And it's not really a surprise that Gus (205) is stronger than a welterweight. And Rashad is most definitely capable of doing what Davis did against Gus.

Nope, but it may surprise some that he is stronger than Jones. The Phil Davis fight was over 2,5 years ago, and Gus has only been training MMA for 6 years so on over 2,5 years he has improved immensely, especially on his ground game, when he started to train with Phil Davis after his loss. If Shogun had no chance to beat Gus I can't see how either Rashad or Machida would beat him (I'm a Machida fan). The only two persons i see, stand a chance against Gus is Hendo and Jones.
