You could tell Rashad wasnt worried about Salmons hands thats why Sean was able to sneak in some shots. Youll really see how much his stand ups improved when he fights Tito.

Rashad was getting outboxed by Sean Salmon, because he was a nobody. There was no footage of this guy from previous fights, so Rashad didn't know what to expect. But Tito has tons of footage, so Rashad can scout and learn Tito's moves and techniques.

Rashad needs to pull off the win before he gasses. He'll have to be ready to sprawl. Tito is going to try the same thing he has in every other fight. It would be nice to see him bring something new to the cage other than hype and elbows.
Tito just doesn't want to be an ambassador for the sport as much as he wants to make a name for himself.
He doesn't realize, as fast as MMA is growing, the fame will come. Might as well be a stand-up guy in the meantime, get some respect from the fans and your peers. The 'lonewolf' badguy thing is too WWE.

I would be giving Rashad the win if it weren't for the Salmon fight. Is Salmon that good or did he show a few chinks in Rashad's armour? I'm not sure, but I still think Evans will win, but it sure makes me wonder a little.

Rashad vs. Tito is gonna have so much hype surrounding it that I hope it doesn't turn into a big bust. It should be all kinds of fun though. Both of their striking isn't great, but its improved. And their wrestling is fairly equal. Should be fun.

Tito's been an ambassador for like 4+ years, remember who the poster boy was before Chuck "I'm too old to pull off this haircut" Liddell? I seem to recall Tito being the breadmaker.

Also with all the hype this is generating, wouldn't you say Tito is quite good at causing hype? Yet regardless of what the outcome is he's humble in the end (minus the T-shirt's). People are really quick to flip flop on Tito, due to his outstanding ability to generate hype and sell..sometimes this involves talking lots of trash. But in the end he does what he does and that's sell tickets/PPVs and his track record is pretty damn good.

I thought Tito's message was pretty funny personally. I'm still pulling for Tito, I'm not gonna flip flop on him.

EDIT: I still hate radio DJ's with a passion

I still think Tito is gonna win this. Rashads opponents seem to be hand pick to give him some trouble, but no one where it would be a challenge. In fact I honestly think this will be his first real challenge, and I think Tito will show that Rashad is not ready to play with the big boys yet, he still needs a couple years. I call early 3rd round stoppage by Tito.
