Coming up on September 24th, the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship will be on the line as current champion Jon "Bones" Jones faces one of the nastiest punchers to ever compete in the sport, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.

One fighter who undeniably has more history with both of these men than anyone else is top 205 pound contender "Suga" Rashad Evans.

I don't think Evans is right about rampage running on fumes from pride. Jackson hit the gas station before his destination in the ufc. He did win the title and defeat a dangerous opponent in Dan Henderson to defend it. Oh and do something he never did in pride, beat an ax murderer into convulsions. He just needs a tune-up.

Beating Wanderlei wasn't really that big of an accomplishment, that's the ******* twilight of his career. I think I'd have to agree with Rashad that Rampage's time is done.

I'm pulling hard for Rampage but, I gotta think that he's past his prime and doesn't always commit to the fight.

I think its a bit arrogant to have a firm belief that you know what's going on inside anyones head.

I think there's a big difference between losing your fire, and not taking training serously.

I dont give a **** who you are, if someone loses 45 pounds in 3 months of training, they're taking that **** serious.
