Chael is gonna spam the takedown and grind out a decision. Bad matchup. Should have been Fedor vs. Rampage.

Chael is a better striker (technically) and can take Rampage down in the center of the cage and submit him, but....


Rampage has great hips on the cage and Chael is always looking for a way out of the fight.

Rampage has traditionally had some of the best takedown defense.

And Chael is not a better striker in any way, shape, or form.

LOLOLOL @ Rampage having good takedown defense, or anything about what he "could" do positively in this match up. He will show up, and be tenative to the point where we question if he even tried at all.

I love Chael, but he's the better striker? All these old timer fights are disappointing. I just hope this fight doesn't suck.

Rampage has been shit for s long long long time.. he could not ko matt Hamill years ago. Cheal wins easy. Rampage never evolved, he actually got worse as time went on..

Rampage is the more POWERFUL striker, but he just throws hard slow punches. That's it.

He has great hips. But this 300lb older rampage isn't the wrestler he use to be.

King Mo was just too scared and hesitant. Chael just doesn't give a f&ck!

You seemed surprised that he got worse as time went on.

Thats the natural course of things.

I’d have rather seen Rampage against Fedor.

Chael isn't the better striker.
I know he's a natural competitor but he's just looking for pay checks fighting at this weight.
In spite of being well past his best he is just not effective fighting above 85.

Can ANYTHING you just said not be applied directly to Rampage?

This is a pick em fight in my eyes. I like Chael and he is who I will be rooting for, but Rampage is more than capable of landing a punch or 3, and Chael has a tendency to quit when things get tough, especially with black fighters it seems. That being said, when Chael shows up to actually fight, he is a handful for anyone in the game outside of the elite guys, he has a good chin, great wrestling and he isn't afraid to try to win by submission if it is there. Rampage is only going to try to win by doing one thing: knockout punch. If Chael can avoid that, this will be a good win for him.

Sure. Rampage has always been about the money rather than being in MMA for the love of fighting/competing.

Both guys throughout their careers have been very vocal about their (very different) motivations and in this case it's just business as usual for Rampage - That money would look GOOD in his pocket!

Sure Rampage is also past his best but he doesn't have enough fights at heavy for us to make a judgement on whether it's a fit for him. Very likely it's not but we don't know.

With Chael, we do know 100% The percentage of his losses that happened at light heavy vs middleweight...the numbers ain't great.
