    I like GSP to get him down and frustrate the shit out of Rampage. Besides for Jon Jones (...and I am not schooled in wrestling enough to which guy is better) GSP is the best wrestling we have ever seen. That said, there is no reason to believe Rampage couldn’t KO him or slam his ass as he goes for a double.

    Prime Rampage (Liddel 2) was an absolute Beast. Good gas tank, solid wrestling, and insane power. Being 2 weight classes bigger, he easily KO’s GSP.

    That was when Rampage was green and so was the sport. The sport has evolved significantly and so had Rampage. He'd stuff GSP's td's.

    GSP murders him. He was better at everything except power punching.

    Yes. I think Rampage would be too much for GSP.

    I tend to think so, whilst GSP was able to beat Bisping in the end for me he clearly struggled with his size and Rampage is larger, a better wrestler and has more power.

    I think Rampage's main weaknesses was in the clinch and GSP was never really that dangerous there, Jackson was able to shut down a prime Randleman's wrestling from range.

    Yeah , I think so, I'm a big Rampage fan so I might be biased , bu in his prime he had good boxing and great takedown defense, I think he could use his size to diffuse the wrestling and counter the jab.

    If by 'green' y´all mean mentally unprepared for the big stage/big fights [which led him to a poor gameplan/fight IQ], I agree.

    Otherwise, it´s kindah tricky to assess the evolution of Rampage´s skill set since his Fabiano Iha days in Gladiator Challenge (& KOTC by extension).

    Same. Just annoyed i suppose. In theory any fighter can beat another but theres a reason why gsp fought 170. Rampage was picking up n dumping HWs like Igor.
