Rashad: In the cage Rampage whined like a little girl

"In positions that I had I was like I know he’s going to quit but he didn’t quit and I’m definitely impressed with that. You know he definitely a fighter, He’s a legend in this sport and for me to say that I don’t respect him and respect that, that I would be a lie because that I do."

"But at the same time on the personal side, why every single time he loses he has to make excuses? Just say you know what, I lost, and that’s the end of it. "

"When I had him against the cage, I was kneeing him in his thigh, punching him in his thigh, and if you ask him if you read the article that he did at Fighter’s Only, he said I was hurting his knee that was already messed up already. He said, how did he know? Did he talk to the doc? No, I just could tell every time he hit he f------ whined like a little girl, that’s why.”

“I told him what I was going to do. Everybody knows what I was going to do. If you watched the Countdown show, it showed what I was going to do. The Primetime show showed what I was going to do, you know. I’m going to wrestle, I’m a wrestler, I said what I’m going to do. I’m going to wrestle."

"The problem with him is that he underestimated. I knew at the press conference when he said Michael Bisping said that I was weak, I knew he was in trouble because the moment he’s locked up against the cage and he tried to get me off the cage and tried to put me to the cage, I brought him back to the cage and made him stay there until Herb Dean broke it up. The look in his face was priceless because he knew at that moment Michael Bisping LIED TO HIM.”

    “I mean, what [does] an exciting fight mean? It means that we just go and stand toe-to-toe and act like we don’t have any training at all? I’m not going to do that and I would never do that. I’m not going to stand there and go toe-to-toe like I have on you know 30 ounce gloves on, that’s just stupid because I know better. I know when I’m wearing four ounce gloves and there’s like a cast underneath, I know that it doesn’t take much to get caught with a big shot. I’m trying to win, you know, To sit there and go to toe-to-toe. If that’s the only chance a guy has of beating me, I’m not going to give him that only chance. When I go into a fight, my goal is to try to eliminate as much as he can do to me while maximizing everything that I can do to him. So if I go in there and go into his game plan and therefore defeat myself, why even compete if I’m going to defeat myself?”

what wasn't exciting about the fight. rashad was the one keeping things exciting. he was moving, jab move, throw punch takedown. stick rampage up against the cage. rashad has a weak chin. he knows it. so, he made a good game plan. exciting one. rampage on the other hand don't know anything else. he is the boring fighter.that is why fans boo fighters. even if they say good stuff in the ring after fights. but, it is the interviews fans remember.

The fight was boring. You don't have to slug it out to be exciting. Try going for a sub once in awhile.

Rashad went on & on how he was going to knock Rampage out, then says why would would i stand & trade with him that would be stupid. There are plenty of fighters who use wrestling & Jitz & are exciting but he's not one of them, take a guy like Jon Jones he mixes his standup & his ground game & creates really exciting fights cause he goes for the finish & doesn't just try to dry hump his way to a decision. If it wasn't for the fans he wouldn't have a job & imo his job is too entertain the fans & he doesn't do a good job at it & he wonders why he doesn't have many fans.

It sickens me when guys like Rashad have to explain shit like this to the fans. Rashads is exciting, I'd rather watch him fight than a one dimensional slugger any day.
