Rampage On The Tito Ortiz Fight That Was Not To Be – “Seemed like a lot of people didn’t like that fight.”

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson taking on Tito Ortiz was supposed to be the biggest fight in Bellator’s history. A fight that was going to main-event their inaugural attempt at the pay-per-view medium… then Tito did what Tito does best: he ended up injured, and unable to continue with the fight. Rampage was distraught.
… okay, it turns out that “distraught” isn’t the best adjective to use.
It just didn’t look like the fans was into that fight on social media and stuff,” Jackson said, in an interview with MMA Fighting. “It looked like, a lot of times you get like one percent of haters, but that fight had more than one percent, that had like 40 percent haters. Seemed like a lot of people didn’t like that fight. You can’t let haters stop you, but at the same time you hear it, you see it, I think the haters still would have tuned in just to see what would happen, but they were out there.”
What about you guys? Would you have liked to have seen the fight go on as planned? Or are you glad that “Rampage vs. Ortiz” never came to fruition?
