Hamill fight would you have considered this match closer and how do you see Bisping going down? I easily see Bisping taking it on their feet, getting taken down, tie Rashad up coz he isn't great at G-n-P, back on the feet Bisping lands more shots. Bisping does not suck for getting a close decision against Hamill, it was going to be a close match in many peoples opinion before it happened. Matt Hamill used to suck, he is a very good opponent now.

I've been saying that Rashad would destroy Bisping long before the Hamill fight. It's not that Bisping sucks, it's that his wrestling does. He will be controlled the entire fight, and I can see this going like the Lambert fight. Jason Lambert is worlds better than Bisping at pretty much everything, and Rashad schooled him big time.

At least this fight is better then Rashad/Tito 2. Rashad by GnP TKO. Unlike Hammil Rashad isnt going to let Bisping up after he gets take downs to make a point. Hes just gonna pound him out on the ground.

Pretty much anything is better than Tito vs Rashad 2. Hell, I would rather see Sakuraba vs Silva 4.

I'm not excited about this fight at all. Both guys looked like boorfests recently, but if I had to pick I guess I would go with Rashad. Proabably a lame 3 round grind out with little action, maybe a bad stop that every one will complain about. I'll only watch this if there are some great fights before or after it.

I still like Bisping, and want to see him fight. That was just a bad situation he was in, he lost the fight but the gave it to him anyway and he dealt with the post fight interview wrong, but he's cocky like that so it didnt suprise me. Oh well, hopefully his fighting speaks for itself so he doesnt have to explain a win that he didnt win.

Rashad has great wrestling, good striking, and can avoid subs.

Bisping has decent striking, awful wrestling, and has a decent ground game.

Rashad will just overwhelm the guy.
and ive said this before

you think someone with JJ experience would be a decent grappler....im not saying its the same as wrestling....but there are some similarities

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.

I have been saying this for a long time. Rashad is the truth. He will be a very big name. I mean, he's so well rounded.

I can easily see Evans winning this fight. And on any other year, it would happen. But this year, seeing as how the obvious losers seem to win...

NAH! What am I saying?

Evans by KO in the 2nd due to GnP
