    Oh well. Guess he forgot how Japan can mess you up.

  3. ricardo says:

    Lets see , Rampage wins he gets 400k,
    20% of 400,000= 80,000
    Easiest 80,000 Bader will ever make

  4. danriverapv says:

    you could tell how stoked bader was when Rampage missed weight… i bet hes hoping Rampage underestimated him.

  5. Chartmonster says:

    Shitt is already going bad for rampage.. rampage has a lazy streak in him! Going for the underdog.. Darth Bader!

  6. cody says:

    i know this sucks i like page but come on gotta make that weight

  7. Steven says:

    1st time he’s not made weight, shut the fuck up. Baders going to sleep and when he wakes up he will be in the prelims for now on

      Rampage will never get cut for any reason. Dude has a fan base as big as anybody in MMA and he’ll fight the toughest guys in the sport.

  9. G says:

    This is actually really bad. This would encourage Bader to lose to Jackson, because the more Jackson wins, the more Bader gets. Fighters always get more if they win and especially if it’s a __-of-the-night. So, honestly, this encourages Bader to lose…!

    • krafty11 says:

      encourages Bader to lose?? nice conspiracy theory you got going there.. let me know how that works out for you.

      • spiritsplice says:

        It’s not a conspiracy theory you idiot, he is talking about possible financial motivations. Stop watching Faux News for a while, it might help your brain work a bit better.

  10. Dave says:

    Maybe Rampage wants the extra weight to help be strong and avoid takedowns, just a thought.
