I WAS RIGHT
at ufc 92: the ultimate 2008, rampage stayed true to his word that he would not lose for a third time to wanderlei silva. rampage only needed 1 of the 3 rounds of the fight to take care of business. with a strong hook from a heavy left hand rampage connected with siva’s face and sent him to the canvas where he remained unconscious for the following few minutes. during the post fight interview jackson proclaimed ‘rampage is back’. he said he is ready to fight for the title he lost to forrest griffin in mid 08 but will take whatever fight the ufc gives him.
the main event between forrest griffin and rashad evans ended in the third round of a scheduled five round title fight. there is a new light heavy weight champion in the ufc and his name is rashad evans. the first round was a feeler round for both fighters and was hard to call. the second round was when forrest took control and won the round pretty easily in my book. the fighters came out in the third round and evans took control immediately by bring griffin to the ground. after a series of elbows and hammer fists the fight was stopped by the referee. forrest was done about 7 or 8 punches before the fight was called.
also frank mir knocked out antonio minotauro nogueira.
with the wins by both rashad evans and rampage jackson (both of which i predicted) i figure the two of them will be fighting for the title pretty soon, probably like april… i say rampage wins that too.
