After watching the video, i think people are seeing it in the wrong context.

Can't say i disagreed with a thing he said.

The Tito fight could have gone either way

However i feel if rampage wants to talk shit he's gonna need to back it up

Jackson v. Sonnen

Book it



that would sell really good

I would take a one armed WW with polio to beat Rampage in a decision given that he actually wanted to win.

Rampage could easily have been a top 10 greatest 205er of all time, what a fucking disappointment.

You have to be a fucking loser to have enough talent and heart to beat Hendo in wrestling and then drop a decision to Forrest because you want to be an exciting fighter.

Why did Forrest get a free pass after running out? I like him and everything, but just about any other fighter would have received serious backlash for that stunt.



Same thing happened last year, when him, Torres, and Rashad all made some type of a reference of something rape related. Only Torres was punished.

There is a major backlash, primarily that everyone hates him now. As for the rape jokes blame the UFC Torres was only punished to deter other fighters from being free to make offensive comments. Nothing that bad was said.

Maybe nothing that offensive from Forrest or Torres, but Rashad's comment was pretty offensive...

I do understand why everyone is ripping on Rampage about the cry baby comments. Rightly so, but to say he would get owned by Chael based on what? Those are two different weight classes and Rampage has always been tough to takedown. If he would lose it is because he is old. A prime Rampage would murder Chael.

That is giving Forrest no credit. Forrest is a great fighter in terms of skills and at one time had great heart. He didnt just beat Rampage. He was beating Evans before the KO the same way. He beat Shogun and Rampage back to back and was on his way to beating Evans. Reallistically people need you realize that Forrest was legit, but he had no power and no chin. Still he has beaten some of the biggest names the sport has seen. If Forrest had a chin and high level power he would dominated 205 IMO. Too bad for him that he has maybe the worst power and one of the worst chins we have seen in the weight class. Still he has done quite a bit to have the two worst things a fighter can have going against them holding him done. I dont even like Forrest, but Im being real.
