lookoutawhale -  Joe is making the right call.  Rampage cant blame Rogan for being a 1 dimensional puncher. Joe is correct in saying that rampage should mix things up. He needs to balance out his kicks and punches with takedowns to keep his opponent guessing. Even when Rampage is losing he doenst change anything up. He just keeps throwing telegraphed punches. He needs to stop being a boxer and fight as a mixed martial artist. But Rampage is right its his fight, but that doesnt mean people have to like it a dry fight like that.

Rampage has been a super boring fighter in the UFC. No takedowns, no kicks just circle circle cirle punch for 5 rounds. He waits 5 rounds for a KO that never comes, loses and then swears he will come back stronger and return as a well rounded mixed martial artist that will harness his kicks and wrestling.

Then the next fight comes around and is just as boring as the last. He puts the rock bottom amount of effort into his fight it seems. This fight will be the same with Bader. It will be 5 rounds of Rampage looking for a KO that will never come.


The exact point I was trying to make put much better than I did.

frontrowbrian -  This is going to be a terrible fight.

Bader won't be able to get Rampage down.

Rampage's KO power is ridiculously overrated. Recent KO's are glass chinned Wand and Chuck.

This fight will be a replay of Rampage/Hamill.

Rampage = Easy Money


I think Rampage's power is still there, he's still hurt lots of other guys he's fought, hasnt he: Jardine, Rashad, Hendo, etc....but i think he just isnt as shapr as before or his "one dimensionality" is really making it easier for opponents to fight him. Still losing to Jones and Hasha doesnt mean he sucks and he still beat Machida, winning the "fight" or not.

I thought Machida would have been able to do more to Rampage and sooner.

jjj2121 -  Rampage has been a plodding one dimensional boxer for years no matter who his opponent is.  He clearly is doing just enough training to get by and isn't motivated to be the best he can be.  He's always been open about fighting for a paycheck and his name is big enough at this point where he can still get paid while not putting forward maximum effort.  He's been painfully boring to watch for years and in all likelihood the Bader fight is going to suck too.

Rogan being honest (and not harsh at all) about this is simply Joe doing his job.

Better comeback:

Rampage didn't seem pissed, rather annoyed. But again maybe Rampage needs to listen. His last fights have been so boring. Joe's just doing his job. I think people talking about it is making it bigger than it really is. Phone Post

If we're being honest about Rampage and his fight style, you guys are correct.

Except its gonna be a 3 round fight so it wont be as long as Rampage's usual fights.

But if he learned to mix in the takedowns with his punches and sprinkled in some kicks, it would open guys up for more power punches and he'd do a lot better.

Now a days he just swings for the fences. You're right.

Most guys can just keep their hands glued to the sides of their head and manage to work their game. As long as they remember to keep the hands up, they can work a gameplan from there.

Fuck him Joe, you don't need to defend yourself to this uneducated baby. Rampage sure is tough when he's picking on reporters and commentators like Joe and Aerial. He should stick to what he's good at like eating cheesburgers, sexually assaulting every female he comes in contact with, and running over pregnant women in a monster truck.

ds1970 -
irishrottie - Its simply Joes style of commentating. At times he gets hung up repeating certain things like the leg kicks for example. Rampage feels like Joe is making him out to have a useless style at times. He feels as if Joe is making it seem like he knows more than him about fighting and what he should do.


I like Joe, but I noticed this too. I also noticed that he sometimes gets hung up on a fighter's size like with Bendo for example. Back when Bendo was in the WEC, commentators really didn't talk about him being a huge lhw, but Joe talks about it every time Bendo fights.
Bendo has muscular legs, but he doesn't look huge to me. He certainly didn't look that big when he fought Cowboy, Pettis, Varner, etc.

 Joe it seems like you're a nice guy and use your intelligence well when conversating/analyzing fights. I'm sure it comes across that you didnt mean to hurt Rampage's feelings; however you must know that Bisping and Rampage are boys, and both of them have talked shit on you in the past for weak shit. First Bisping got mad that you asked the crowd to be nicer/show him some love, instead of the wave of booing he was getting. Now Mr. Jackson is mad at you out of nowhere right before his fight in Japan. I'm sure they have talked nagative about you in the past when together . Its like my grandpa says "birds of a feather assholes and dicks find each other and befriend one another flock together" Me thinks Mr. Jackson knows that you're right but doesn't want to hear it because his ego doesn't like knowing that its not 1987 its 2012 and for a man his age the way he acts is just sad!!! If you don't like how someone is acting talk to him face to face and let him know, like man should like a "human being". No need to put that shit all over the internet and start drama like a Queen...   unless you never had a father figure growing up, and dont know how one should act as a man!!

