  1. ramv says:

    Where? That’s dumb. You don’t leave the UFC unless they cut you. Don’t do it, Rampage, stay as long as you can.

  2. Steven says:

    Shogun vs Rampage 2

  3. m says:

    im sure he could make serious cake outside the ufc. he wouldn’t say something like that if he wasn’t already offered more money elsewhere.

  4. Jason N says:

    Makes sense. He can’t hang with the TOP UFC guys anymore anyways. Might as well get paid as much to beat up lesser opponents.

    • True! If he cant BEAT anyone in the UFC whats he gonna do for a living? He just needs to get focused and in shape again. He’s a lonsghot since his “style” is a thing of the past!

  5. K2 says:

    I doubt any other organization going right now could offer him the $$$ that the UFC does.

  6. James Troy says:

    no hate here. rampage has been fighting for a long ass time and knows whats best for him. if he isnt happy in the ufc and isnt perfoming well because of it then i say go try somethng else. ill be a fan no matter what.
    so is it gona be boxing or some japanese MMA org….

  7. Dog chapman says:

    James tony vs jackson bruddah

  8. C says:

    Just throwing this out there he could be doing boxing next people have always said he’s more well suited for it. Plus, he could be like a sideshow attraction and get paid dough for it.

  9. WTF says:

    Seeya Ramp! Where u gonna fight now? There are plenty of fighters that want an opportunity to fight in the UFC and he wants to throw it away. Hell, give his spot to Big Timmy. The guy is begging for a chance back in the big league.

  10. T.Daddy says:

    I’m a big Rampage fan that said he looked like a bum his last couple fights… I can see if he was still smashing guys but u havnt had a dominate performance ina long time

    • sid says:

      bums fights r better to watch

    • JAT says:

      actually i thought he was in great shape for the bones fight, probably the best shape hes ever been in. He just cant compete with the upper class mma stars anymore.Boxing will be good for rampage because that’s all he really is anymore, its all he like to do. he will make some pretty good money doing it too. I hope to see boxing be big again someday (probably will never happen)

      • C says:

        I think he overtrained for his last couple of fights and when it came down to it he was just too tired to go.

  11. G Bud says:

    The guy could sell saitama twice over by himself! Makes sense, if he’s only gettin $250,000 when he’s the biggest draw on the card at 144, if he went independent over there he could earn at least 4 times that amount. Fuck the haters Rampage, they’re mostly post-pride fanboys who’ll jump on the next champs dick. RGS

    • bigtrav says:

      You may have a point with him to get more money in japan. the issue maybe will they actually be able to pay him. seems like more than a few fighters are still owed money by organizations in japan.

  12. momo says:

    wow biggest cry baby ever!!!!! (u fight cheap) wtf was that not baders fault he came in fat .

  13. Thom says:

    What he means is that he’s gonna go pro boxing.

  14. RCS says:

    It’s a money play he wants more money. . . lets see how it pans out.

  15. BobbyLemons says:

    I think the UFC should forget putting Rampage in any sort of title picture and instead focus on letting him have exciting fights. And when I say that I mean they should top putting him against top notch wrestlers (as they have in 4 of his last 5 fights).

    Of course you have to go through the wrestlers if you’re gonna be a champion, but his champion days are over, put him against some people he can have a good stand-up war with, and let him retire with a few exciting fights…

  16. no one anyone else could pay what the ufc could pay him. He is getting older and everyone around him is advancing and opening up to broader styles, Rampage simply punches and can wrestle. I don’t think he could go to Strikeforce or Pride FC or K1 and do any better than he is now

    • Woman Beater says:

      Boxing can certainly pay more than UFC. Be it that Rampage is one the 39 fighters that have PPV buy contract, so he is close to a million a fight without a doubt. (not the 250,000$ they say he makes)

    • Texas says:

      No one can fight in Pride anymore… UFC bought em out back in 2007.

  17. hahahanninen says:

    Oh man I would love to see Rampage fight King Mo or whatever the fuck his name is, the 205 strikeforce champ who hasn’t had any competition…i would much rather see that fight and see Rampage end his career gracefully and not being taken out by top LightHeavies in the UFC.

  18. GetOffAndersonsNuts says:

    Rampage isnt on Shoguns level… that would be a stupid fight. Quintons finished… maybe u can go to bellator or some shit n knock out some nobodys but ur done with Quinton. Every fight u say ur gonna come in and knock them the fuck out… dude you havent finished anybody since 2008… SCRUB lol.

  19. Michael says:

    Rampage vs Shogun II, then when he gets beat again he can go box with Kimbo Slice!!

  20. Beaner says:

    Wouldn’t be surprised if he goes to boxing when he leaves UFC.

  21. david says:

    fuck rampage is such a diva

  22. Quittin "Waaaam-page" Jackson says:

    Boo-hoo….Joe Rogan made fun of me…now I don’t wanna play here no more….

  23. Xaninho says:

    I think he’s going to Strikeforce. They need a couple of big names, he could go for the belt there.

