I don't know why ppl get so confident Rashad will be a threat to Anderson in any weight, after what Lyoto did to him.
I would like to see it anyway.
Lyoto has a sumo background and a wide base. Plus with the karate stance he's notoriously hard to take down. Even he was able to get back up after the LHW title holder took em down. Unfortunately it didn't last too long after.

Rashad does have a better chance against Anderson cuz he's so much taller and has lankier legs. I don't agree with Rashad losing the LHW title shot then getting an immediate shot at Anderson "just to revive his career" though.

This is a gimme fight for Rashad although it looks good on paper and on his resume. Lil Nog just has a horrendous time with wrestlers. He obviously needs to hurt Rashad and finish if he can.

Really want Nog to take this but can't see him winning. Shad by decision. Urgh.

Rashad thought he was hot shit back then on the feet just because he knocked out Liddell and he never even shot in on Machida. Lyoto showed him what's up and ever since Machida whipped that ass he's been using his wrestling.

If he fights Anderson, I expect him to try and take him down, he'd be a dumbass if he stood with him.

Mad respect for the Nog brothers but I see Rashad taking this with the same conviction he defeated Tito with.

Evans rightly a big favorite, long as he's prepared. He does tend to get rocked and Nog throws hard. Evans UD most likely.

Good points No_Mercy and LyotoLegion.
Rashad is an evolving fighter learning from his mistakes. It would be really weird if he wanted to exchange with Anderson while having a good chance to take him down.

Do you think he could sub Nog? That'd be a damn impressive start to his way back up the ladder.

Anybody can be subbed after they've been punched/kicked/slammed hard enough.

with Nog you probably need all 3.
