After some shuffling around of the upcoming UFC 130 fight card, Rampage Jackson has gone from taking on Thiago Silva in the co-main event to fighting Matt Hamill in the main event. He's not particularly thrilled with the change.

Rampage doesn't sound very motivated which isn't a good thing. He will more than likely get the win but I'm really pulling for Hamill in this one!!!!

Who was Rampage's original opponent?


I'm really considering picking Hamill.

Rampage better get excited for this fight or he will get upset. Hamill has been coming forward in his fights and throwing pretty heavy shots, granted his stand up is rough looking, but he hits hard and is getting better each time. Rampage always whines about no fighter wanting to engage with him and now he has one, but now hamill is boring and can't get himself hyped for the fight, to me that spells disaster for Rampage. I'll be picking hamill and hoping he stays off his back.

I think so many people have the preconception that Rampage = Not interested in his profession anymore, that if i was him, i would talk about how not excited for the fight i am every time im fighting. Use that reputation as a tactical advantage.

Anyway, i think we'll see how motivated he is during the weigh-ins. The amount of face fat on rampage has been indicative of how good of shape he's in throughout his entire UFC run. Look for the face fat.

Thiago Silva, but there was something wrong with his urine. Apparently he's part horse and the UFC only allows human fighters.

Rampage is not thrilled with the change but he has his hands full with Hamill.

Many fans are overlooking this fight. Do not be surprised if Hamill pulls an upset.

I took a lot of heat when I said Antonio Silva was going to surprise everyone in the Strike Force Grand Prix and look what happened.

I know what you are going to say. So what if I predicted the outcome of a fight... That, alone, does not make me an expert.

True, but I gave Silva what he deserved which was a chance which many fans did not give him.

Anyway, this is going to be a tough fight for Rampage. It can go either way of course, but I am hoping Hamill can close the distance and take it to the ground.

The ring rusted Rampage that showed up against Rashad or Forrest would still beat Hamill.

I didnt bash anyone, its my opinion that Hamill doesnt have much of a chance.

Sorry if youre Hamills family member or something but get over it.
