Rampage stated to MMAWeekly.com that in this stage of his life, a move to heavyweight might be smarter and easy to accomplish:
“I finally got the love back and I’m thinking about going to heavyweight because I’m older now. I think heavyweight would be a good move because I like the big guys. I think I’d be faster than them. I don’t mind trying to knock out some big guys.”
This could be good for Rampage who has spent a career fighting similarly sized men and as of late, being at a speed disadvantage. Perhaps in a heavier division, speed will be on his side along with power, technique, and experience over anyone in Bellator’s heavyweight division.
Making a healthy change to heavyweight while maintaining a peak physical aptitude shouldn’t be a problem as Jackson walks around at close to 230lbs outside of a training camp.
