Rashad just happens to be next in line as "no no... this is the guy that takes Jones down". It's unfortunate for him, but he's just next in line to get schooled.

Jones is truly on a level the UFC has yet to see. Rashad is simply the latest victim.

And for the record, I like Rashad Evans.

I dont know, Jones is looking unstoppable but Rashad truly does bring a different type of fight than Jones' last three opponents. And its the type of fight that wins.

In his last two fights, Evans has impressed me. I've never been impressed by Evans, I wasn't impressed when he KO'd Liddell and I wasn't surprised when Machida tooled him, but I see a revamped fighter.

Rashad mixes it up, he's patient, he's in the best physical form yet and he seems resiliant to Jones' prefight smoke and mirrors. He's got the wrestling, he hits hard and moves well, and neutralised a very good, large grappler in Davis.

I think with the right frame of mind and right gameplan, Evans can outpoint Jones. UD would be the safest bet based on Evans' last fight but Jones is used to dominating, dont be surprised to see him unravel under pressure and give Evans a late stoppage.

Evans is a big underdog here but he knows too much about Jones and his camp for me to resist these crazy odds, and he's looked great lately.

This lad is intelligent ^


Rashad via late stoppage or some type of decision, depending on how much Jones can take. I know Rashad can take whatever Jones can dish out, not so sure the same can be said the other way around.

War Rashad.

FINALLY

It's been a long long road for Rashad. This is the beginning of a similar road for Jones.

Can't see Jones losing this. At all. He may get taken down once or twice, but I don't think Rashad can keep him there, and his striking and footwork just won't be good enough to get him in range.
