So he is going to sit there and say Anderson isn't chomping at the bit to fight him. Yet he is the one who mentioned the possible move and can easily make it...yet he is fighting a guy ranked considerably lower than him at 205.

That makes sense...

Does Rashad have a good style to win, yes. I agree. But he sounds like an idiot calling a guy scared basically yet he isn't even at the weight. Chael at least was at 185, beat top guys one by one while calling him out. Rashad is an idiot who will say this now then will stay at 205 anyway.

Take a number and get in the back of the line, Anderson has 10 fights to run through all of you fools.

Evans is one of my favorite fighter along with Anderson, he should just move to HW, I would hate to see what Anderson does to him. As good as Evans is he will try to trade punches with Silva, and that is when he will get beat down like he did vs Machida. Anyone can argue Evans is a great wrestler and has the style to beat Silva, but we all know he's too cocky and mentally weak to use his wrestling all five rounds.

Agreed!

There is no other middleweight who poses as much of a threat to Anderson as Rashad does... If of course, he could make weight.

Rashad is done.

He'll never come back from that loss to Jones.

Jones took his soul.

Rashad gets tagged and dropped by everyone. Anderson Silva won't flail and miss like a acid using botard like Rampage, or not even bother to try and finish like Thiago.

Silva would humiliate him, as would Jon Jones if they were to meet again. All Rashad is is talk lately, he's done absolutely nothing.

I am still bewildered by these quotes from Rashad... what is he thinking?

Does he seriously expect us to believe that he could be a champion if he wanted, but he just doesn't want to go to 185?

Sounds awfully strange.

I don't know why he would go out of his way to fight somebody like me. If the UFC is not going to make him fight me, then I don't see why he would fight me."

Well he won't have Greg Jackson giving him the worst gameplan ever. So that's a positive.

Rashad does pose a legitimate threat to Anderson Silva. Much more than Chris Weidman does.
