Honestly, I have nothing on which to base this opinion, but I don't think Rashad wanted to win this fight. I don't think he wants to drop to 185, and I certainly don't think he wants to fight Anderson. Going in, I figured Nog had the technical striking advantage, but I also figured Rashad was much quicker and probably hit harder. I thought the only way Nog won this one was by KO. For whatever reason, Rashad just didn't show up.

I figured Rashad could take him down a lot. Nog is he better boxer. Rashad boxed with him and lost.

I'm pretty sure Rashad likes bouncing and dancing more than he likes fighting. He likes to 'feel' cool in his body rather than do what it takes to win. Christ that was awful.

I was just watching a Joe Rogan podcast with Barnett, and Barnett was saying how awful Rashad's timing is. At least clinch with Nog and spam some takedowns?? I don't know.

I wonder what's next for Rashad. Glad to see Lil Nog get another win despite it being an ugly win.

Jon Jones took Rashad Evans' soul, shocking to see Rashad look pretty bad against Lil Nog who most people thought Rashad would walk over.

I think seeing his team mate losing in that fashion may have played a role as well. It's a team spirit thing. Kinda like in basketball when one person is on fire than another, and pretty soon the entire squad is scoring points. Even though Rashad is a professional he's highly emotional. I'd be bummed if my team mate just got KOed before my fight. I'd be pissed too, probably would effect my game slightly.

What happened to Mike Van Arsdale...

He left that team long ago, rumour was that he was driven out by some of the fighters like Guillard.. too much egos in that camp.

I was thinking that Rashad would take this one easily, but it was pretty damn boring fight, not much effort on Rashad's side.

Remember hearing about it, but never heard the reason behind it. I don't think it's a coincidence that they're having a less than stellar track record with the exception of Vitor.

I think it's suffice to say everyones' world collapsed last night with all the favorites losing...badly!

Dear Mr. Son Of Bch (aka Big Foot) nice comeback win. You will soon get your bobble head knocked off by JDS, Cain, Barnett, DC again, and finally in a rematch against Overeem.

Now the idea of Evans VS Silva sounds like BS. Rashad would simply stand with him and got destroyed. It annoys me when a fighter doesn't use his strengh to win... Henderson, Rashad...
