Rampage Knows Teixeira Plans On Taking Him Down | UFC NEWS

“I could get excited about this type of fight, but it has been brought to my attention from my management and stuff that — and they check stuff out — that it shows Glover is really doing a lot of work on planning to take me down and holding me against the cage … stuff like that,” he claimed. “He’s going to pretend to stand up to just take me down, which is okay, I’m not surprised. I don’t know what’s going through his head… I just think that he’s a great ground fighter, so if he really wants to win this fight, why then trade with me at my strong point?” Jackson continued. “Why not get me at my weakest point, which is on the ground? That’s probably what he’s thinking, but he’s got a new thing coming because I’ve trained to take this fight anywhere. If he takes me down I’m getting right back up. I really feel like he’s going to have a hard time taking me down.”

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Rampage Jackson, tells the panel on FUEL TV’s “UFC Tonight” that he has intelligence that points to a game-plan by his upcoming opponent that includes an aggressive ground assault.

Does Rampage have a spy watching over Glover?

    Actually he’s planning some spinning elbows and oblique kicks waampage.

  2. Big Daddy says:

    Why doesn’t someone tell him it’s mixed martial arts? It’s the nature of the sport. Did he actually think he was going to go in the ufc and just have fist fights?

    i cant wait for this fight. you fools are all pussies who talk shit about rampage because dana white says to. he’s the last of a dying breed of REAL FIGHTERS who come to FIGHT. not strategize and take it to a decision. you’d all be swinging from his dick like tarzan if you bumped into him in public. faggots.

      I’ve never heard Dana tell anybody to talk or think bad about Page… He needs to stop complaining and fight.. The sport is passing him by.. its not boxing… He is a wrestler so he shouldn’t be so easy to takedown… He has a excuse for everything.. Real fighters FIGHT they don’t put up garbage performances over n over and then make 100 excuses and blame Dana and the UFC cuz ur garbage

    • Sasquatch says:

      Sounds like you’ve had some practice swinging bro.

    Forget this “mixed martial arts” crap. Holding people down or on the cage without the intention of finishing the fight, but to simply when on scorecards is gay, and that’s what Rampage is talking about. He doesn’t have problems with people fighting to win, but it’s gay moves like humping other men for the sake of avoiding damage to win. Those kicks to the knees should be illegal.

    Rampage beat dan h. That’s pretty much his only impressive win in the UFC. Chuck was at the end of his career,Lost to forrest who’s average,silva matt Keith way past there prime so he beat fighters ranked 9-15th and got worked by rashad bader and jones. Time to hang up the gloves rampage

    • Dee says:

      Correction he beat Chuck twice, and he beat him while he was at the pinnacle of his career. He is the reason for everyone knocking Chuck out. It was after his knock out punch that Chuck’s jaw wasn’t able to sustain hard punches anymore. Also the only real loss Rampage suffered in the UFC was to Jon Jones.

    Stfu already!! I swear rampage is the biggest baby in mma

  7. Jujitsu Player says:

    Same old Rampage being a bitch again….doesn’t matter where the fight goes Glover is going to BATTER you.

  8. Nicain says:

    Anyone else tired of watching Rampage lose?

  9. Time To Wrestle says:

    Rampage doesn’t like all the work it takes to be the best in mma anymore. He is one of the old farts from Pride that are just about done. They are all gatekeepers. The best still around is Andy, but that dude is f1ckin’ old and he’ll get beat up soon if he doesn’t quit. Then there is Hendo, He’s amazing but who really thinks he will be champion again?? Overeem is the only one that could possibly be a champion.
    One thing I have to give to Rampage is that he didn’t run away from Glover like that scared bitch Rua did. Don’t get me started on that Karate kid Machida either. LMAO..

    old dont mean shit when youve taken nearly no damage over your entire career. Silva has been stopped twice in his entire career and if you know anything about MMA the move was a fucking kamikaze flying scissor heel hook which has probably been successfully pulled off zero times other then that. silva just signed a 10 fight deal with the UFC, not sure your “old and is gonna get beat up” statement doesnt hold water

    • Time To Wrestle says:

      Andy is old dude and he WILL get beat up REAL soon if he doesn’t quit. His time is just about up. He wants to make moola and that’s why he is more than happy to fight smaller guys like GSP. He’s a scared bitch too. When he has the opportunity to make the biggest purse of his life and the fight EVERYBODY wants to see against Jones, what is his answer; “Nope”? Yep, she IS a scared bitch!
