Chuck had a wrestling background too but he wanted to stand and bang. Jose Aldo is supposed to be very gifted at BJJ but we don't really see him pulling guard and looking to submit everyone now do we. While I agree Rampage ought to diversify his attack a little more, if no reason other than to set up his powerful strikes (hooks), it isn't like he's the only one who hones in on one strength and abandons others.
I will say while he shouldn't get to pick fights and it can't be helped that he (semi-)recently fought two wrestlers in Rashad and Jones because of their and his respective positions in the division they didn't have to pair him with Bader and Hamill necessarily. While I think the Bader thing was timing and something he should get over, he did get Machida in there as well. I'd say give him the rematch with Shogun or at worst with Griffin. If he wins see about doing the one you passed on or a match with someone like Gustafson (forgive me I know I definitely botched that one).
