    I'm surprised there isn't more talk and hype about this fight. :nono: Not sure about the rest of you guys, but I'm 230498230948x more excited about this fight than seeing Nog/Mir and Griffin/Evans duke it out for the belts. This could EASILY be the main event of another card if it weren't for the two title fights.

    Silva's MT clinch was sick in their first two bouts, but 'Page isn't the same fighter now as he was back in Pride. And those two losses could very well be attributed to Wandy's knees, kicks, and stomps to the head when he was grounded. It's gonna definitely be interesting to see how each fighter adapts in the Octagon under UFC rules. :coold:

    And any news as to who coaches 'Page now? I remember reading that Juanito retired/quit after Jackson's loss to Griffin..is he just training on his own now?

    The last I heard Rampage signed with Wolfslair in England.

    we all know it's not not likely this fight will go to a decision given these heavy strikers like to bang w/ each other. It's definitely going to end as a KO or TKO again.

    Wandy has great confidence coming into this match, considering he brutally massacred Jackson twice in Pride, not to mention he's also coming off of a 36-second epic KO of Jardine.

    Jackson, on the other hand, just lost his belt to Griffin under a controversial decision, and has run into trouble with the law multiple times. He's been keeping himself pretty low-key for the past couple of months (remember all those MMA interviews and promo shit he did just after he was crowned the LHW champ?), which kinda tells me he's back in focus for his training. :cool:

    so who takes this? :noes:

    The odds for the fight are virtually even and I still can't figure out why that is. :dunno:

    I think Rampage is afraid. He even asked to train with Chute Boxe who turned him down. I'd bet my house on Wandy :big grin:

    As much as I like the guy, this is troof. :hs:

    If it weren't for his 2 victories on an overrated Liddell and that epic battle with Hendo, he'd just be another one of your run-of-the-mill 205ers. :hs:

    The dude does have a cool body slam highlight reel though. :coold:

    I'm honestly not that excited about this fight for some reason. I think Silva will take it, though.

    Rampage isn't that bad, his wrestling gave wand some trouble in those fights.

    But wand = better bjj and better striking
    Rampage = better take downs

    i want to say rampage to be different, but ill be a sheep and say wand :p

    look at the past two years and tell me Wand should be the favorite. Rampage;'s only loss has been a decision was extremely questionable.

    Wand was KO'd twice, lost a decision, and mauled a guy with a glass chin.


    I think wandy will take it, but to assume this is the same two guys that fought back then is crazy.

    IMO, the deciding factor will be their caps and mental states. Rampage just doesnt seem right in the head, his camp is pretty meh, and Wand is training with much better people, and hopefully he can destruct rampage.

    they'll brawl it out and hopefully have some highlight material.


    I love both of them /nohomo Wand's style is fantastic and Rampage is entertaining as fuck both have ups/downs but rampage is slightly abit more overrated and IMO g ot fucked by judges.


    i want wandy to win but i can see rampage winning it in first or second round. Same with wand


    either way

    TKO/ko in first or second
