Rampage.

And Rashad is a much better, much better wrestler than Rampage. I don't think Rashad would beat Machida but I certainly think he could he get him down if he tried. Rashad is one of the best wrestlers in MMA and he's more than capable of getting Anderson down due to his quickness and technique.

I agree here... Anderson is old as dirt in MMA years, plus he isn't on TRT like so many other older fighters. He's been fighting in some sort of Martial Arts since he was 7 years old...

True, but that was more because Lyoto, nor anyone, was not expecting that from Rampage. I still think that Rashad, even in a rematch, would not get Lyoto down.

Come on rashad, dont run away out of the LH division after such a shitty scared performance.
And now the guy he wants to fight, is just as dexterous as JJ, and a better overall fighter. He would just do the same thing to you rashed, keep you on the outside and make you look like your not even trying.

The ONLY guy beating AS or JJ is the one and only Chael P. Sonnen. That because he's the only fighter that seems to know how to close distance properly and get in a guys face right from the start.

Anderson only has a 77 inch reach and Anderson isn't even in the same universe with Bones as far as wrestling goes, better striker but that doesn't mean anything unless you can stop the takedown. Anderson takes the first round to gauge his opponent's timing and movement, guys like Chael and Rashad wouldn't let him do that because they'd be in his face trying to put him on the mat.

Chael would get murdered by Bones, his grinding style only works against non wrestlers. Against wrestlers he relies on his standup, and on the feet Bones will kill him with reach and technique.

I think Rashad vs. Silva would be a intresting fight, but I really don't think that Dana is going to let him walk directly into a fight with the champ having never competed in the division before. If it were a one fight thing I could see Rashad being more reckless than if it effected his standing in a division. If that were the case I think it could end up being a better fight.

I can't stand Chael, but what about Okami? That being said Jones is just to big and long for anyone at LHW right now.
