me all these boring fighters, these game planners, these wrestlers. I'm the type of fighter who you should match up with people who want to fight excitingly. You know what I'm saying? Cuz I'm gonna be the type of fighter who puts butts in seats.

"I can't even negotiate with anybody. I'm not even negotiating with anybody right now. I got one fight with the UFC. After I do that fight with the UFC, then I can negotiate and figure out what I'm gonna do next. I got so much other stuff going on, I could take a year off from fighting, and I don't even care. There's other things I wanna do. I'm more than a fighter. I'm an entertainer. I like entertaining people. I like making people laugh, I like entertaining people. I like fighting. I like beating people up. But, I still gotta heal up. I'm not jumping right back into fighting, right away. I got my knees to worry about. I've been fighting injured for a while."

And on another page is this:


Quote:
"I would love to fight somebody like 'Shogun.' Somebody like Forrest," Jackson said. "Somebody who beat me before. Somebody who wants to put on a good fight. I'm tired of fighting these guys who are cowards. I call them cowards. They just run around the cage, they game plan and they take you down. It's okay to take people down, but they just hump you and lay down on top of you the whole time. That's what's disgusting to me."

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

The Belcher/Paul Harris* fight was great. Really wish Belcher would just get a sleeve on that giant ass Johnny Cash tattoo, that shit is distracting...

The Diaz brothers are just goddamned machines.**






*Yes, I know his name isn't Paul Harris.

**Pot powered douche bag machines, but still.

I'm so sick of this loser. They really should just let him go so he can fade into obscurity where he belongs. Fucking simpleton.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

I'd love to see a Jose Aldo/Chan Sung Jung fight. I assume it would be quite similar to the Junior Dos Santos/Roy Nelson fight. An elite striking machine against a guy who has no quit in him.

Hunt out due to injury. Lavar Johnson will replace him vs Struve.

Pretty good line up of fights tonight. win or lose I hope Josh Barnett finds his way back to the UFC. I'd love to see Cormier there too.

Thompson got robbed. Ugh, Gibert is one of the most overrated guys out there. There's no way he could hang with the UFCs top tier.

And Melendez Thompson was exactly what you'd expect once you got passed the second round.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Can't wait to see Cormier in the UFC, though it seems like his hands may be as brittle as Fedor's since he thinks he broke one of them again last night.
