Jackson: Teixeira won't stand with me

source: mmamania.com

"I could get excited about this type of fight, but it has been brought to my attention from my management and stuff that -- and they check stuff out -- that it shows Glover is really doing a lot of work on planning to take me down and holding me against the cage ... stuff like that," he claimed. "He's going to pretend to stand up to just take me down, which is okay, I'm not surprised. I don't know what's going through his head."

"I just think that he's a great ground fighter, so if he really wants to win this fight, why then trade with me at my strong point?" Jackson continued. "Why not get me at my weakest point, which is on the ground? That's probably what he's thinking, but he's got a new thing coming because I've trained to take this fight anywhere. If he takes me down I'm getting right back up. I really feel like he's going to have a hard time taking me down."

I am a big fan as well (against better judgement) and while i do hope everything comes true written above i highly doubt it.   While i do think Glover is slightly overhyped is still think a lot of the hype is warranted. He is pretty brutal,both on the ground and standing up. Rampage has some good boxing,he can hit hard but it is hardly at the highest level in MMA. Plus he always keeps that big head of him awfully high.   I do hope that he ''retires'' on a W but considering he is lack of conditioning last time and his problems with decent wrestlers (of late) i do believe Glover will take him down and pound him out.   But will see,i think its cool that you still have faith. Perhaps i am to realistic about these things.

Rampage is toast.He should have just stuck it out in Japan and kept slamming people.

I believe Rampage is motivated enough to beat Glover and I will stick with Rampage to tko Glover in round 2. This site has become Rampage bashing central and when he beats the overhyped Glover you can look back on this thread and see that not everybody bashes Rampage ....... I'm still a big Rampage fan and will always be.

According to Glover himself, that is exactly what happened.I don't expect to see him get caught like that again.

Maldonado is a tough guy, but check the record of the guys he beat. Often times they were like 0-2 boxers. I think it had more to do with Glover dropping his hands and almost taunting with only one foot on the ground.

Can't help but think Rampage will get schooled and look absolutely awful... if this is his last fight in the UFC I REALLY want it to be a great fight, I don't care about the outcome one bit. Grapple, stand, whatever.But I'm just sitting here thinking he won't even put up a fight ... à la Page vs. Bader. Dude's off his rocker lately. Seems so bitter all the damn time.Nobody wants a true legend to go out looking like a fool.

A lot of you are putting too much stock into a lucky punch landed by a former undefeated professional boxer with 21 KOs to his credit (Maldanado).  Rampage does not have the same boxing/striking skills.
