But he'd also have had to make the weight cut and from what I understand, Rashad is in the 230's right now and he'd also have to go to Brazil to do the last week of cutting weight, which might have been difficult with the translation and what not. I doubt this has less to do with his brand and more to do with him actually having a shot at winning. He'd have been easy prey for Glover had he took it.
Oh I didn't know he was 230ish. I didn't think Rashad cut much at all. I thought he stayed around 210-215. Not sure how he would expect to make 185 if he is getting that fat during his time off. Maybe that is why he isn't dropping to 185.
