agreed.

plus, this is an absolute must-win fight for Rashad. If he loses he will probably be cut, or he could move down to MW if he can make the weight.

Probably because Hendo hits way harder than Machida?



That being said I can see Rashad getting the decision. I would never ever count out the H bomb though.

Assuming his opponent sits still long enough for his geriatric H-Bomb to begin it's take off and cruise through the air for around 3 minutes before connecting.

I'd like to see Hendo win, but I just don't see it. He might have more power than Machida, but does he have the speed to land on Rashad? I don't think he does. Rashad's going to out work him, out-wrestle him, and really test Henderson's cardio. I see no other result but an Evans UD, but would love to see an H-Bomb KO!

I see Rashad taking it as long as he doesn't abandon his takedowns as soon as one doesn't land.

There's two ways I really see this fight going either Henderson knocks Evans out or Evans grinds out a decision with combination of his striking and wrestling. I'm hoping its the ladder.

I think Rashad will win but Rampage rocked Rashad badly and probably should have finished him but decided to wildly flail at air and gas himself instead of being measured and hitting him.
