Rashad is a bigger name than Weidman for sure. Chris maybe complaining now, but I feel he should be thankful to have another fight after such a big layoff. I will be entertained to watch Anderson vs Rashad although, as already mentioned, after what Lyoto did o him, I don't see what he can offer against the champ.

Where are all the people who have continued to cry because ANderson is ducking so and so. You know, those same ones who cried when Anderson said Chael didn't deserve another shot. And they said he was ducking Sonnen. Where are all you fools? Come in an complain some more.
Nice to see you got some humility there ugh

Don't get me wrong. I still think Silva is the favorite. He is the best fighter in the world. I was more surprised at how many people give Rashad no chance at all. It doesn't make sense. Not only have we seen much larger upsets, but Rashads wrestling is very good and I don't understand why people don't recognize what a bad thing that could be for Silva.

I think Silva has the better chance of winning. It would be an upset if Rashad won for sure. But I think it's foolish to think someone like Rashad doesn't at least have somewhat of a chance at taking this fight.

Cant remember if he got rampage down either. His MMA wrestling really isnt THAT good. Atleast not good enough to be compared to a chael sonnen or GSP. Not even close.

And either way, rashad doesn't have the mental toughness to beat silva. He "knew" he could beat jones, yet he stood with im for 5 rounds and got completely dismantled. He stood with chuck and even though he did get the KO, he shouldve taken it to the ground. Stood with machida, got knocked out. Stood with rampage, almost got knocked out. He had success against mid tier/over the hill opponents striking and now he thinks he is a top tier striker but hes not. He will try and stand with silva and get knocked out, got 18 mil credits to bet on it too.
If you were to ask everyone on this forum who the top five wrestlers in MMA are I would bet most if not all would include Bones, so there's no shame in not being able to get him down. His wrestling is also way better than Anderson's.

As for Machida, he never even shot on Machida, he was too busy trying to get Machida to strike first and it didn't work.

And Rampage? He took Rampage down at will in their fight and easily handled him, he even rocked him early in the fight and he completely owned and humiliated Phil Davis who was a top wrestler in college. Rashad is one of the best wrestlers and fighters in MMA.

He certainly stands a chance but he gets tagged in every fight, once Anderson tags you, he finishes you. His defensive wrestling is underrated aswell IMO. Time will tell

Just stop pissing around and give Weidmen Belfort.

That'll be just the kind of scalp he needs to legitimize his record... if he wins.

As for Rashad vs Silva?...

I suppose it would be amusing.

But I wonder how many would include Rashad- less than you're thinking, I suspect.

Top 10, maybe.

I would have him either top 5 or just outside of it. Probably 6-7.