  24. BJC says:

    Tim Silva vs Rampage winner takes on Kimbo

  25. i wouldn’t recommend it but its his business. no one knows what’s going but him so right man do what you want to do Rampage! Just don’t burn the bridge!

  26. Yeah, I can understand where he’s coming from. I’m just glad he has a Lamborghini he canuse to wipe his tears since it really looks like he’s hurting for money: http://bit.ly/xQDkvg

    • Xaninho says:

      Damn dude got a nice house and some nice rides! I bet he got some after that ride in the Lamborghini….

  27. Steve says:

    Rampage is very much like BJ where they have so much talent but they chose not to work hard during training. Difference is that BJ has adapted to the evolution of MMA and has a BJJ game where as Rampage doesn’t.

  28. Nando says:

    I see him doing pro wrestling. If he does boxing he won’t get paid top dollar & he’ll get laid out. Sorry to generalize, but it seems like black people care waaaaayy too much about money. Look at Mayweather & every single rapper. You don’t see bill gates doing that.

    • Robert says:

      wow what a fuckin racist…. rockstars care aobut money too… cowboy cerrone stated himself that he did it for the money. Stop being a racist man. That has zero to do with race… what aobut when machida wanted to get almost a million for one of his fights or when fedor wanted to get paid millions to fight in the UFC. Exactly… has nothing to do with race man… what about all the rockstars who have giant coke parties and spend their money on these ridiculous houses…and bill gates cares so much about money he was willing to steal ideas like windows from steve jobs.

      • Nando says:

        not racist bro, check Mayweather’s twitter, everything is money. Your rebuttals are irrelevant.

        • Xaninho says:

          So just cause ONE black guy is all about the money, you’re stating all black people are? That can be qualified as racist…cracka.

  29. Mio says:

    WWE????

  30. Abraham says:

    He doesnt have it anymore, He knows when its time to hangem’ up.

  31. Abraham says:

    He doesnt have it anymore, Time to hang it up

  32. G says:

    He’s 33. It’s time for him to retire. Rarely can a guy fight past that age. They just start racking up losses. Silva, of course, is not a regular guy.

  33. Probably says:

    Will fight fir dream so he can retire where he started

    • David says:

      I would love for him to do that. Two or three fights in Japan and make his last fight on the New years eve card

  34. Tough Guy says:

    He should fight Tank Abbot in a freakshow in Japan, you know seeing as how they love him so much.

  35. bertram2323 says:

    man im a big rampage fan but these latest comments put him down a notch for sure. hes so unloyal. the ufc has made him rich as fuck and made him a celebrity, a lot more than the a team did, and he throws them under the bus. rampage most definitely seems like the type of person where its his way or no way, and he’ll turn into the biggest cry baby if he doesnt get it. i hope dana and the ufc put him in his place; because he needs it. im a big fan, but man im losin respect for this guy more and more.

    • v says:

      you’re an idiot….. he’s pretty much being forced into retirement. just like chuck and tito. every time rogan or anyone else gives a hint that they dont have it anymore, they get the boot.

      • Jujitsu Player says:

        You think Rogan pulls the strings in the ufc….you’re mental. UFC is probably forcing Rampage out because they dont think he’s committed enough, esp after the poor performance against Bader.

  36. BlueDemonica says:

    Stay Rampage, stay. Just gotta step it up a notch or two, learn a few tricks even. Fight till you get broken to the point where you can’t possibly fight anymore! Don’t give up!

  37. Life Coach says:

    Rampage is a great fighter but his style hasn’t evolved with the times. The UFC has the best fighters in the world and fighters who don’t evolve won’t be able to succeed at the top level. I think Rampage will do excellent in other organizations.

  38. KJG says:

    was a legend in the game, his time is definitely up. i dont get excited to watch a rampage fight anymore. just the way it goes.

  39. guamy says:

    i thought all those butt darts made you feel 25 again? lmao

  40. Alistair overeem says:

    rampage isnt retiring didnt you guys hear what he said , he started using testosterone and feels like hes 25

  41. jonesy says:

    he is just bitter cuz dana tell iit how it is,…no one else will give him ufc money….all talk

  42. Sencala says:

    So after Uncle Dana keeps his ass out of jail for drive a monster truck like a monster truck down a suburban street. All the money. The fame. He’s “done” with the ufc? No he’s done because he’s done WINNING in the ufc. The next Tim Silvia everybody say hello to Wahhmpage Jackson! Or maybe it was the lure of being a straight to dvd actor that was too tempting to give up. Oh wait he did do the A team movie. Anyone remember that? yeah me neither.

  43. jonsey says:

    the more i watch ronda the more and more i hate this chick ,,,fuk she is so annoying,,i hope cyborg get the fuk back here and beat her at 135 already

  44. smells like jealousy says:

    And most of these comments are what she is talking about when he says respect. You idiots call him a chump but he would woop your fucking ass when he is 60 or 70 years old! He can be entertaining, his fight record is so so right now but I respect the fact he has won championships and beaten some of the best. Do you call mike tyson or mohammed ali a chump because they lost their last few fights before they retired? Or do you call Ali, “The Greatest?” I don’t like fighters complaining or bitching either but you people take the cake.
