    What do you think?

    My opinion, if Rampage could've lifted him a bit higher, it could've been bad. He landed directly on his neck. He probably would've been KO'ed/Neck damage.

    I'm surprised he wasn't injured from the actual throw.

    Ricardo Arona would say yes.

    Same. The way he landed made me cringe.

    If you're talking about THAT throw, he should have been cut on the spot.

    Sure, that could have ended up very bad. I don't know what Bader was thinking with trying to brace with his arm though. Could have had a Shogun/Coleman 1 incident on top of a neck injury.

    That was a very dangerous move. It could have been much worse, luckily Bader didn't get injured. Seeing it again, I'm still amazed he went on to win the fight from that.

    How it didn't hurt Bader is beyond me. Similar to Fedor surviving the Randleman suplex.

    Holy shit.. Looking at that gif I forgot how brutal that was, shit looks straight out the wwe. Bader looks like he could've fucked up his neck and his arm

    Yeah.

    Right when it happened me and my friends were like "Man...Rampage looks like shit so he basically just tried to break Bader's neck with that throw".

    Coulda been bad, the way he kinda landed on his head with all the weight coming down.

    Y'all had been complaining Rampage hadn't slammed someone in years, so what does he do? He slams a guy and y'all still complain, damn.

    Brutal, though, and Bader's lucky he survived.

    I had completely forgotten about that one :eek:

    Legal or not, I'd say it's a bit irresponsible. Even in a sport where
    you repeatedly punch a grounded opponent in the face pretty regularily.

    A KO is one thing, a broken neck is another. That could've potentially
    ended the fight, and in the worst case, Bader's career.

    It was so awesome to see Rampage get a real slam in the UFC. Unfortunately he fucked up his already injured knee with that throw and couldn't do much else afterward.
