I was thinking about Rashad's strategy might be for this fight. I wouldn't be surprised to see Rashad throw a lot of leg kicks to try and chop Jones down. It hasn't been done yet and is probably worth a shot.

Also, did they ever make a primetime episode 3?

There is an episode 3 mate. I just watched it today. Keep an eye out on youtube and it should pop up somewhere.

I think more or less the point of incline in Rashads career towards this fight was when he moved to Blackzillians, not when he lost to Madhida.

After his Machida loss, Rashad was pretty much going the way of GSP abandoning is quick, explosive stand-up and wrestling his way to a victory. However, after his transition to his new camp, I think it's safe to say that we have seen a Rashad 2.0. He is much more of a complete fighter, he uses his speed more effectively, his defense is better, and he is stronger.

While I don't think Rashad will win, I do think he will expose Jon Jones's weaknesses to the rest of the LHW division, the same way Shogun exposed Machida. Only after then will we be able to see how good Jon Jones really is and what he's really made of.

Rashad has several things going for him.

3.) The obvious history
2.) Pent up anger and blind rage. Sometimes it nullifies good judgement and can be detrimental, other times it can give one ---->
1.) Confidence and he aint scared AT ALL. He wants to hurt JBJ...badly.
*Notice the look of disgust when he sees JBJ weighing in...lolz! I know that look.

This fight will be finished one way or another. Get ready folks for round two down the road cuz this fight won't settle anything...too much bad blood.

*Note* Forgot Makdessi and Njokuani were on this card. Should be bad ass!

More than several more hours, and then it's over. I've yet to see the weigh ins, but will check it out now.

Get ready to say goodbye to the Jon Jones era.

Jones is going to embarrass Evans. Rashad is a punk.

I'm expecting this...




Followed by this...




Then this...






Time can't pass quick enough. I'm so pumped for this card!

Jones will dismantle Rashad IMO, but if somehow Rashad wins Hendo will drop him.
