This one is going to be a first-rounder.
Maybe he does it all on purpose? After all, rappers brag about getting shot for some dumb reason. Apparently it makes them real gangsters in the eyes of fans.

So... perhaps Rampage getting knocked out a lot will make him a real fighter in the eyes of fans.

I don't know. I used to like Rampage , until he started driving around in that horribly garish truck and driving it up sidewalks after he lost to Griffin.

Ever since the police had to haul his butt out of the truck at gunpoint, his career has been more about obtaining "street cred" than doing work in the octogon.

Nah. Street cred means getting caught AND beating the case.

Now I know he pleaded guilty, but hit and run and a felony police chase resulting in just 3 years probation with zero jail time is beating it.

Especially since he almost killed three people during that Hit and run.
