“I think that if I fought Wanderlei Silva in the UFC I would have beat him. Wanderlei was the Chuck Liddell of Pride. If you were beating Wanderlei on the ground, the referee’s would stand you right up. It happened to me. It happened to other fighters that fought him…. Me and Silva don’t even talk to each other. Silva is the type of guy that thinks everyone should be afraid of him. The way I react around him is different. I am not afraid of Wanderlei Silva. They call him ‘The Axe Murder’ because he destroys people in his fights. They threw him chumps and he murdered them. Look at his record of guys he fought. This guy is ‘The Chump Murderer.’ I speak my mind around him and he looks at me all crazy like I shouldn’t be saying that. I think some of the referees took payoffs in Pride. In Japan, I promise you something was up.”

While a guest on the Opie and Anthony radio show, reigning UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson reflected on his two crushing losses to Wanderlei Silva while the two competed under the Pride FC banner overseas in Japan. It’s widely believed that Silva will drop down to middleweight after his upcoming fight with Keith Jardine at UFC 84: “Ill Will,” which would put a damper on seeing a third match up — this time inside the Octagon — anytime soon.

He sure likes to bitch about that fight alot lol. I don't really care, I think Rampage has a terrible time with guys who use the clinch and knees, and Shogun would have just beat him up for the belt right after if he won it.

I still think Wandy is better, but IMO, Shogun would get owned this time around

I guess when he's referring to chumps they threw at Silva he's including himself too?

part of that is true but the ref was not the one kneeing him into a coma.

I really can't wait until Rampage finally gets dealt with. I want him to lose that belt soooo bad.

I AGREE 100% WITH RAMPAGE!!!!

The UFC threw Chuck a bunch of wrestlers with barely decent striking, in PRIDE they favored the stand up fighters the most and messed up stuff was happening like fixed fights and payoffs.

Rampage was beating Wandy BOTH TIMES. The first time he should have won IMO. No way in hell a UFC ref would have stood the fight up. Rampage was working. But sure enough they stood it up. Second time around Rampage won the first round. Held his own on the feet and won on the ground. But the second fight there's no real excuse for the ending since he should have took him down instead of trade but maybe he said F it since it would have gotten stood back up.

But I agree with him. In the UFC both fights with Wandy would have ended in TKO/KO fashion except with W's in the win column for Rampage. I won't make excuses for Shogun he straight F'd him up. But that happens to every fighter and it's their job to come back better then ever and he has.

Let's examine Wandy's recent record...

LOSS Chuck Liddell - owned by Page twice
LOSS Dan Henderson - Rampage beat him, and A. Silva owned him
LOSS Cro Cop - owned by mid-level heavies in the UFC
WIN Kazuyuki Fujita - decent fighter, far from top 10
WIN Ricard Arona (decision)
LOSS Ricardo Arona (decision). Ricardo Arona hasn't beaten anybody decent since decision against Hendo in 2002, another Pride :"legend"
WIN Kazuhiro Nakamura - Pride can
WIN Hidehiko Yoshida - Judoka who got lost on his way to the dojo
LOSS Mark Hunt - another Pride "legend", MMA record 8-5. Known as the kickboxer who almost tapped Fedor
WIN Quinton Jackson - DING DING DING!!! A notable win

So basically Wandy has not beaten anybody who could survive in the UFC since knocking out 2004 version of Quinton Jackson. Quinton would own him today in the cage without the referee stopping them every five seconds.

PRIDE fans need to wake the hell up and smell the coffee. Wandy's been "past his prime" since 2004.

Did you forget that Henderson won the first round of the fight against anderson. He didnt get owned, he got caught.

...Rampage is a pride fighter...
