    I’m with Keith. That is a big miss by Rampage which leads me to believe that something isn’t right with him or his camp.

    I am with Keith on this one. Rampage has not looked like a killer for a long time. I am hoping being in Japan brings the best out of him but I think I’m holding my breath. Bader by decision. Also picking Edgar, Shields, Hunt ;) Okami, Hioki, and Pettis.

  9. Chase Degenhardt says:

    Bader has never been KOed.. and you guys think an out of shape Rampage is going to be the one to do it???

    I might have gone with Rampage by decision before seeing he missed weight.. now, Bader by decision.

    Good call Keith.

    Rampage cares enough to be convincing in an interview, but not enough to train his heart out.
