Rampage: Bellator Gets It, UFC Didn’t

“I’m very excited to be a part of this family. You have no idea. This is something I’ve been dreaming about and waiting for years. I’ve been fighting for 12 years. I have a promoter that ‘gets it.’ He’s like one of the fighters. We put our life on the line and we entertain the fans. Sometimes, in the past with promoters, I just felt like I wasn’t appreciated. But, you guys get it. I’ve always wanted to be a pro wrestler. That’s why I got started in this, that’s why I started wrestling in high school. That’s why I used to fight the way I used to fight when I was younger, I used to slam people, power bombs and stuff like that. My dream has come true. I get to go to TNA and do some pro wrestling. I felt I could do this, be in front of cameras and not be shy. Like the “A-Team” movie, I want to be an action guy, I want to be a big kid and you guys are making my dreams come true. It makes me feel like all the hard work and all the things I did to my body in the past is all paying off now. I lost a lot of love for MMA when I was in the UFC. Honestly they just killed it, they drained it, but this new deal got me so excited and instantly brought the love back. It’s hard to explain the way I feel now. I’m happy to be a part of the team.”

    Love it Rampage! This is all about doing what makes you happy, yeu! UFC honestly is draining.. took my loveee away, a ppv 2-3 times a month gosh.. Spoiled my dream to be a fighter. But yea! Bellator is where it’s at, it’s about the fighter’s not the business. Just like BOXING! Nobody know’s the names of the “Promotion” Just the boxer’s.

      …the thing is, nobody whines and bitches abt the UFC when they are winning. As soon as they start stacking up losses they either jump ship or get cut, THEN all of the complaining starts. when a top fighter whose actually winning complains and leaves then it can be taken more seriously.
