Okay then... carry on.

So Edgar has no chance of beating Aldo? Silva would have no chance of beating JBJ? GSP can't beat Silva?

Angles and who is closer to the camera could be a factor but Ace looks like the biggest and Fitch looks as big as Rashad.

Well, unlike the rest of those guys, Rashad has never successfully defended his belt.

At least Silva is 3-0 at LHW.

So what? That's not very relevant to the conversation. His point was Rashad has never fought at 185. Edgar hasn't fought at 145, what does him defending the belt at 155 have to do with him never fighting at 145?

Against the greats Forrest Griffin, James Irvin and Stephan Bonnar. Even without that. GSP has no chance? Edgar has no chance?

With respect, neither Aldo nor GSP is Anderson Silva, and I don't see how that's debatable in terms of anything really: wins, title defenses, stoppages, etc, etc.

GSP would be moving up, not cutting.

Edgar is likely still in the top 5 of most people's P4P list. Evans?

It's one thing to speculate that Rashad might be competitive in a fight against Anderson. But IMO, it's something else again to actually pick Rashad to win the title against a guy like AS in a five-round fight, at a weight class he hasn't competed in.

I do, hoever, want Rashad to make the move to MW, and I suspect his comments here are his attempt at drumming up interest, so it's all good.
