Like I said, Anderson is on a different planet when compared to guys like Rashad. Rashad is an upper tier fighter for sure, but Anderson holds Jedi status. It takes Anderson a millisecond to find an opening that other humans beings simply can't see and instantly finish a fight.

If you lock Rashad in a cage with Anderson for twenty-five minutes, there's an extremely likely probability of Anderson finding his "moment" and instantly brutalising Evans without any one seeing it coming.

And Chael lost the first fight because of submission defense, Rashad's submission defense? Pretty solid from what I've seen, I can't recall him ever being in danger from a submission attempt which would be Anderson's only hope of winning because I don't think he'd keep Rashad off of him.
