I know he fought at HW and went down to LHW but when I saw how small he was compared to Tito and how everyone seems to be going down in weight to be bigger in the division I think Rashad would fit well at MW. But I think he will do well no matter what weight he fights at. I think Rashad will be a title contender in the next 2 yrs.

You're giving Sakara too much credit.

I highly doubt he sucks on the ground, so in the end I think I'm gonna go with Houston for the win, probably by TKO.


On a side note I read that Houston could be fighting Thiago Silva next. I wish these people would make up their minds.
He took Tito down at the end of the fight thats how he got the draw.

At least Alexander might finally be put on his back. I wanna see what he has to offer on the ground before I say he's the next big thing. Those 2 KO's were huge and great, but they don't really give us an accurate picture of what kind of fighter he is. His ground game could be garbage for all we know.

He would have took him down about 3 times if Tito didn't grab the fence. He got the draw because Tito finally got caught grabbing the fence and if he didn't I think Rashad would have won by decision. I'm a Tito fan but really do think he would have gotten beat if he wouldn't have kept grabbing the fence.

The whole fence grabbing thing is getting blown way out of proportion because it happens all the time, but low and behold when Tito Ortiz does it is a crime. Also Tito got him in a guillotine after Rashad finally got him down and then I think personally think that if there was more time he would of tapped.

I think that would be an awesome Fight for both. Rashad will fight someone with a Stand up and Houston can Prove to everyone if he can hang with top fighters..

But he did it enough to change the outcome of a fight. Anyways, I would like to see Rashad and Houston go at it and Tito to fight someone else then they have their rematch. If they both win.

I will have to go Houston on this one. Rashad likes to try and play the others person's game way too much. Houston is too exciting too fast. If, and that is a big if, he makes it to the second than Rashad's chances greatly improve. As long as the fight is in the first round I will have to go with Houston who throws everything he has every punch. It doesn't make him good, it just makes him extremely dangerous.

So has nobody heard the rumor that Alexander would be fighting Thiago Silva instead. I'd like to know which rumor is true if either.
