Rashad Evans vs. Forrest Griffin

With Rashad's win last saturday, I think his next opponent would or should be Forrest. Both are tremendous fighters and both should eventually be giving title shots for the LHW division. Who do you think would win?

I agree, both fighters won the light heavyweight division on the Ultimate Fighter show and it would only make sense to have this match. I think Rashad would win, Forrest only likes to stand up and exchange and engage, Rashad would take him down and use some ground and pound on him.

This would be a sweet matchup. I can see both guys wanting to throw bombs and whoever has the better game that day wins. I think rashad has heavier hands but forrest has the better chin. Its tough to call but ill go with RAshad

Tough one to call with Rashad's improvements. I'll still take Forrest in this one though.

I dont know my hearts with Forrest here but I dont think he matches up well with Rashad. I think Rashads takedowns are better than Forrests takedown defense. I think rashad would win.

I think Forrest would beat him in 3 rounds by TKO, but if Rashad takes him down for most of the fight then maybe he can pull out the win.

Rashad is better on the ground and he has proven to be a decent striker! I think he could take Forrest!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

cmon guys forrest has been in there with the best takedowns and ground and pound in the ufc(Tito)...and almost won..Rashad isnt on Tito's level in any aspect of mma...We saw how good Forrests takedown defense was, and his striking is vastly improved...its a good fight but i see forrest winning in a war...
