Rashad will be a great commentator or even media guy for FOX when he decides to retire, its always entertaining listening him dissect a fight, and giving his opinion on it.

Can't wait for this fight, still picking JBJ, but I think Rashad will give him his toughest test.

Rashad looks to be genuinely confident for this fight. He knows that he can't stand and think infront of JBJ, he needs to let it go and fight. The game is always 90 percent half mental.

...I'm not into posting links but check out Chuck Liddell's take on the Jones/Evans fight on MMAweekly.com. Interesting but I don't agree with his analysis. Rashad was with Greg Jackson for how long? Who's gonna be in JJ's corner come fight time? I'm sure Greg knows all of Rashad's weaknesses and will put together plan A & plan B gameplans for Bones. Jones is a 6 to 1 favorite for a multitude of reasons. I honestly think the biggest problem for Rashad is getting past that incredible reach that possesses serious strikes...

That's the biggest mistake Rampage made and that's what cost him. Otherwise Rampage's takedown defence was excellent throughout.

That's what Rashad has to do in the stand up, imitate Tyson and then let his natural grappling gifts fall into place.
Since I'm rooting for Rashad I'm a bit worried that his chances of winning are based on him doing the impossible.

Rashad might be able to get in and out a few times but he won't have much success staying in there. Never mind pulling off a Tyson- like onslaught. Jones will keep him at bay at all cost even if it means circling the octagon for 5 mins with his hands in Rashads face throwing an occasional kick to the knee.

In the event Rashad does get close Jones will tie him up and go for take downs all day.(could be a good thing for Rashad if he can reverse)

But for Rashad to win in my opinion he must go for takedowns NON STOP. He must force Jones to win the fight off his back as in Sonnen/Silva. Any other scenario Jones will win.

While I like Rashad I'm realistic

I see your point. However, I think once they do get into clinch range, Rashad will probably be banking on Jones tying him up. Van Arsdale indicated that that were their main area of concern, Jones' clinch. If Rashad can get in on Jones then he'll be close enough to explode with that takedown, he doesn't have to stay there, he only needs to frustrate Jones will the pressure, which can be done as the Machida fight hinted at. Jones can wave his hands in Rashad's face all day, but Rashad's more athletic than the competition Jones' has faced and will look to mix it up. Keep Jones thinking about the close range stand up, when Jones tries to clinch, WHAM, double leg. That's the scenario I can see him using. Question is, can Jones stop him from taking him down? I have a feeling that if Rashad is able to take him down in the later rounds, Jones will more than likely stay down. We'll see though. Anything is possible in this fight.
