    More like "Bellator is thrilled to tell Rampage shut up and fight bitch"

    This really doesn't matter. Rampage's best years are long gone. All this fighting over him seems pointless.

    Lol, I thought he said he'd sooner retire than go back to Bellator.

    Wouldn't mind seeing him pound Tito out behind the barn.

    I think Wanderlei has a little more in his tank than people expect.

    I know it was almost 3 years ago now, but no one expected him to beat Brian Stann.

    I hope he does. Wandy is a legend.
    I was thinking Rampage's chin has held up better.

    That appears certain.

    McGeary greases worse than GSP and Akiyama.

    Viacom and Coker are hunting for ratings more than anything else and there are substantial Rampage bouts that will probably do some impressive numbers.

    My knee-jerk "what would Coker do?" is that they fly Rampage in for the Houston show on Friday, have him cageside for the Kimbo fight and if/when Kimbo wins, they interview Rampage and make that their next marquee fight that's ultra low risk for Rampage. I know it seems silly since Kimbo is a total freakshow gimmick and nowhere near Rampage's level, but it's a win-win for Bellator, since it's a total layup for Rampage, who won't be worried/complaining about takedowns or leg kicks and they'll be getting the most out of Kimbo's name since he's got a severely limited shelf-life.

    From there, after you do the freakshow ratings fight, Rampage vs. Tito, Wand IV, Bonnar, Mo II or even Fedor are all respectable fights that should do reliable, good business and they could always throw him in there with a real LHWs like Davis, McGreary or Newton.

    One thing to keep an eye out for will be his weight and whether he really wants to make the cut down to 205 still, as there is always that "motivated Rampage" talk.

    ooooooh.
    I change my mind.
    I want Wand vs Tito! That'll be a great way to put Tito out to pasture, and if by the grace of gawd that Tito wins, then his "good friend" Rampage will get to do it.

    Liam Neeson will make 3 Taken movies and then 4 other movies just like Taken, but won't do A-Team 2 because he says he doesn't like doing sequeals.

    Ridiculous. Idiotic really, how can you pass up the chance at completing the A-Team story?

    Rampage Jackson reacts to Bellator MMA return, still open to knocking out Kimbo Slice

    --- Post Added -- Feb 22, 2016, ---
    There we go. I cant see Bellator not booking Rampage vs Kimbo next if Rampage is already talking about it. Rampage will hurt Kimbo bad and look good doing it. Setting him up for a title shot with McGeary or whoever holds the belt at that point. Rampage King Mo is always a marketable rematch.
