The whole "the like to bag on me cause I'm black" is just stupid.

I won't go so extreme as to say I hate him now, cause that's just stupid. I gained a lot of respect for him in that fight and that doesn't go away because of one comment.

Zarlok, are you saying that he got completely dominated up until the KO? Cause that just isnt' how it went down in my eyes...

Then you need to get your eyes' checked. He lost every exchange in the entire fight, and when he wasn't busy losing exchanges he was running away.

Rewatch*

I couldn't remember anything that Rashad did. I went back for a rewatch and he did next to nothing, he really just sat there like not much had happened

I think Rashad is great. I don't see why people are upset with him for saying that he's black man, and they've got rhythm. I won't argue that. I'll be cheering for him against Forrest.

I actually dig Rashad more for his 'cocky showboating'. When they announced his name and he came to the center of the ring and hit a pose, I was like this guy is amazing. He just dances and smiles in the ring and I love it. I'm glad he's starting to reach his potential, as I was one of those who was pissed that he just wasn't getting better.

1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah

I'll be cheering for Forrest in that next fight. He has won the hearts and minds of fans without making comments about race. I'm not taking anything away from Rashad, he clocked Chuck clean, and should be given that credit. But Forrest is one of the most exciting fighters to watch and earns his wins in hardcore fashion.

So true! I was really surprised at that comment! I never heard any bitching about the way he celebrated, either, making it sound odd to me.

I wish people would realize that making comments like this is what makes racism exist. The thought had probably not crossed msot peoples minds, until he said that.

I think there were more boos than cheers after he KO'd Chuck? I'm not sure, the whole thing is a blur to me. Obviously people were hoping for a different outcome and were upset when they saw their boy get killed.

If you think about it, it’s like this, I’m not a white dude. My fighting style, that’s not how I move and they’re mad at me because I’m black. I got soul or rhythm or whatever you want to call it, but that’s just how I get down
They're mad at you because you're a show boating dick that plays a race card when people don't like something you do.

Here is an example of showboating taken from the same interview:
Quote:
After he hit me, I was like, 'Ah man, that’s it?' I knew I could take the power of his punch. When he cracked me, I was kind of circling and he dropped the right hand right on my chin and I was like, 'Man, that’s it?'"
That's showboating. You could easily have said "I was never in trouble", "He didn't land anything good on me"

But no. You want to point out that the KO king of the UFC hit you with everything he had and you were shocked that it was so weak. No doubt because you are so rock hard, Rashad.

I can't wait for this guy to disappear.