                                                       

                                             P.S.  Being a man doesn't mean you fight at the drop of a hat if you                                                                                 feel that someone did you worng, that's what animals do.

I wonder if people realized how boring commentary would be if no one offered critiques. Just play by play and mentioning sponsors. Part of the job is to offer other sides and and possibilities. It is for sure not always right, it is needed for entertainment. Nevermind, let's spare everyone's feelings.

Somebody is a sore loser. How funny would it be if Evans beats Jones and the deciding factor was leg kicks. Maybe they should bring Bill Wallace and Jim Brown back since they were so good ! lol

Rampage always says that the old Rampage is back but he seems to forget how old Rampage fought. He used legs kicks and had pretty decent kicks but now he's a bad boxer brawler that will never see a title again. There is really not a lot you can say about Rampage these days, since he has looked like garbage after losing his belt.

Rogan was right about the leg kicks in that fight. Jones' legs were FUCKED UP after that fight from the FEW legs kicks he landed and recieved.

MPA - Rogan is a loud mouth jerk off. He is a comedian, a lame one at that, who somehow got a gig as a commentator. Sue he has since been taking martial arts classes, but big deal. If he wants to show these guys how bad they are fighting, put the mike down and step in the ring.



Pat militech and randy couture would point out why fighters are lossing and what they think they should change in the game plan , just much as rogan does. Rampage's ego just wont let Rogan , or i think anyone tell him what he is doing wrong, not that i blame him, most people dont want to hear it. but your a pro athlete, you have to just suck it up, your career is being analyzed always, thats just what comes with being a pro athlete. Rampage just wants to fight and play Xbox, i get it.

I'm curious as to why Rampage is upset by this, he is usually a very honest guy, (Look at post fight Machida interview) He himself admits that he looks to connect on the chin if his opponent and put them to sleep. If he did listen to the commentary he should have realized that Joe talked more about the reach of Jones and how that meant that Jones attack could be more diversified and how Rampage needed to close the distance. I'm pretty sure Joe also said that Rampage probably wouldn't throw kicks for fear of being put on his back. Joe does a very good job of using his analytical skills to breakdown a fighter and help casual fans understand what's going on and he does a great job. Joe also finds ways to compliment fighters games, by him saying Rampage knows wrestling and BJJ very well cause he uses them defensively to not get taken down and avoiding the submission. I also seem to recall him saying that rampage is a very powerful kicker when he wants to throw them. Anyways i think there was nothing wrong with what Rogan said and he did a great job, Keep up the great Commentary Joe!

He waits 5 rounds for a KO that never comes, loses and then swears he will come back stronger and return as a well rounded mixed martial artist that will harness his kicks and wrestling.


Not every fighter has to be GSP. A few of the things Rampage said about Rogan's commentary style have been brought up numerous times on this board, and usually agreed with. Whether it be the occasional biased commentary, or the calling for leg kicks.

Clearly he's just doing his job, and he's a fan too so he shouldn't get so much shit for it, but It shouldn't be so foreign to understand a toned down version of where Rampage is coming from.

Whether or not YOU believe one of the best light heavy weights of all time needs to "stop being a boxer and fight as a mixed martial artist" and begin mixing it up by sprinkling in takedowns or kicks shouldn't really matter if he's still winning, and being one of the most dangerous 205'ers out there. In the end it's his own style.

It's fair for Rogan and fans to critique him, but lets not act like he didn't just fight for the belt and is on some huge skid of losses because he's so one-dimensional. That "one-dimensional" style would still give many top 205'ers the fits, whether or not they know how to train for him.

As far as being boring, can't see I agree completely as I'd rather watch a Rampage over a long list of other fighters, but that's subjective anyway.

I guess putting a "rock bottom amount of effort into his fights" would include dropping a million on a training camp; unless you're referring being stumped by a guy like Jon Jones who has a massive reach advantage on him.
