I don’t believe that Rampage is training with Golden Glory as they are located in the Netherlands. I was not impressed with Rampage’s striking. This has been his best outing since I would say his Dan Henderson fight. His striking has been off since he left Juanito. Rampage’s hands were the best ever when he fought Forrest. It’s a shame he won’t hire Juanito back or a better boxing coachHamill went for another knee tap and ate a knee. Jackson slung him off and landed an uppercut. Hamill walked away from the first round bloodied.

Rampage looked SHARP tonight. broken hand or not, I’m glad he didn’t give up any takedowns nor did he rush in. Hamill is hard dude to finish.

Was anyone else impressed with Rampage’s striking tonight? His (short) time with Golden Glory turned an already impressive puncher into something better and definitely seems to have added more to his arsenal
