    He may submit Page, but KO him? Not gonna happen, unless he catches him with some powerfull knees to the chin, prime Wandy style. Glover should be carefull that he will not be the one with the lights out, because he has a lot more to lose than Pge, since that is his last fight.

  • Brasil

    What a cold shower would it be if Rampage won this fight….hope not…the LHW division needs another contender.

  • highkick12

    If these guys stand up and go at it I dont care who wins. Rampage has so much trouble finding guys that will stand up with him. Thats why his fight with Wanderlei was so good.

  • David Saucier

    Anyone can get KO’d its all about getting that button hit.

  • JoeFaceHood

    But when that button is hidden inside a cement block, it makes it much more difficult to hit. Kinda like the G-Spot on a thick girl…..gotta get beneath those layers to hit it.

  • TheRealDeal

    A fitting way to end Big Mouth Jackson’s career, face down on the canvas, out cold. Suits him well. Make it happen Glover…..

  • purinho

    I am perfectly aware that anyone can ger KO’d, no need to tell me that, thats all I gonna say, JoeFaceHood did a great job below….

  • IGMBurninPiff

    that cement block has been chipped away at over the years. you never retire with the same chin you started with. not saying Glover will K.O Rampage but I think it’s 100% possible, he seems to hit pretty hard and I think he will stand and trade with Rampage. I don’t think Rampage strikes fear into many people like he used to.

    Glover is getting knocked the **** out.. he’s brave and i love his attitude.. but i don’t care how great he thinks his striking is. If he stands and bangs with Rampage, he’s getting knocked the **** out… period! There’s a reason all these punks coming out with all these L-A-P gameplans to put Page on his back… Its cause they looking to be awake and still know where the **** they’re at after the fight! Sure Page had some so-so fights… but its like everybody forgot who Rampage really is and what he has done. All B.S. aside Rampage is still the Nr.3 or 4 LHW of the world and any doubts about that are likely to end in a sleepfest!

    Jones stood with him for a large part of their fight and absolutely owned him. This stuff about not being able to find guys who stand with him is just a case of Rampage whining every time he gets out grappled. Hell, Forrest stood with him and he hasn’t stopped whining about that fight to this day.

  • godsofwararise

    Yeah, all Jones did in their fight was LnP and Rampage tapped after falling asleep from sheer boredom.

  • predator

    Seriously number 3 or 4 in the world….in what??? Surely not in mma, Rashard laid down the game plan to beat him, Bader followed it, if someone shows a huge hole in your game and you dont fix it, then you deserve to lose, if he is number 3 or 4 in the world where do the likes of shogun, dan henderson, machida, rashard, sit in that division, not 2 mention he just lost to Bader who has to leap frog jackson becasue apart from the vintage rampage slam bader was never really in any danger….and yes Machida does have a lose 2 page but not in my books.

  • Evan Holober

    Jones, Henderson, Evans, Rua, Machida, Gustaffson…

    Nah, definitely not top three or four anymore. Maybe after this fight.

  • KeithFarrell

    #3 or #4 LHW? A guy who was just dominated by Bader? I guess that puts Bader at #2 even tho he was just put cold by Machida.

    The last time Jackson looked great was against Jones but before that it was a long ass time.. he isn’t Rampage anymore he is Quinton

  • jdnextchamp

    Who is Glover Texeira?

  • IGMBurninPiff

    #3 or #4?! If they booked him in Boxing matches vs LHW UFC opponents he wouldn’t even be number 3 or 4. like I said before I don’t want to say Glover WILL K.O Rampage but I think I’ll say its more likely then Rampage K.O’n Glover
