With the UFC's Ultimate Finale airing tonight, I couldn't help but reflect on the season. It was better than I had anticipated, but with one exception: The trash talking between Rampage and Rashad was just horrible! For example, here's an exchange between the two from the last episode:
Rampage: "I want you confident so I can serve your ass."
Rashad: "You will never serve me!"
Rampage: I'll serve your ass."
Rashad:You'll never serve me."
Rampage: "Man, I will serve you!"
Rashad: "Dude, you will never serve me."
Rampage: "I'll serve your ass. I will serve your ass."
I was shocked and appalled to find that fighters who can talk such a great game in interviews had to resort to repeating the same thing over and over and over again in person. It got to the point that I wanted to fast forward past each run-in they had.
So, in an effort to purge my mind of those senseless spewings, I give you an all-time top ten in the art of talking smack. Any one of these guys would at least leave Rashad or Rampage speechless, and at most have them running away in tears.
