Rashad has horrible gameplans so I think he would lose he would try and trade and get Ko'd will doing rocked crappy TD attempts, not everyone is sonnen who has the balls to get in anderson's face and punch him in the face and take him down like he is as mortal as anyone, also rashad doesn't have a better chin than chael.

Overall he rarely has horrible game plans. Machida definitely and he should have tried a bit more for takedowns against JBJ but other than that when has this happened? He used his wrestling in every fight after Machida except JBJ.

And those 2 are probably the 2 best he has fought which tells me he is not smart when gameplanning against the best and anderson is better than both.

Machida was the real dumb one. Rashad thought he was this great striker after stopping Liddell. Once Machida beat him he went wrestling mode. And JBJwasnt exactly an awful fight. Rashad had moderate success (which is more than most can say) and he went all 5 rounds (which nobody else can say).

Anderson is not like either though. He doesn't have the huge size advantage and the wrestling ability of JBJ and while he is elusive, it is in a different way than Machida.

eh I think he would be too intimidated like most of silvas opponents are to commit to anything threatening, weidman has the best chance imo

How do you figure Rashad would be intimidated but Weidman wouldn't? Rashad is the only one of them that has been in big fights.

Like I said, Anderson is on a different planet when compared to guys like Rashad. Rashad is an upper tier fighter for sure, but Anderson holds Jedi status. It takes Anderson a millisecond to find an opening that other humans beings simply can't see and instantly finish a fight.

If you lock Rashad in a cage with Anderson for twenty-five minutes, there's an extremely likely probability of Anderson finding his "moment" and instantly brutalising Evans without any one seeing it coming.

And Chael lost the first fight because of submission defense, Rashad's submission defense? Pretty solid from what I've seen, I can't recall him ever being in danger from a submission attempt which would be Anderson's only hope of winning because I don't think he'd keep Rashad off of him.

If Rashad can borrow someone else's chin he might have a chance.

If Rashad is relentless enough I don't think Silva finds his chin.
