Rampage is a fat dude at heart. I remember watching a UFC Countdown that featured him & all he wanted to do between training is eat french fries & play video games The funny thing is... he'll probably do pretty good in the Bellator heavyweight division

He better bulk up, if he does this the wrong way he'll end up embarrassing himself.

Dolce has got his work cut out for him if Rampage wants to make 265.

In all honesty, it's the smart move. Bellator's LHW class is starting to stack up but HW is wide open with the depart of Cole Slaw Conrad.

I think it's smart of him, he knows what he does and doesn't like in fighting and training...the HW's typically have cardio issues and can't wrestle as good as the UFC's LHW division either.

Not a.terrible decision by Rampage. He's had a little trouble making the 206 lbs weight cut before. However i think he'll be a small HW.

Hope it works out. I have no interest in a slower Rampage with worse cardio.

He's 6'1". By today's standards, he should be MW or even WW.

So do we have a dilemma? If Rampage and Kongo both just signed and train together at Wolfslair and get in the next 8 man HW tourney, it's probable that they'd meet and have to fight each other. Rampage doesn't sound like a man that wants to try and make 205 anymore so I'm curious to hear each guy's thoughts on facing each other when they are training partners.

I was thinking the same thing.
