Rashad has consistently sat in the top few of a division much deeper than Anderson Silvas.
That is pure speculation.
Everybody at the top of that division is basically a shell of their former self aside from the guys who have risen up in the last couple of years (Teix and Gustafsson)
Hendo is 41, Shogun hasn't looked good for years, Rampage and Forrest are pretty much done.
Bader and Phil Davis are overrated.
Just because LHW has big names doesn't mean it has better fighters.
Rashad got rocked and almost finished by Thiago Silva, Anderson would murder him.
Who has Rashad really beaten in the last couple of years?
A chinny Chuck, Forrest (who got mauled by Andy), Thiago Silva, a horrible looking Rampage, Tito Ortiz and a scrub in Phil Davis.
I know we are going way back now but Bisping gave him a hell of a fight and Stephan Bonnar won on one judge's scorecard. We know what happened to Bonnar.
