Rashad is a former champion and a well proven fighter. I do think he has a legitimate chance of beating Anderson Silva. That being said, if the fight happens, I think Anderson's timing and quickness will eventually shut Rashad down and I think Anderson will finish, even if Rashad employs the same gameplan he did against Rampage. But my point is that there is nothing wrong with having the confidence to beat the best in the world, especially when you're not the best match-up for him.

That's not the problem,

it's the fact he says "I can beat Anderson but I won't cut
the weight to win the title"

you know, a fighters ultimate goal......... if it's that easy then do it. He had nothing for Bones, he's not taking the LHW strap.
