Jackson says he wanted a banger for his next outing so badly that he was even willing to step up and fight in the UFC heavyweight division, a prospect that is certain to interest fans.

“I would have fought somebody coming off a loss to make the fight more exciting, I was even willing to fight at heavyweight, someone who is going to bang. At the end of the day, me, I really don’t acre if I win or lose, my main thing is a good fight,” he says.

Rampage is going to make a statement in his next fight. Lyoto is one of my favorite fighters out there, but I don't see him winning this one. Rampage by KO.

Wouldn't most of us if we had to fight Machida?

Rampage is my all time favorite but I have to say, I agree. When a guy starts talking like that, it's over.

Rampage vs CroCop at Hw would be a cool fight and suitable for both guys at this point of their careers.

If Machida loses, what are the chances he drops to MW and A. Silva moves up to LHW (assuming he beats Belfort).

Seems pretty logical.

ZugZug - If Rampage learns from Machida vs Shogun 2 he'll come forward and not play Machida's game. If he does, Rampage by KO.


Learns what? That 5 rounds worth of leg kicks will set the guy up to not be ready to defend your punches? Coming forward, without being able to take Machida's base out (leg kicks) is EXACTLY how Lyoto KTFO's people.

The only way Rampage wins this, is the formerly undefeated fighter is now damaged goods mentally. Pretty much the worst style match they could make for quentin IMO.

 People still want to watch Cro Cop fight?  I have zero interest.

I actually agree with Bumbaclot. Before Shogun did it I thought for sure that a motivated Rampage would be the one to finally solve the Machida 'puzzle.'

But with Rampage the way he is now I see Machida by unanimous decision.

lol. If you think Shogun won because he "came forward"... I have a bridge to sell you.
Thiago Silva "came forward"........ Shogun didn't.....but made it look like he would = trap set.
Rampage has no such trap in his arsenal.
Machida by decision or TKO..

 
Actually Shogun did come forward.  But he came in low and kept a high guard.  Thiago stood straight up and didn't keep a high guard.

Shogun's peekaboo defense completely nullified the left straight.  It hit nothing but forearms in the first fight.  Shogun figured this out and just went for broke in the 2nd fight.  used a high guard to get in close-mid range... and start throwing hooks.  Machida's left straight is the 1 strike he has that has any devastating effect and it needed to be utilized in the long range game.


If Quinton can bushrush forward with his crazy monkey high guard, he could very well KO Machida with a hook on the inside.  Machida's straight backward with chin high up in the air defense is tailor-made for someone that can chase it down.


What quinton needs to do is rewatch his first fight with Liddell.  Where he just pressed forward bobbing and weaving with a high guard and threw over hands all over the place and destroyed Liddell.  He can do the same to Machida.
  


The leg kicks played a HUGE role in that though. Something rampage doesnt do anymore.

blank - I think the judges stole his soul in the forrest fight. He won and they made him lose. He truly doesn't give a fuck (see the rashad fight round 3) and, possibly rightfully so.



This too

He won? Been a long time, but I remember there being two clear rounds (one for rampage and one for Forrest) and the others were pretty close. Folks who cry robbery on that one tend to just be Rampage fans, though I could watch it again, I remember watching it, and felt it was so close, and would probably go to Forrest, it did, but was close enough to have gone either way.

Bumbaclot -  I can totally see Quinton knocking Machida TFO with one of his trademark leaping hooks as Machida is pulling away with his chin sticking out there.





<img alt="" src="http://i583.photobucket.com/albums/ss279/ScubaSteveX327/quinton-jackson_chuck-liddell.gif" />

But can you see Machida throwing a left hook to the body and not bringing his hand back to cover his chin?

 watch the 2nd fight.  no legkicks.  bum rush from the bell with high guard.



Which, he was able to do because If there was ANYTHING, in the world Machida was on the lookout for, it was kicks, the first fight set up how the second fight went. He did throw a few leg kicks to "sell" that was his intent, but it was obvious he was going to punch, and Machida, who is a great counter puncher was loathe to set his feet to do so, given the beating from the first fight I dont blame him.
