Rashad to me is more like Kosheck but with better GNP.
I'd put Koscheck ahead of Rashad. Much as I hate Kos, he actually managed to get a couple takedowns against GSP in their fights, and that's one hell of an accomplishment.
As for what Dana says, I'd estimate that 90% of what comes out of his mouth is pure BS. I'm pretty much at the point where I don't believe it until the papers are signed.
