Emelianenko vs. Jackson
Fedor Emelianenko, TKO, R2
There was once a time, that I really enjoyed a Rampage fight. There was also once a time, that Rampage Jackson was on ******* and punched I believe Johnny Knoxville in the gut. Annnd there was also a time when Rampage was exciting to watch. I believe Rampage is shot as a fighter (you can agree to disagree here)..... Definitely shot at being a dominant fighter. (You hafta agree here tho.) And i know. You could make a case for Fedor being shot as well. He did get KO'd by Matt Mitrione right after the double knockdown. Sooooo idk what I'm really basing my pick on. I think Rampage tries to wrestle. Wrestle. Wrestle in R1 cos he don't wanna stand and trade shots with Fedor. And the constant wrestling gases Rampage until he's so vulnerable that Fedor cracks him clean and puts him out cold. Very tail end of R1-R2.

Josh Barnett's Bellator Debut

Should we have Josh Barnett in his Bellator Debut against Jack Swagger or Jake Hager or Ronny Markes? Which ones would be better?

Both can still punch hard, but Rampage is more durable.

This card is the pefect exemple of why Bellator struggle that much. 
-typical Bellator main event, 2 old heavyweight slugging for 2 minutes, if no KO theres going to gas out and dry hump.
-A lot of boring fighter that would win a decision without tring to get the finish.
-Some completely inegal fight that only serve to increas the finish rate of the card,  even if that mean fighter gonna be severly hurt.

I heard that Rampage was very difficult to coach, he seems to have regressed at wolfs lair academy. He was better with more honest established MMA coaches like Colin Oyama and Antonio McKee. I am all for him being at heavy weight, but I think his performances would be better if he could stabilize his weight at 240 Lbs. or less as opposed to coming in at the 265 Lb. limit.

Neither Outlaw or Anzai are bums and that's clear if you look at their records. Plus Outlaw is a replacement for Bendo.
