And according to Duff Holmes, trainer for Matt Hamill, "there's just no way around that."

"The Hammer" (10-2) will try to establish his place among the light heavyweight elite when he battles former division champion Quinton Jackson in the main event of UFC 130: "Rampage vs. Hamill" on May 28 in Las Vegas.

I really want to pick Hamill, but then again this is coming from the manager, and as I've been saying Hamill seems willing to trade with people.

can't decide.

If this prediction is correct, it will be a snoozer.

Hendo and Lindland couldn't out wrestle Rampage, Evans had a pretty tough job after he was out for over a year and spent almost all of his training camp cutting weight. Hamill has struggled to take down the likes of Franklin and Jardine so I have serious doubts he can take Rampage down.
Also Rampage has brought in a nutritionist and a strength and conditioning coach and devision I wrestlers for his camp.
Also this is a huge step up in competition for Hamill with his toughest opponent before being either Jones or Franklin, both of which ruined him.

I honestly don't get what more Rampage could could do for a camp to convince people he's taking this fight seriously.

I think speed will be the key here, I say 2nd round KO Hamil. But what do I know look at my crappy record this season.

you see Hamil ko'ing Rampage? imo i think this reflects your crappy record quite accurately. Hamil can beat an unmotivated Quinton Jackson, but no way in hell he beats Rampage
