Rampage & Wanderlei Silva Should Retire
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Wanderlei Silva fought for the fourth time at Bellator 206, and their 15-year rivalry is now even at two wins apiece.
As a passionate MMA fan, I sincerely hope that was the last time either fighter competes inside the rules of mixed martial arts. Jackson is but a shell of himself. The once feared light heavyweight slugger is nothing more than a middle-aged man dealing with weight issues. Meanwhile, the “Axe Murderer” used to strike fear in the hearts of would-be opponents. He may be 42 years old but let’s just say he hasn’t aged too well.
I say this takeaway from a point of love. I love the sport of MMA, and I care about the integrity of sportsmanship.
Jackson and Silva have given fans some of the most memorable moments in combat sports history. I hope they ride off into the sunset following their fourth fight at Bellator 206.
