Now although the fight was horrible I would watch it again just because I found Rampage to be hilarious in this episode.
I would just like to add one more thing to show how big of a hypocrite Dana White is. Wasn't it Dana who said Gary Shaw was a moron for promotion his shows based on the internet sensation of "Kimbo Slice"? Well whats the UFC doing now? The whole TUF season was hyped up because of Kimbo Slice. This is a smart marketing plan because Kimbo is a bigger name than any other fighter on the show but how is this any better than EliteXC?
Let me start off by saying I am not in shock Ortiz is back in the UFC. Dana White has always been about the money and lets be honest, the name "Tito Ortiz" is a big one in the MMA world. It would seem Tito and Dana got their problems solved but I'm sure Dana still hates the face of Ortiz.
Tito will face Mark Coleman at UFC 106 on November 21st. It is hard to call this fight because Ortiz has not fought since May 2008 and it will be interesting to see how successful Ortiz's back surgery was. In order to win Tito has to use his wrestling background to take Coleman down and utilize a ground and pound game. Coleman may be 44 years old but he is no slouch in cardio and that will probably play into the fight because I see the fight going all 3 rounds.

So its Official Anderson, The Spider, Silva is going to take on Vitor Belfort in UFC 108 on January 2nd 2010. The Spider has been lacking in his last few middle weight fights, but in my opinion thats only because hes not had much motivation to fight Patrick Cote and Thales Leites. This would be an interesting matchup with both fighters being stand up guys. With Belfort’s explosive quick hands against the precision of Anderson’s stand up game, this fight has to end with some excitement. This is why I am predicting a T.K.O. victory for Anderson Silva in the 3rd round.
It is rumoured on the same card we could be seeing a number one contenders match for the winner of Silva vs Belfort. We have Dan Henderson vs Nate Marquardt. Henderson has already proved he deserves another title shot with one of the biggest knockouts in 2009 against Michael Bisping. Both these men have already lost to Silva and to be honest, I don’t see them being the middle weight champion if Silva wins his fight.
I just hope Vitor Belfort can make weight this time...
I'm not going to bad mouth Rampage for leaving the UFC because his career is right up there with the best. He was the first undisputed Pride and UFC champion after all. And his win via Power Bomb against Ricardo Arona is probably the most played MMA clip.
I would like to wish Rampage good luck with his life but I had to laugh at what he said when he quiet. "So I feel like my second career could be in jeopardy . . . so I'm done fighting." - Rampage Jackson. haha I wouldn't consider the role of B.A. Baracus in the new A-Team movie an "acting career"
I've read a couple of other people's blogs on Rampage and they go on saying it looked as if Rampage was afraid of Rashad in the show and that assumption is ridiculous. He has been in the cage with Wanderlei Silva, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Chuck Liddell, no way he can be afraid of Evans. As far as people saying Rampage seems like such a bad coach on the show, he is a bad coach. Hes horrible at coaching and I don't think any disagrees on that but hes paid to fight, not to coach.

As Canadians we love Obama but think of it like this. Imagine a school was singing and praising about George W. Bush, would we still think these songs are such good ideas? How about if you were a Jewish parent and you just learned your son's public school was singing songs about Jesus Christ and Santa Claus?
I am not saying this was such a bad thing where it needs all the attention it got, but I am simply stating schools should not do this because some families might not support President Obama (yes there are such families out there).
Don't think I don't love Obama, I'm Canadian too and we all love him up here!
